Snowman Chocolate Snowball Jar Favours.

This is what I finally did with the mini mason jar glasses I found in Home Bargains for 39p each.

I made them for Bertie’s nursery autumn fayre.

I started on the lids first ……..
…… using a blue, punched, card circle with a wooden snowflake which I coloured white with a flat back gem in the centre.
Next came a small matching tag and sticker to go on the bottom of the jar. The nursery has a wild area that they call “the meadow” where the children are taken to play and for stories etc. which seemed very apt.
The self adhesive snowmen (pack of 6 for 69p from Home Bargains) proved to be a little too tall for the tag I had in mind, but I think I just about got away with trimming the bottom off them to keep the tags more in proportion to the jar. 
A little faux stitching and doodling followed.
The two tags were then tied together with a length of red and white twine and then tied round the neck of the jar.

I filled each jar with one pack (90g) of Cadbury chocolate footballs that I also found in Home Bargains for just 39p, well within sell by date, the usual price is around 99p, so I got me a real festive bargain.

I reckon I put the jars together for just a little over 88p each, including the scraps of paper, twine and snowflakes which isn’t too shabby if you want to sell them for around £1.25 - £1.50.
