We're Jammin'

In the words of Bob Marley, 'we're jammin'' or not as the case may be.  I am not making jam yet - far too hot - but come autumn time I will probably be making some jams, jellies and chutneys.

Thinking about jam, I thought that some jam gift tag labels may be a good seller for my craft stall either for people to dress up their own preserves or to buy for someone else who is into jam making.  Another reason for making these is that if they don't sell I can always make use of them myself!

I still have to add scalloped edged labels to the bags as I have done to two of them.  After a lot of trial and error, I have reached a look that I am pleased with - distressed, rustic and homespun - just like me!

They are lovely, Simone - such a good idea and for selling at the right time too for jams and preserves, people will be thinking of making presents - I won't mention the 'C' word at the height of summer:)

They're so pretty, Simone! And they make me think of cookies. Fun, decorative cookies. :)

I love seeing you in full creative mode!

Idea........! Why don't you have a jam jar with one on. Doesn't have to be jam, it could be beads/buttons
or marbles......

Hi Julie! Great minds think alike!!! I intend to have a 1lb jar and a 2lb jar with the 2 different sized labels attached. Thanks for the suggestion though - it helps to keep my brain ticking over. x
