Here are a couple of items I've previously altered to make into simple gift ideas. The little jars I purchased from Ikea - works out at 50p a jar [not including the embellishments]. A few die cuts and adhesive later, they can turn a plain jar into a well presented gift for the recipient!
Another idea also which is a follow-on from another gift [see previous Mother's day post]. I also altered a plain notebook with papers to match the gift jar lid with a handcrafted card included. These were a birthday gift last May for my friend Denise Morgan, whom I went to high school with - hiya Denise! [waves]
