Awesome Way to Give a Gift - in a Mason Jar

How cute of an idea is that? Give a gift INSIDE the Mason jar!

I filled the Mason jar with strips of white burlap and ribbon and put the little wrapped present inside the jar.

I covered the lid with a piece of scrapbook paper (after cutting it into a circle, of course). The name of the recipient can be written right ON the lid. No name tag needed.

Hot glue some trim around the jar lid (unless you have a nice old zinc Mason jar lid) and you are done.

This went together very quickly and it's a nice way to give a gift, don't you think? Everyone loves Mason jars... Well, I do, anyway..

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas Season.

Best wishes,
