Inspiration: Treat Containers

Raise your hand if you have a friend with a birthday or special event coming up? In need of some end of the year ideas for the teacher? Just want something fun to take your neighbor?

One of my favorite things to create are treat jars/containers full of goodies for friends. Today I thought I'd share a few ideas for how you can dress up basic jars, boxes, etc.

Idea #1: Add painted finials to the tops of glass jars.

 
Idea #2: Fold a die cut shape over a clear bag filled with treats.


Idea #3: Die cut a box from patterned paper and fill it with a bag of candy.


Do you have additional ideas? Do you prefer altering pre-made items or creating your own from scratch? I like to make a few in advance so I always have a little something to give to friends and neighbors. Looking for additional ideas? I love looking through the 2Peas gallery HERE for even more inspiration.

  1. I have completed more of these little gifts since I received my Silhouette for my birthday. I have made toppers and attached to bags of candy, little boxes filled with candy, etc. I love your projects!
