upcycling to make Christmas gifts

I have been playing around with ideas for cheap Christmas gifts and came up with this.

The jar is a bisto one that I washed out, The green material that is wrapped around it was a tank top of mine that had a hole in so I cut a strip out of it and wrapped it around the jar and glued it in place. I stuck some ribbon around the middle of the jar and around the lid then cut 2 circles from a scrap piece of card stock. I stamped a snowflake onto the circles with versamark and heat embossed it with Zing copper metallic powder.
These jars can be made in any colour and filled with anyone's favourite treats or even some homemade bath salts.

Oh my gosh Shell, I love that you wrapped the jar with an old tank top. But it looks like a sweater to me so that makes it even way cooler!
Great idea!
