Mason Jar Giftcard Holder


Jamie here! How cute are these mason jar giftcard holders?   I love making crafty gifts but sometimes the best gift you can give someone is just a giftcard – plain and simple.  Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it cutesy!

I stopped at Target this weekend and picked up a 2-pack of these red-lidded jars for $3, and a 6-pack of wood snowflake tags for $1.  I already had the Burlap ribbon at home from a previous project so this was a fairly inexpensive gift to make (about $1.50).  Actual Mason or Ball jars are even less expensive – but I liked the red lid on these :)




What you’ll need:

  • Burlap Ribbon OR Jute, Hemp or some other natural looking rope
  • A Mason jar
  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Giftcard
  • Printable Labels (optional)


First, slide the giftcard into the empty toilet paper roll.  This will hide it better and also fill up more space in the jar.

Next, Wrap the burlap ribbon loosely around the cardboard and insert into the jar.  You might need to fiddle with it a bit to make it look nice.   I pulled the inside loop of ribbon up towards the top to cover any empty space.  Screw on the lid and add a cute gift tag like the wooden snowflakes.

Makes a super cute gift card holder that will be able to be repurposed for other things :)
