do you think our past life included us being mini munchkins?
i think so.
why else would everything mini make our hearts a flutter?
look at this and see if it does the same to you:
oh well better luck next time for those of you whose heart didn't skip a beat.
but to those of you who did,
let's see how these mini jars came to be.
these mini jars? do i even need more jars?
of course not!
but they made my pulse go from 70 to 100 in 0.32 seconds,
slow down to 60 in 0.25 seconds when i saw the $9.99 price,
then speed up again to 120 in 0.0001 seconds when i remembered i had a 40% off coupon.
so in the dang cart it went.
this idea is not original, at least the jar aka basket part.
i saw it on martha's site and
it's in one of her craft books i have.
it was love at first site but then when i wanted to fill the jars as easter baskets, the less you put in, the better looking it was and then i thought what the heck am i gonna do with all this candy?
so i made little ones.
the liner + jar lid = magical perfect fit
the washi tape's from target and i have a gajillion cupcake liners so i'm not sure where i got these but they are from the meri meri brand (which i L.O.V.E. everything they have) you can find here and here.
but i wouldn't pay $23 for them cuz i'm cheap and come to think of it, i think i got these at home goods awhile ago, one of my all time fave stores for fun baking supplies.
but hey any liner will do.
so here are the first 2.
and since they were looking like easter bonnets, i made the bunny and chic like so:
i'm gonna stick name tags on these and use them as place card holders for easter brunch :)
which one is more like you?
i think i'm the candy chic but would like to cozy up to that chocolate lindt bunny...
that's more like it...
hope you like 'em too!
oh here's something not mini that i think you'll like!
my giveaway here going on til the 30th!
