Pretty jam labels... win a crafting die!

What's better than a free giveaway?
A giveaway and an idea for easy make ahead Christmas gifts on a shoestring.

Today's your lucky day! Click right here to enter to win the die for the pretty paper above in the Spellbinders Paper Arts' Designer Favorites blog hop giveaway.

Every summer my garden and the Farmers Market tempt me to make Christmas gifts ahead of time.
The jams taste of sunshine, the sweetest of fruits and pure love.

Those gorgeous jams deserve a lovely label, don't they?
I used my design for a lacy little leafy heart from Spellbinders Paper Arts.

The how to couldn't be simpler.
You just cut the die from the paper of your choice

Write the name of the preserve on the heart shape center, then gently shape the paper into a slight curve so it conforms to the shape of your jar.

Glue to the front of the jar, add a little ribbon or paper cuff to the ring, and you're good to go.

Pour yourself a glass of iced tea and sip in the shade. Pat yourself on the back.

You, my friend, have Christmas gifts in the bag already.
Summer in a jar is going to be pretty wonderful in the middle of winter!
