How do you dress up those gifts to give?  At Just Add Ink this week, there are some gorgeous ideas to give you a start, and just in time for Christmas! While my project is not strictly "wrapping", it is a great way to dress up a gift!

I quite often get Maccona Coffee, mainly because the jar is pretty cool!  It has a great shape and lends itself to be "altered".  I have filled this jar with Christmas coloured Jelly Beans and used the same colours to decorate the jar.

Using the wide grosgrain ribbon, I have wrapped it around the top of the jar and added Jingle Bells to the bow.

I have made a Poinsettia flower, using the 5 Petal Flower Punch and added plenty of glitz to it too!  Add a label and it is all ready to gift to someone special.

This is just one way you can dress up your gifts though, so be sure to pop over to Just Add Ink to see all the other gorgeous projects the Design Team have come up with for you!  We would love to see how you use your crafting skills to dress up your gifts too!



  1. These are great, a fantastic way to decorate a jar, and the ribbon is perfect. Wishing you and your loved ones a very merry christmas, and stay safe over the holidays xx
