I really love the idea of giving from the heart. Something that you have made with love and want to share with your nearest and dearest. I also love presenting my gifts beautifully.
Here is a easy and cost effective gift you (and the kids) can make this Christmas.
What you will need:
Gift label and co-ordinating ribbon
Your favourite cookie recipe
Hot glue gun
Double sided sticky tape
Take our flint jar and fill with your favourite cookies once they have cooled. The kids helped me bake ours and were very proud of themselves.
Select a gift label you like. I used two different ones here. The pink and red is from Style Me Gorgeous and can be purchased here. The green and red design is from Fairydust Design. Toni's website is currently getting a makeover, however you can email Toni if you would like to purchase. Toni's email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Select a ribbon that coordinates with the label and cut a piece long enough to wrap around the jar from the lid to the base. You will need extra for the bow.
Use the glue gun to secure the ribbon to the base and the lid. Then take the remaining ribbon and tie a neat bow and secure with hot glue.
If you are printing out the labels yourself you will need a colour printer and guillotine. Cut out your labels and place double sided tape on the blank side. Make sure you place the tape right up to the edge of the gift tag so it doesn't come away from the jar. Secure firmly on the jar.
There you have it. A beautifully presented gift made with love!
