Still busy creating gifts. Some for family, and some for teachers and other special people in our lives. I just love making gifts for others. It is really helping keep my holiday spirit running on high!
I made up some yummy Brown Sugar-Orange Pecans. But the yumminess doesn't stop there. I decorated these jars to hold them. I used Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love paper line. Aren't the colors just great?
The jars were simple to decorate. I used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies to cut the papers for the label. The inner most circle was then cut in half and I paired a striped paper and a print paper. All paper edges were inked. After layering all the circles, I then ran a stitch around the edge using my 1957 Singer sewing machine. Yes it still works great!
I layered a band of cardstock and ribbon around the jar and adhered the layered circles. Then I tied another length of ribbon around the neck of the jar.
