With all the stress that comes along with the holiday season, why add to it with complicated projects. The Vintage Workshop offers some quick and easy project ideas that you can make using vintage imagery and some inexpensive ready-made objects.  Materials:

Matte Paper with Adhesive Backing

Your favorite Christmas Images (we used Christmas Collection IV - IE314 Download Collection)

Coordinating trim or ribbon

Double stick tape

Ready-made jar or plastic container (check your local dollar store for great deals)

Candy or treats to fill in the jar/container

Step 1: Print your favorite image onto the adhesive backed paper. You will need to make sure your image size will work on your chosen container.

Step 2: Cut out, peel and stick your image onto your container. Edge your image with double sided tape on all four sides. Cut lengths of your coordinating ribbon to go around the entire outside edge of the image.  Be sure to tuck in your ends to hide them using more double sided tape.  Optional: Some stores sell ribbon that already has tape on the back!!

Step 3: Fill with candy or treats. Tie additional ribbon around the jar if applicable.

Enjoy!! Until next time…

    Thanks for another great idea! I am making little chocolate candies and was wondering how to package them. This is a fantastic way (and easy).
