It’s September! Can I get a hallelujah? Amanda here today with an enthusiastic hallelujah! of my own. I can’t wait to cozy up in a bulky sweater and drown myself in hot chocolate. But here at the farm, fall also means applesauce. While I don’t have apple trees of my own, I have neighbors who beg me every year to take apples off of their hands. If I’m not careful, they’ll leave a box on my doorstep and run.
Wrapping up a mason jar full of homemade delights is a cinch. Simply wrap the jar with a strip of paper and add a printed tag. Maximum specialness with minimal effort. No time for homemade? Dress up a jar of treats from the store to give it a homemade feel.
The Harvest collection is so full of cozy fall textures. The flour sack fabric stickers are my favorite. The coarse weave and slightly frayed edges add a warm, homespun feel to just about any project. (And what about the bright red applesauce? It’s flavored with red hots. YUM!)
Canned goods and gingham lids to together like peanut butter and jelly. Cut a circle from gingham paper and wrap it around the top of the jar. Make it look even more adorable with red baker’s twine and a chalkboard tag. Awww!
Don’t forget the tops of the jars. This is a perfect place to add a label or other fun embellishment.
Crafty Tip: Use a Slick Writer marker to write on, well, slick surfaces like stickers. It works like a dream and won’t smudge one bit. I rubbed my finger all over this label and you Can’t. Even. Tell.
First of all–PEBBLES WOOD STAMPS! Okay, now that it’s out of my system, I’ll get some stamping tips.
Stamping Tip #1: Apply ink directly to the stamp rather than tapping the stamp on top of the ink pad. This will allow for better ink coverage.
Happy Fall, y’all!
