Family Gift's; New Year's Eve Jars

New Years Bundle

New Year's Eve has come and gone but I plan on showing all the stuff I made for our family gifts. This project is the New Year's Eve Gift Jar that we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. This was one of my FAVORITES out of the Year Gifts, yes, we made a lot of AWESOME stuff but I thought these really rocked! This was also one of the projects that I didn't get made till December because of the candy that would go inside some. I used a lot of different stamp sets to create this project but the main stamp set used is Designer Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set item #141739 on pg 161 in our main catalog.

Designer Tin of Cards

This is one of those sets that I think everyone needs! It works for many occasions and is also perfect for your project life!!

The Break Down of Goodies in the Jar

Everyone's jars were different for several reasons. Not everyone got the midnight kisses, some don't do candy at all. A couple of the Jars didn't have balloons in them because of Latex Allergies. Some of the confetti stuff had to be different too because of allergies. I also made the jars different to suit people's favorite colors too! I personally hate the color Pink so bad. It literally gives me an instant headache and makes me want to vomit when I see it. I don't know why it's been like that since I was a kid, so I personally didn't want to give someone a color they hate. lol To me that is knowing someone and truly caring about them. So yeah, I really put a LOT of thought into this gift!

Noise Makers

These were so AWESOME when they were done! I saw the idea on pinterest and knew I had to make them! I thought they would be perfect for the two little ones too. This project however didn't go well for us... hahaha, it was quite the project and story! First, I thought I had picked up the black paint, nope and of course this wasn't discovered till 8pm at night when we went to work on them. Strike 1! I picked up paint the next day, came home painted them and let them dry overnight just to be extra safe. However what pinterest didn't tell you is you definitely need bigger bells. With smaller bells, you can't slide the gift package ribbon through them at all. ROFL Another discover at 8pm at night and in this small town where in the world do you find this many bells at Christmas time no less (we made 13 of these and they each had 8 bells on them). ROFL Strike 2!  Off to town the next day yet again when I should really be home working on the gifts. lol Luckily for us I managed to find some and they had exactly just enough packages left (my angles working full time again). Home to work on them, but I noticed that the wrapping ribbon paint was coming off so they looked bad. Ughh Strike 3! Off to town again to find higher quality ribbon. They finally worked after having 4 days tied up into this project. lol We for some reason we also thought they would fit into the jars too and they didn't. It was pretty funny. The lesson don't wait to do this project in Dec try starting it in November. Haha

Supplies Needed
Wavy Wood Sticks
Black Craft Nontoxic Paint
3/4" to 1" bells
High quality present wrapping ribbon

To Create Them:

  • I picked up wood wave sticks from walmart you get like 24 in a package. Then paint with craft paint. If little ones are involved, you want to make sure you get a paint that is nontoxic if they happen to stick it in their mouth. lol All the sticks were painted black and left to dry overnight.
  • You want larger bells so they will slide easier over the ribbon at least 3/4". I used gift wrap ribbon and you want a high-quality ribbon so the color doesn't flake off.
  • Put all the bells on your ribbon first, you will want quite a bit of ribbon to work with. Tie one end of the ribbon to the wavy stick and then start wrapping around the wavy stick you'll want 4 bells on each side. Tie the other end to the stick when done wrapping.
  • Cut some more ribbon and tie to the wavy stick on the bottom and curl it.

Swizzle Sticks

Swizzle Sticks

These were awesome too! They do take some time and a lot of work because you know me I can't do simple. lol Each jar had 3 different designs of swizzle sticks.

Supplies Needed
Stamps: Designer Tin of Cards, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Thoughtful Banners, It's a Celebration, Sunburst Sayings
Ink:VersaMark, Memento Ink Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer Paper
Tools: Big Shot, Star Framelits, Heat Tool, Medium Star Punch
Acc.: Gold and Silver Embossing Powder, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Rhinestones
Misc: Wood Stir Sticks, Gift Packaging Ribbon

To Create Them:

  • Punch out the Whisper White and Basic Black card stock with the Medium Star Punch. Attach the Basic Black stars to the stir sticks with Glue Dots or Dimensionals.
  • Stamp onto the Whisper White card stock using the following stamps Designer Tin of Cards, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Thoughtful Banners, It's a Celebration, Sunburst Sayings in the following inks Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry and VersaMark. Emboss the images you want with Silver and Gold Embossing Powder. Add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the ones you want. I did each set design at once to make it easier and that way your ink doesn't dry before you pour embossing powder over your images. Attach the Whisper White star with a Glue Dot or Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Zip Silver Glitter Paper through the Big Shot with the Star Framelits and attach to the ones you want to have the glitter star. Attach with a Stampin' Dimensional. Add Basic Jewels Rhinestones in where you want.
  • Tie some gift wrap ribbon around the stir stick and curl.

New Year's Resolution Cards

New Years Resolution Cards

Super easy and fun to create! I printed out the resolution cards we designed onto Whisper White card stock. In the corners, I inked the stamp from Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and stamped. Across the bottom, I added some Silver Glimmer Paper.

Then tie some gift wrap ribbon around to keep them together.

 Download New Years Resolution Card for your next project. Simply print onto Whisper White card stock and trim the border off if you don't want the border. Enjoy!

Midnight Kisses

IMG_9910

Another idea I saw on Pinterest and absolutely loved!! Very easy to make and these also would be awesome for any event or occasion.
I purchased 3/4" Circle Labels from Target. Using the Project Life Date Stamp Set; I stamped 2017 in Memento Ink Tuxedo Black onto the labels. Then I using a Sponge Dauber I add Gold Metallic Ink onto the label. Then placed the labels onto the bottom of the Hershey kisses.

It's hard to see but we used the Silhouette to cut out Happy New Year 2017 in White Vinyl. I then added it to the jar. The jar lids we painted in the black craft paint. Then filled the jars with filler I purchased at Hobby Lobby. We punched stars and etc. to place in the jars too. I added gift wrap ribbon and another bell onto the jar.

Here are the 4 Jars all done. Each family received a New Year's Jar. Aren't these AWESOME!! Even with the crazy stuff that happened they turned out AMAZING!!! For us we made a pretty fun memory with LOTS of laughs.

We also created this for one family as it was our nephew's 1st New Year! I picked up a frame from Walmart. Slide some Basic Black card stock into it. Using the Silhouette, we cut out My First New Year in white vinyl. I added a Gold Foil Star and a Silver Glitter Star in the bottom right corner to finish it.

Yay!! I'm so glad that you are showing us your seasonal things that you made, and I hope you finish your 25-Days to Christmas. So many of the creations that you make can be used for other occasions. All of this would be wonderful for a birthday party, too. Such great ideas! Thank you.

Amazing all the work you do! These jars are just so much fun. We can use parts of this for other ideas like the birthday party jars Marla mentioned. I could see those kisses with a little heart on the bottom for Valentine's Day and a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day. I just love that idea. Even HB for happy birthday. Love the idea of custom making them to the family like no candy (I can not imagine that) or balloons etc. You constantly amaze me!

Fun idea for the jars. Even if they gave you troubles, it looks like it was worth it!
