This is just a quick post to tell you about another Christmas present we made. This time it was for my Mother and Father in Law. I suspect like us you have people who never seem to know what they want for Christmas or Birthday. My in-laws are quite good at this (but then again so am I!). One birthday when MIL just didn’t know and kept telling us ‘I don’t know’, we decided to buy a ‘duuno’. In this instance it was a fabric chicken doorstop – which it has to be said is in use.
This Christmas we were again getting the, ‘there’s nothing that we want/need’ message when I came across the Jar of Nothing on Craftbits website and just knew we had to make it for MIL and FIL. Matthew printed off a label, as we didn’t have a suitable label to print it on a little internet research suggested painting some pva glue on a metal surface (we used the back of a baking tray), placing your paper on the glue and once it had absorbed some to then place it on the glass. I have to admit it worked a treat and looked quite professional. We also made a little bow to go on the top.
Needless to say it provided a bit of a laugh on Christmas Day.
