These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I love it when there is a project that brings together so many of my favorite things.
Gift giving...check!
Cute little wooden spools...check
Vintage gingham fabric...check
Baker's Twine...check
Mason jars...check!
First I took the top off the jar and hot glued the fabric onto the lid, leaving a small space for stuffing.
I used a 5x5" square of fabric and just glued around the edge of the flat lid.
Then I glued the lid to the ring.
That's it!  It's really that easy.
Add some cute twine and heart pins and Bam!
It's a prezie!!
I <3 it!!
