Hi Everyone – an easy neighbor gift to share today. It’s really two gifts in one as the decoration for the main gift serves as a mini-gift too!
First of all I have taken some of the Fa-La-La-La-La paper from the Holly Jolly Christmas Collection
and used it to cover the lid of my jar.
You can see a tutorial on how to do that below – all it takes is a pair of scissors and some mod-podge!
I have also used some of the Element Stickers to add some extra detail around the edge.
I filled the jar with my Christmas bark and for decoration I created a few blank tags that could then be used be the recipient to decorate their Christmas gifts.
I used a few of the digital journal tags
, printed them onto matte photo paper, and used double sided adhesive chipboard to give them some weight and add a plain paper backing so they can be written on. I secured them round the treat jar with a generous length of bakers twine
that can be used to attach the tags to gifts.
To make the Christmas Bark – melt some white chocolate, throw on some crushed green and red M&M’s, a few smashed Candy Canes and try and hide until December starts!!
