4 Easy Happy Birthday Gift Tags

This post is brought to you by Kolette Hall. Mason Jar Birthday Gift Idea

Everything looks cuter in a miniature form right? Well add a mason jar and the cute factor is off the charts!  I made a chocolate brownie caramel heath bar trifle (whew, that was a mouthful!) for my mother’s birthday and thought I would make it work double duty for another birthday gift that I wanted to give.

I started with a small mason jar.  I cut a circular piece of double sided adhesive cardstock and centered it on my jar lid.  I cut out the Happy Birthday to You- Hand Written Phrase by Kolette Hall in gold vinyl.  In order to get it placed just right on my lid, I put my happy birthday shape on transfer paper and then laid it non-sticky side down over the negative space of the circle I cut out.  I traced the circle around it and then cut out the circle.  I laid my transfer paper circle onto the adhesive cardstock circle and transfered the vinyl on.

I also added a little black and white polka dot washi tape around the lid.

Mason Jar Chocoalte Trifle Gift Idea

I also have 3 more easy Happy Birthday gift ideas with cute tags and packaging to give you some more inspiration.  I have a little stash of happy birthday tags that I go to when I need to package up a cute birthday gift.  The tags use shapes from Kolette Hall.

Birthday Gift Idea with tagFirst up I used the Arrow Words- Birthday shape to cut out this Happy Birthday arrow on adhesive cardstock.  I added that to a rounded tag and made a DIY origami paper bow to finish it off.

These next two both use the same tag from my stockpile.  It uses the Happy Birthday Layered Script Phrase  .  To make them, I just used the print and cut feature.

Cookie Birthday Gift Packaging Idea

For this gift idea, I cut out a paper carrier and filled it with cookies  I grabbed a birthday tag from my stash and tied it all up with a bow.

DIY No-Sew Ice Cream Cozy_Birthday Gift

Lastly I made a no-sew ice cream cozy out of a cut off sleeve from my daughters dress.  I had already cut the sleeves off since the dress was a little bigger than her size.   I grabbed my scissors and cut off the wrist cuff portion.  I made sure to not cut into the wrist part since I wanted that tube to stay intact.  I stretched it over the ice cream (or in this case Almond Dream Bites) and added my print and cut tag.  Instant no-sew ice cream cozy with a darling birthday wish!

Easy Lipstick Kiss Teacher Gift

Lipstick Teacher Gift

If you need an easy and last minute teacher gift, look no further than the drugstore makeup department!  This lipstick kiss teacher gift can go really cheap if you want to just use chapstick or something like that or it can be a little more expensive just depending on the type of lipstick you purchase.   I purchased  Revlon Lip Butter for my daughters to give to their teachers.  I absolutely love the Lip Butter.  It is unlike any other lipstick I have tried.  I am not a lipstick person but the Lip Butter feels like a cross between lipstick and chapstick so I can handle it just fine.

DIY Baby Boy Faux Vest Onesie

DIY Baby Boy Faux Vest Onesie TutorialI made this baby boy faux vest onesie for a baby shower gift.  I have to admit that I seriously considered not giving it and keeping it for a future baby boy that I may or may not ever have.   It was just too precious! I really like the color combination of the grey vest and the tan suede bow tie.  I ended up giving it as the gift after all but it was with much longing that I parted with it but not before I made a tutorial so that I could make another one if that time ever came!

Chocolate Glazed Brownie Batter Cookies

Chocolate Glazed Brownie Batter Cookies

These cookies put all other cookies to shame.  Not only do they really taste like brownie batter but then they have the audacity to go and coat themselves in a not too sweet but oh so decadent chocolate glaze.   How can something taste so good? The only bad thing about this cookie is that once you eat it you will compare all other chocolate cookies to it and unfortunately for them they will all draw the short end of the stick. [Read more…]
