Christmas Dinner Favors

Each year we have a big Christmas Eve dinner with my cousins. When my mom hosts it at her house she likes to have little favors for everyone. She has put me in charge of coming up with the favors the last two years. Here is what I came up with this year:
I bought some bead jars and mints. I filled the jars with the mints. They hold about 13. I used some old ribbon I had laying around to glue around the top. I used the craft glue dots. I found that if I stuck a tiny piece of it on and then pulled, it would stretch around the top and then I could stick my ribbon to it. (I would have taken a picture but wasn't really planning on posting about this! Hopefully you understand what I mean.:) ) Then I used my digital scrapbook program to make circle labels to go on top. I was happy with the way they turned out so I made another set to take to my husband's Christmas dinner. The jars for my husband's side say "Merry Christmas 2010"
The jars for my side say "Christmas Eve 2010"
They are sure to add some Christmas cheer!
