Gourmet Nuts with a JustRite Christmas Flair

Now it is hard to imagine that their might be someone on your Christmas list who doesn't love chocolate, but their are a few people who would prefer receiving Gourmet Butter Crunch Cashews or Honey Cinnamon Almonds. For today's project inspiration we went back to the food aisles of Target and found more great products from Archer Farms needing a little JustRite Christmas Touch.

Here the Jars are before adding a JustRite Christmas Touch.

Now here they are after adding a little Christmas Cheer.
To recreate these fun projects:
Cut a strip of DCWV Diamond paper approximately 2” wide and adhere one length of each red and green holiday trip to the top and bottom of the strip. Adhere the paper around the center of the container.

From the paper scraps, cut out the diamond shape and pop dot them over the diamonds on the container strip. Using the Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge, die cut 9 small snowflakes (Accent13) from white cardstock and apply glitter. Apply a piece of Christmas ribbon around the side of the container cover. Cut a circle approximately 3 ¾” and adhere to cover top.
Next, using the Christmas Stamp Ensemble (JB-08150) and the Harmony Classic Circle III (JB-08117), stamp image onto white cardstock using Versamagic Red Magic. Die cut using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, and also die cut a circle from green cardstock. Layer together using pop dots. Add Kaiser rhinestones to all of the snowflakes.

To recreate the Honey Cinnamon Almond Jar, cut a piece of DCWV paper approximately 2” x 12” and adhere around the middle of the container. Apply narrow green Holiday trim around the top and bottom of the paper. Apply narrow red Holiday trim around the center of the paper. Tie tiny bows from narrow white Holiday trim and adhere to the red trim. Add Kaiser rhinestones to the center of the bows.
Apply snowflake ribbon around the side of the cover.
Cut a 4” green cardstock circle and adhere to the top of the cover.

To Make The Bow:
Cut 6 strips of wired snowflake ribbon 10” long. Take 1 strip and adhere the ends together with a glue dot making a loop. Then adhere the center of this loop together making 2 loops. Do this with all 6 strips of ribbon. Next assemble the bow together by layering all 6 loop strips together in a circle making a bow. Adhere the bow to the top of the container.
Using the Let it Snow Image from the 10 Designer Centers and Borders, stamp a designer center onto white cardstock using Brilliance Rocket Red. Die cut the stamped image using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities. Cut a slightly larger mat using green cardstock and adhere to the center of the bow. Fluff the bow loops.
