Sending a Little Encourage-mint!

 Need some encourage-mint today?  These mints are here to help!

To stand these fellows up, I cut five slits in the red scalloped circle, slipped a stand from the Cake Box die set through each slit, and adhered a peppermint to both sides of the stand.  The red scalloped circle was then adhered to the pink circle, which was then adhered to the lid of the jar.  There is a white star in the center to fill in the space.
The dome is half of a plastic ornament from a craft store.  I attached the dome with super glue.  I used a Tiny Tag and Peppermint hemp cord for a finishing touch.

These mints are so much fun!  I hope you'll check out all the great ideas from the design team over at the Lawn Fawn blog!  Leave a comment over there for your chance to win!
