Covered Lids Tutorial plus Homemade Christmas Gifts!

Hi Everyone
Here are a few ideas for Himemade Gifts this Holiday season.
Covered Lids Tutorial
I found this technique on a recycling blog – it’s really simple if you know how! This tutorial below should show you everything you need to know – just leave me a comment if you need any more information.
I have used the Kaisercraft Be Merry Collection for these.  I also made a few of the paper flowers shown in my tutorial for extra decoration on these bottles.
Gift Tins
I have once again used the Imaginisce Cottage Christmas Collection for these tins. I bought them both really cheaply and loved the fact they had the clear lids so you can see the goodies inside.
It really was as simple as wrapping the paper and ribbon around the tins, just taking the time to get the pieces straight.
Gift Jars
These are so simple it’s almost embarrassing to show them! I loved the idea of doing hot chocolate and marshmallows, until my husband reminded me that Christmas here is in Summer – which I had totally forgotten! Mulled wine sachets tied with a cinnamon stick and ribbon are great for an adult hostess gift too..
Leave a comment with any questions.
