Print out the templates and cut out your chosen motif.
Place the motif inside the clean jar and attach with an adhesive strip.
First activate your gloss paint markers as follows: shake the marker, with the cap on, until the mixing balls inside the marker start to rattle. Remove the cap, then carefully pump the marker up and down until paint fills the nib. Test out on a piece of scrap paper. Always store horizontally after use.
You can now transfer the motif onto the jar and colour it in using the edding gloss paint markers. It’s incredibly easy to do.
Use gloss paint markers or permanent spray in a matching colour to decorate the jar lid. Once the lid is dry, use the hot glue gun to attach a mini Christmas bauble to the lid.
Gift tags made of stiff paper are ideal if you want to give your gift jar an extra bit of pzazz. You can add your own unique inscriptions using metallic brush pens which are particularly effective on dark paper.
Punch a hole in the gift tag and secure to the jar with ribbon. Your own unique gift is ready.
