Patriotic Cookies in a Jar

Need a fun little gift? Jordan mixed up some sweet patriotic cookies one day for a fun idea.We baked simple sugar cookies and used red, white and blue sprinkles on them. A measuring cup dipped in each color works great.
So pretty and patriotic.
We stacked them into these fun sized Kerr jars that I got at an auction. Everyone wanted these jars...I had to pay a little more for them because of their unique square shape. No one outbids Mish when she's on an auction mishion. :)
I displayed the jars all on a pretty, patriotic glass tray lined with a vintage hankie sporting red, white and blue plaid. The tag was created very quickly using Friendship Jar and patterned paper from Pretty Pastels. If you get Friendship Jar and/or Friendship Jar Fillers, you must get the coordinating dies. They make easy work of adding fun accessories to your jar. The Jar & Lid, Jar Label and Jar Toppers can be found here. The ribbon is Spring Rain Gingham Ribbon, such a pretty addition to the jars.
And for all you vintage lovers, you've gotta be on the look out for an old silver or silver plate tray. These are nice and heavy and make the best serving trays for carrying goodies back and forth to the porch, etc. I love mine.
Well, I'm off to pack for a little trip. My dad and I are flying to Phoenix tomorrow.

Please note: Any Etsy orders placed from Friday through Monday will be shipped after I return on Tuesday or Wednesday. Orders placed today will be shipped in the morning. Thanks!

Auctions are one of my all time favorite things to do!! I am chuckling because I too do not let an item get away when I set my mind to it and then I tell my husband "I won"!!! He then says you didn't win anything....you have to PAY FOR THAT! LOL.

Rhonda Miller said...

Wow, what a great idea. I love the way it turned out.

You ideas are so adorable - I agree with Ted, you make Martha Stewart shake in her boots! Coming to Phoenix to experience the 110 degree heat? Welcome to my world, and Stacy's too.

Where in Phoenix will you be staying? Be prepared for 110 + temps.
