Popcorn for Christmas

Popcorn - we buy a 25 pound bag each year at Sam's Club and gift it up in glass jars for neighbors, friends and family - everyone enjoys our popcorn gift at Christmas.

OK I have to share this right now -one year we did not do popcorn and my nephew said "What??? No popcorn this year."  We learned our lesson on that one! LOL

Glass jar - any size you want - this is a quart jar
Red Glitter Tinsel - this is from my 95 Year-Old MIL's stash -she passed away this September - she was a remarkable woman
MFPaHC Stamp Set - Holiday tag
Memento Black Ink
Raffia Brown Ribbon on tag - made into a bow
White Curly ribbon on Gift Tag to attach to tinsel
Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder
My Craft Spot Min Banner Dies - I won these -thank you very much!
Micron Red and Green Ink Pens to write Merry Christmas on banner
Scraps of Basic Grey Oliver cardstock to attach banner pieces
