Today I thought I would share two of the designs I used to decorate the handmade lotion jars that I gave as small gifts to some of my family and friends for the holidays.  Another more "Christmasy" design I had done, had already been given away before I remembered that I hadn't taken pictures yet.  Oops!

For the first jar, I used the Snow Buddies stamp set - yes, again!  This little set has become a favorite of mine and I am trying to get as much use out of it as I can before it retires on January 4.  For the second jar, I used The More the Merrier hostess set.  For both sets, I used the sentiment from The More the Merrier Hostess set and the snowflakes from Branch Out - another retiring favorite of mine!

  • Stamp Sets – Snow Buddies (Hostess Level 2), The More the Merrier (Hostess Level 3), Branch Out (#113200, $22.95), Christmas Punch (Hostess Level 2)

  • Ribbon – Light Blue 1/4" Gingham (retired - use Bashful Blue 1/4" Grosgrain)

  • Tools – Circle Scissors Plus, Big Shot, Scalloped Circles #2 Die, Sticky Strip
