These are a simple, easy and fun way to present homemade canned goods. Recipients feel special and the possibilities are endless!
1) I created my jar cover artwork in Microsoft Word™. I centered the image on the page and added the text for the jar label at the bottom, then tested on a plain piece of paper to assure I had the placement I wanted.
2) Once I was happy with the placement I printed the image and text onto the InkJet Fabric Sheet. I then marked a 5-6" circle around the image and a cutting line around the text in the size I wanted for my labels. I removed the peel-off paper backing from the fabric sheet and with the pinking shears, cut out the circle around the image and the rectangle around the text.
3) With a Lumiere color appropriate to the ‘theme’ of the preserve or image I brushed paint onto the edges of the jar cover and tag. I really like the festive sparkle this added to the project. I then used a rubber band to anchor the cover in place, tied a ribbon (you could use raffia or string) over it and used a piece of thread to attach the label.
