The DIY Gift

Last week I was busy with preparing for an event that was held on Tuesday. A lot of people helped, so of course we (we as in me and my study group) wanted to thank them for taking time out of their busy schedules to help us.
For me, a ‘thank you present’ never has to be very expensive. If someone puts time and effort into making something, I appreciate that a lot. Since I was on the ‘thank you gift duty’ I decided to turn it into a little DIY blog post!

What do you need?
- A small glass jar with a lid
- ‘Thank you’ cards (I found mine at a craft store)
- Organza fabric or wide ribbons.
- Lots of candy or chocolate

First, take off all the stickers on the glass jar. I always hate it when those stickers don’t come off easily, but luckily I could peel them off in no time!
Fill the jar with lots and lots of sweets! I went for candy and licorice, because most people like that.
Cut out long, wide ribbons from the organza fabric, if you already have wide ribbons, you can go to the next step!
Put the ribbon around the glass jar and make it into a bow. I had no idea how to make a bow, but l learned it last year in a Zoella vlog (at least, I think it was a Zoella vlog). I think the bow looks very festive and cute on the jar and if you are very precise like me, you want to make sure that the bow looks symmetrical for an even better finish.
To finish it, tie the ‘thank you’ card around the ribbon and you are done!

There you have it: your own DIY present that will put a smile on everyone’s face! It looks very thoughtful and super yummy because of all the deliciousness that is inside it. Definitely something I will make more often when I need a cute and small present!
