This Week on Pinterest, March 1, 2013Nicely packaged homemade boiled apple cider syrup. By Erin Boyle on Reading My Tea Leaves. Everything about this blog post is scrumptious — the packaging, the recipe and the photography. (Image courtesy of Reading My Tea Leaves)

Coloured hot glue "wax" seal adornment. By Shane Powers on Martha Stewart Living's the Crafts Dept. Similar concept as above, different look. Brown paper, string and a "wax" seal — wine bottles wrapped with old-world appeal.

+ Men's tie gift topper. By Amy Atlas on Sweet Designs. A little piece of ribbon cut and tied just right looks like a miniature men's tie.
