I have not been very crafty this summer; not that I am normally crafty, but Pinterest has helped me lean at least a little bit in that direction. I'm not real sure what I did the whole first month I was out of school, but school work was not it! As Tara said at the beginning of her post today, where did July come from?!?
I've been thinking about parent volunteers and others who help in my classroom. While some years the help is very limited, other years I have some great helpers. Pinterest inspired many cute ideas, but I never get around to doing anything about it. So, as I was getting lunch today, I noticed the strawberry jam I made a couple weeks ago sitting in the freezer. I believe it was 3 years ago when I made a very large amount of jam (30+ jars) and used jam as a gift for EVERYTHING! I would just drop it in a bag with a little card and a note of thanks.
To make my life even easier, I created these little guys today. I plan to print them on cardstock, attach them to the lid of the jar, tie a little ribbon around the middle of the jar and gift away!
|This label fits in the rim of my plastic jam jars.|
|This label covers most of the lid.|
You can download your own copy of these labels here. Both labels are on one sheet. I'm hoping to create some more labels to go with other ideas I have so I have some "ready made" things when school starts.
