But now it's a mint/other small candy holder! I got this idea when I was at my grandma's house and I saw that she was using a clean empty peanut butter jar to hold candy. So I took a peanut butter jar and decorated it. Wink I didn't keep this one, it was a Christmas gift for a friend of mine.

I can write up a tutorial for these if anyone is interested. Wink

I like this idea a LOT, but only one thing - make sure the recipient knows it used to be peanut butter container. . .i say this because i have a SEVERELY allergic child - to peanuts/tree nuts and that container - even if cleaned out well, could have some peanut oil residue remaining (peanut oil can be very hard to remove completely).

i really do like your jar.  so much so that i plan on doing similarly with my applesauce and apple butter containers.  Smiley

Oh this is really pretty! I would be interested in knowing how to do it. I am planning on making cookies/treats for some gifts for Christmas and something like this would make a great container for them! Like two gifts in one Wink

Definitely a good tip happyfrog! Peanut allergies can be so severe and it doesn't take much for some people to have a reaction. It must be scary at times because so many foods have peanut/nuts in them as ingredients...stuff you would never even suspect!
