This year I've been making a lot of "Gift Embellishment Kits". These are two that I did for swaps on Craftster and they have been well received. I started making these and giving them as gifts about 3 weeks ago. I've even received a gift from a friend using something I gave her to embellish gifts with.

These gifts are really simple. You can just smash as much ribbon, buttons, gift tags, buttons, twigs, berries, rafia, confetti or glitter that you can and decorate the outside of a can. I've used a baby formula can (I added a lot of bows) and a Pringles can (and stuffed it with candy canes).Then give it a catchy title.

This one is a chipboard can I found at Roberts.

This one is an old candy can.

 Anyway, I hope it is an idea some of you can use!

This is a terrific idea! There are so many possibilities for embellishments that this can be customized for anyone. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, what a great idea, I'd love to receive a gift like this from one of my friends. Maybe I'll send them some!

Is it because I have a waffly nose?

Great gift idea! I would love something like this, as it is really hard to build up a stock of embellishments when you are just starting out  (like me).

What a fabulous idea!
