Jar Tags

Wow! It's been a while. The kids are keeping me busy this summer, so I've had a hard time finding time to craft. Thankfully, my 4 year old is obsessed with my cuttlebug and helped me cut all these jars, lids and tags you're about to see.

These tags are for my grandmother who, every summer, makes us some yummy strawberry jam. She jars other things too and likes to give them to her friends, so I thought these would be cute for her to use. I've been meaning to make these for a while now and since I'll be seeing her next week, my son and I got to work.

I took 2 pictures of these ones to show you that some of the jars also have acetate on top to make them look like real glass. I coloured the strawberries (very old stamp) with copics, cut them out and adhered them to the kraft jar. All other stamps and dies are PTI. They are coming out with a new set of these this month and I'll be the first in line to buy them!

I mostly used pattern paper for these jar except for the one underneath on the left that says Home Made. That one is made with stamps that come with that set. I coloured the fabric lid part with copics. The silver lids are cut out of metallic silver cardstock that I then stamp. I find that this makes them look more realistic than trying to colour them silver/grey.

I actually have a few more tags that I need to finish up tonight and will share them with you tomorrow.

Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.
