Spread the Love.....

I've been burning the midnight oil fulfilling my promise to make the favors for this weekend's wedding reception.  100 favors are needed and I wanted them to be all handmade.

I started with strawberry jam.....Ontario berries...and used these cute little jars that my sister in aw ordered for me.  I made a label using a free template from Avery Labels.  Yes, even though I wasn't sure about using it, that does say "Spread the Love".......as requested by the bride and groom.

100 jars of jam on the wall.....100 jars of jam..


A handmade (by me) clay tag, imprinted with a heart and pink satin ribbons..if you want to buy clay tags for your project contact Ness at http://www.marleyandlockyer.com as she makes the best (and the original) clay tags.

I tested this stamp too...very cute but it got gummed up with clay quickly....I made about 10 jars with this tag.

Et Voila......the finished product.  Cello bag, silver twist tie and a tag...Spreading the love..........
