What to get everyone for Christmas?

Hello all the crafty-code readers,

This will be my first post for our blog. Now I can share my creative ideas with you and make your day happier. Hope this is a helpful post so near to Christmas.

This is all made with  ingredients that I have at home and this is a very pretty and memorable present. DSCF9449

You will need the following to make this:

  • One Empty glass bottle of any size and shape
  • Already baked cookies (spice cookies, brownies, fudge)
  • Any decorations that you want to put on the bottle to make it unique. (I have used a ribbon, piece of material, one large stroke of paper, the names that is spelled out and a decoration piece (a heart))

You bake the cookies or buy them from your local store. I just find that baking is more special for the person you give it to. Put the cookies in the bottle till it is full.

Put the piece of material on the cap and put a rubber band on to keep it together. To cover the rubber band you take a piece of ribbon to cover it. The color of the ribbon doesn’t matter it can be any color or theme you want to do for the gift.

Paste the name of the person who will receive the gift on the large stroke of paper with clear glue. After it has dried paste the large stroke of paper on the bottle. Add a decorative piece if you want to add that extra detail to the present.

I hope this idea can help you with some of your present ideas for Christmas.DSCF9451  DSCF9455
