Find a piece of cardboard to upcycle into a gift tag. Use a piece that’s a little on the large side, because it’s also where you’re going to label the jar’s contents and write down any specific instructions for baking, washing, etc. If you’re giving a food item and thus will be including a lid with your Mason jar, you can also create a DIY Mason jar label for it, but you won’t always want to include a lid with your Mason jar gift.
For gift tags, it can be fun to fussy cut cute images from cardboard packaging–a cartoon elf, say, or this trumpet-blowing angel that I’ve cut out from an old cardboard record album cover.
Hole-punch one corner of the tag, and if you find my nice mini hole punch anywhere, please tell me where it is because I’m going nuts without it.
