How to Make this Gift in a Jar
Start by printing the book plate labels onto the OL1186 labels. Remove the surround after printing then cut into a manageable size for inserting into the jar.
I also ended up making a free printable book lover gift tag to go with the gift. Print it onto the OL423 post cards.
These are actually perforated which makes the rest of this super easy. Just tear into four separate cards.
Then fold, punch a hole, and write a sentiment on the inside to your book lover.
I added my gift items to the jar and tied that gift tag to the top of my jar with twine. But I couldn’t stop there…..you knew that right?
I took some vintage sheet music in this case and made a paper bow for the top. You can use any old book you have on hand. I thought I would make a short video on how to make this great bow. Trust me….it is easy and quick to make!
Great right? I love this idea! You can of course use this idea with any paper so bookmark this for the future! Tape or glue the bow to the top of your mason jar.
