Mason Jar Money From Santa

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be fun for the boys...since they are big now and really just want money of their own.

I decorated mason jars with their names and Santa's List.

I attached the Santa to the lid with a Stampin' Dimensional then decorated the ring with ribbon and stuff.  On Pinterest they put a toilet paper roll in the center of the jar, but I rolled up black cardstock for mine.  Put the money in the tube and filled the outside of the jar with M&M's.

I can't wait to see their faces when they think they are getting a jar of M&M's...but they are smarter than that.  They will KNOW I'm up to something. *Ü*

  1. i know today will be a day of mixed emotions for you. just wanted you to know that those who love deeply grieve deeply, so don't try to hide your tears. merry Christmas; Emmanuel is WITH us.

  2. I, too, saw this clever idea on Pinterest. I actually used an oval Crystal Light container, filled with M & M's and then inserted a wrapped gift card (plastic wrap) into the middle of the candy. Decorated the outside with stamped ornaments (punched out) with ribbons coming from the top and bows on the ornaments. My grandson was so surprised when he opened the container and started eating the candy and noticed his present hidden in the middle.
    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

  3. That is soo cool and such fun Becky; I'll try to remember that one! :) Enjoy the fun and yes, thoughts are with you also, in particular, with regards to your family's loss. But we must live and I am sure your dad will want to wish for you all the Merriest of Christmas holidays! Merry Christmas to all, Donna :)

  5. I really love this cute gift giving idea Becky! It's a great two for one gift! :) I hope your Christmas day was a blessed one with happy reflections of those you love and miss! I'm sure it was a hard day but yet a happy day as well, an emotional day I'm sure. May the love of your family and friends carry you through to a bright and happy new year. That's my Christmas wish for you. God Bless you and your family!
