I decided to make a jar full of Reese's hearts - pretty much my entire family's favorite candy!   Let's just see if this sticks around until Valentine's Day, lol!   

I began by creating a tag from a Tim Holtz die.   I wanted to create the look of a dimensional pattern, so I die cut several of the 'love' sentiment from the newly released Darling Hearts die set from glitter paper.   (Before I began, I added a layer of Stick-It - a super thin adhesive paper, to the back of the glitter paper.   This makes it super easy to adhere tricky die cuts like words!)  I also die cut several of the hearts from the same die set - I just positioned the hearts one inside of the other so that it would create an outline heart and a solid heart. I adhered the words and hearts, alternating and going off of my tag here and there to create a continuous look.

  To create the small tag, I die cut the circular tag from the Tags Times Two die using the same glitter paper.   I punched a white circle, slightly smaller than the tag and stamped the 'for you' sentiment from the Jolly Tags stamp set and adhered it to the glitter tag.   I used bakers twine to double layer my tags and tie them around the neck of the mason jar.   As a finishing touch I added some washi tape around the lid of the jar.  

Hope you are having a great time hopping along and gathering some awesome ideas for your own 'Sweet Treats'!   Your next stop is Yuki's blog - I'm sure she's got something special up her sleeve!
