Holiday Wrap Up: Part 2

Here's a fun idea (from Pinterest!) that I used to creatively wrap these:

Run a bead of hot glue on the inside of a jar lid.

Hold the gift card in place until the glue sets. Allow to fully dry (about 10 minutes).

Add a sprinkling of glitter - not too little, not too much - inside the jar.

Fill with water.

I added some sparkly ornaments for decoration, then fastened the lid securely. Tie on a little piece of curling ribbon and Voila! It's a handmade gift card holding snow globe.

A couple of notes:
  1. I would use a clear jar rather than a quilted glass next time - easier to see into.
  2. The Boy pointed out that recipients have to destroy the snow globe to actually retrieve their gift...oh well. It's the thought that counts, right?!?
