Handmade Christmas Challenge



Where on earth did August go? It seemed to be here for such a fleeting moment. I have all these Christmas crafty projects on the go, and started to panic that I'd get none of them finished. So I decided to knuckle down and start with my Christmas tea gift idea. If you recall a few posts ago, I shared with you the Christmas Tea Recipe. Well I went hunting for jars this week and found a couple of nice old ones to decorate. 

Here's my prototype. 

 
I'm still mucking around with it and would value your feedback on how I can give it a bit of a 'wow' factor. It just needs a homemade tag and then I'm done. I plan on putting on the tag the following phrase:

"Women are like teabags, they don't know how strong they are until they get into hot water". E. Roosevelt 

What wonderful creations are you making for Christmas? Have you spied someone else's creation that would be perfect for a loved one?
