You can dress up food gifts really quickly with a little bit of cardstock, some die cuts and a simple container. I needed something as a hostess gift for a holiday party, and created this packaging in a jiffy.
I started with a 22 ounce glass dome jar from The Container Store (one of my all time favorite stores, after craft stores, of course!). It was only $3.19 on sale.
I cut a piece of striped paper from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' kit, 2" wide. It required a bit more than the 12" length, but it was easy to piece the striped pattern so that it wasn't noticeable. I used a couple of Mini Glue dots along the length to hold it to the glass, and used SNAIL adhesive to overlap the ends. Then I added the red border strip in the center from the adhesive die-cuts in the scrapping kit.
"Merry Christmas to you" was another adhesive die-cut which I mounted to Old Olive cardstock. I used Sticky Strip to make sure that it would adhere well to the curved glass surface, and I placed it over the ends of the red border strip, to hide the fact that the border strip did not quite make it all the way around the jar!!
I used some red Stickles glitter, and called it complete. Below is the finished gift, filled with home-made toffee, and dressed up with some curling ribbon.
