Hi friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a fun little gift project! Actually, it’s more of a gift wrap project, perfect for holding a homemade treat. Giving someone a little bottle of preserves or jelly or some other homemade treat (or even a little jar full of store-bought treats) is always sweet and thoughtful. Creating a unique, one-of-a-kind gift box makes it even more special! With the pre-made gift boxes as a starting point, these boxes came together super fast!
Begin by cutting the lid and flaps off of the little gift box.
Now assemble the box.
Next, cut two strips of paper from the 6×6 paper pad – one should be 1 3/4″ x 4″ and the other should be 1″x5″
Now cut some of the 2″ squares from the “Happy Thoughts” paper.
Using some foam dots to assemble the layers, adding a die-cut shape as the final touch to the box front.
After filling the small mason jar with a home-made (or store-bought) treat, use a circle punch to punch a coordinating paper and place under the ring on the jar top.
Finally, cut one of the “Happy Thoughts” from the 6×6 paper pad, punch a hole in the corner.
Tie around the jar lid with twine or jute.
And simply pop the jar into the lidless box:
There are lots of options with this collection – here are a few more:
Now you can share these extra-lovely treats with an extra-special friend!
