How to tie a Junk bow and package cute hot chocolate mix
I’m not a big fan of shopping for holidays gifts I much rather make something special and fun. I have no idea if any of my friends or family use or like any of my homemade gifts, but it brings a little bit of that old fashion feel I so long for during this holiday season.
So here is a little trick I like to use to make my simple homemade gifts a little more special.
I found this darling recipe for cinnamon pancakes and yes they taste like cinnamon rolls! the printables are on www.tatertotsandjello.com
so so cute! I printed out the labels on sticker paper and popped them on a quart jar, not a pint (had to change the recipe a bit) tied a cinnamon stick to the top, (thanks, M Rich for your extras) and thought they just weren’t cute enough.
So I popped them in a cellophane bag with some green shine tinsel and put a junk bow on the top with a little Merry and bright flag. Printable at the end of the post.
Then added a Heidi Swap tag and done supper cute and it looks like a fancy boutique gift. I’ll show you how to tie these easy bows.
First I have an anchoring item like the flag or holly. gather three or four or five ribbons in all different sizes and textures. I love to use pompoms, book paper, anything with wire, any old crazy thing that is in your color scheme.
lay them on top of each other and tie with seam binding or jute altogether.
Don’t worry if its a little scrunched just fluff it out I thought mine could use some jingle bells so I hot glues them to the tips of the jute ribbon. and you’re done. You can hot glue it to a sign like I did or add a bit of bakers twine to tie it to the bags like I did at the top. Just a few min with your extra ribbons and you to can have a gift that wow’s!
Happy gifting and tying!! Merry Christmas
