Sometimes I want to create a gift that it is inexpensive but at the same time cute and thoughtful. Rather than giving someone a package of candy, for example, I would much rather create a cute package to gift it to them in. And that is exactly what I have created today.

I saw these adorable jars at Target (of course) that had snowflakes and stars on them. The Target jars were the inspiration for my jars. I knew I could create a similar effect using my Cricut and some vinyl.

This project really is so simple and easy. Be sure to clean your jar really well first. I found my jar for only a few dollars in the craft section at Walmart. I have also seen similar jars at Dollar Tree in the glassware section.

Supplies needed for snowflake gift jar

Cut out snowflake shapes using your Cricut. Get the snowflake gift jar design.

Cut vinyl using Cricut Explore

Note: If you don’t have a Cricut, you could also create this craft using vinyl and a snowflake punch or even hand drawing on the snowflakes with a gold paint pen.

Normally when transferring vinyl to a surface you would use transfer tape. But I wanted a random pattern of snowflakes. So, starting with the biggest snowflakes, I simply peeled them off the sheet and placed them on my jar by hand. 

Apply vinyl snowflakes to jar

I then filled in the empty spaces with smaller and smaller snowflake shapes.

Fill your jar with a special treat, tie on some twine and a gift card, and you have a thoughtful, beautifully wrapped gift to give. I think this would make the perfect teacher gift!
