Hi there! Today I thought I'd share with you one of the gifts I gave out this year: peppermint-flavored Oreo cookies in a jar. They were a simple, last minute project and were a lot of fun to put together.
I bought a bag of Oreos with peppermint-flavored icing and unwrapped about two dozen starlite mints, then scattered them inside a large craft jar from Hobby Lobby. The mints helped to add a splash of color.
The jar was filled to the top when I gave it to my mom, but by the time I took this picture someone in my family had already sneaked a few cookies (I suspect my little sis). :)
And here's the tag that coordinates with it. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the white and gold papers have a shimmer. The peppermint is from BB: Christmas and the tag is from PTI Everyday Treats (a wonderful set).
I made them for several friends and family and I love how they turned out. I will be back later today with a list of Top 10 cards for the year. It's a fun blog hop being hosted by this blog. Hope you have a sunny day!

All your Christmas treats are soooo cute! I have been out of touch lately and haven't seen any of your work. Looks like you made some people very happy this year.
Monica, these look great. Such a nice idea with the peppermint candies mixed in for color. When you have a chance, could you pm me? I want to talk to you about your blog format. No rush. Just if you get the chance.
