Handmade Holidays & Pretty Packages

Still need some quick Christmas gift ideas?
How about some yummy and inexpensive homemade gifts?
Over at The Kit I show you how to put together
But first, let me show you some cute and festive holiday packaging!
One of the most fun parts of homemade gifts, 
is putting together pretty packaging!
Cut out some pretty scrapbook paper to fit under the lids of mason jars.
Add some festive ribbon and bells.
Jingle, jingle!
Get out that Bakers Twine and make your jars look fabulous!
I love my twine from The Twinery!
Add some red velvet ribbon!  Gorgeous!
Thanks for stopping in!  I’m so happy to have you here.  Truly!

    love it! So adorable and festive. Love the colour palette and pom poms 🙂
    I just did some packaging over on my blog too. I had to laugh as I could see you standing up on a chair to get that overhead shot based on your ‘keeping it real’ from yesterday! 😉

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
