Gussied-Up Mason Jar Gifts

“Gussied-up” is one of those phrases that pops into my mind sometimes and immediately brings back a flood of memories of my grandma.  I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m pretty much a carbon copy of her, according to my mom and other relatives, so I’m certain she’d approve of the title of this post.  Y’all know how much I love using Mason jars, so whenever I can, I like to use them for gift packaging instead of decorated bags or wrapped boxes. I especially adore using the blue and, now, green glass jars from Ball…woohoo!

For this Birthday Treat Jar, I wrapped washi tape around the lid, tied on another ribbon and attached a mini-pinwheel, and wrote “Happy Birthday” on a tag I punched out of chalkboard vinyl.  Less than five minutes, and it’s a cute little gift, ready to present to your friend.

The green glass jars are quart size, which makes them perfect for casual flower arrangements. I made this tag a few weeks ago at a stamping workshop, and thought it was a perfect addition to this jar of flowering branches from my yard.  I love that the word “Perfection” is molded into the glass jar.

And, last but not least, this faux-apothecary jar I made for a friend’s birthday a couple of years ago.  I used a glass candlestick from the dollar store and a regular quart Mason jar, added a ribbon and a large chalkboard vinyl label, and filled it with birthday Oreos. Oh, and of course I attached the jar to the candlestick with E6000. ‘Cause it’s my favorite adhesive ever!

So, three easy ideas for “gussying up” your Mason jars…don’t you just want to give something to someone now?  (My front porch is always available for drop-offs!)
