I did a "gifts class" last week, and this was a project we made. I can not take credit for idea, I subscribed to Debbie MacNeil's website- craftyperson.com and she has fabulous ideas for demonstrators, and does all the work and planning for you.
I was able to find the jars for only $1.69 at our local Christmas tree shop. If you don't have one in your area, it's like the best store ever! It is one that the men hate to go to also!!!
You could fill it with any thing, this is peppermint patties decorated with scallop circle and any image that fits in 1-1/4 circle.
