Hello JustRite© Papercrafts Fans! Today is my last day to be a guest designer and I just wanted to take a minute to thank Kellie and Angela for having me! I have had so much fun. Today I want to share with you a quick and easy project that I am making for all my homemade Christmas presents this year. It has become a tradition that our family gives a handmade gifts to favorite teachers, church friends, the mailman, etc… This year we are making Brownie Mix in a Jar for everyone. Since we will be giving so many of these gifts, I wanted to decorate them quick and easy.
Making the tag to hang from the jar is quick and easy….don’t worry! Here is how I made the tag…..
Stamp the jar image from Baking Antique Tags One twice. Once on white cardstock and another time onto grey cardstock. I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the images.
Fussy cut just the grey lid off the jar image. Color the jar image with a Copic marker (if you want…totally up to you!).
Stamp the tag image and the sentiment inside using black ink. Using the cooresponding die from Antique Tags One die set, die cut the smaller tag. In the picture, I used a piece of repositionable tape to hold the die in place while cutting.
Fussy cut the jar image and glue the grey lid into place. Also attach the sentiment tag. Punch a hold in the tag so that you can use some cute colored twine to tie it to your jar.
Here is what my jar looks like! I think this will make great presents this year. We usually make at least 20 of these type of presents so I better get busy!
I found the recipe for this brownie mix in a jar on Pinterest. I have to say that I haven’t actually baked the brownies yet and would really like to taste them before I recommend the recipe. I will be posting on my blog next week about my recipe results! Do you have a good recipe for brownies in a jar? If so, please share!
Thanks again JustRite® Papercraft for having me! I had a great time designing these fun projects!
