Gift Idea ~ Pamper Set in a Jar

Hello!  Today I want to share another fun gift idea!  This gift idea I used last year for my children teachers and this year I created them for my friends. 

Fist you need a jar.  This year I used a wide mouth pint jar and last year I used a large quart jar.  I then took some American Crafts Ribbon and placed in the bottom of the jar.  One thing about using ribbon it can be reused by the one receiving the gift.

I then filled the jar with a mini lotion, nail polish, lip balm, and mini hand sanitizer.  You could add cute Christmas socks, finger nail file, candy, ect.

I then covered the tops of the jar with patterned paper from American Crafts Christmas line. Added some embellishments and a tag.

Gift Week ~ Stained Glass Jars for Kids

Today we are continuing our gift week!  And today I'm sharing a fun gift for your kids to make and give to family.  I'm actually helping my son's class make these for their family at his Christmas party at school.

First you wash and clean off the sticky glue from the baby jar.  Then I cut little squares out of tissue paper. You will need Glossy Mod Podge for a clear coat under and on top.


I placed the Mod Podge all over the jar.


Then I placed tissue paper all over.  You can over lap because you will be applying another coat of Mod Podge.


Here is a picture of the second coat of Mod Podge going on. It will dry clear.


After the jar is dry I tied a ribbon around the top and place a battery tea light inside. 


Thanks for joining me for another gift idea and be sure to stop back tomorrow for another idea.

American Crafts Neighbor Gift

Good Morning! This week I want to share gift ideas with you! Today I want to share a fun Neighbor gift I created with the American Crafts line Autumn Crisp.  You can also see this posted on the AC blog last week.

For this gift I used a wooden crate and filled it with paper filler then added my jars.  I decorated the tops of the jars and also the front of the crate.  We can in the summer and love to share what God has blessed us with.  Here you see peaches, raspberry jelly, green beans, and spaghetti sauce.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to stop by tomorrow for another gift idea.

Here is the a look at the Digital Files:


And here is my layout using both the December Kit and December Digital Files.  I love this time of year, since it gets darker earlier we have more "movie" nights at our house where we snuggle up and watch a movie together.
