What you'll need for 6 decorated jars:
6 (8 oz.) wide-mouth canning jars with lids
2 sheets of red-and-orange patterned scrapbook paper
2 yds. 3/8" orange-dotted red grosgrain ribbon
1 sheet white cardstock or heavy paper
Brown marker (optional)
Fine orange and soft green glitter (we used Pumpkin and Calavado from Art Glitter)
3 yds. 1 1/2" red, orange and green plaid wired ribbon
Elmer's CraftBond® Glue Spots, Small
If your jar has a one-piece lid, trace around it on the red-and-orange paper. Cut out and Glue-Spot to the top. If it has a two-piece lid, trace around the flat portion on the red-and-orange paper, cut out. Use Glue Spots to stick it on, then Glue-Spot the lid's sections together.
Cut a 1/2" strip of red-and-orange paper long enough to fit around the lid's edge with 1/2" overlap. Use Glue Spots to fasten it around the lid, then Glue-Spot the dotted grosgrain ribbon over it.
Load your printer with cardstock or heavy paper. Click here to download the label; print 6 copies. Cut them out, using manicure or embroidery scissors on curves and inside corners.
Including a message? Use brown marker to write it on the tag, then run a thin bead of glue around the edge and glitter it orange. When dry, shake off the loose glitter, then glitter the stem green.
Prefer solidly glittered tags? Pour a bit of glue on a disposable surface, use a paintbrush to spread it on one or two tags at a time, then sprinkle orange glitter. When dry, shake off the excess, then glitter the stems green.
Tie the plaid ribbon into a bow. Trim the ends in V's and Glue-Spot it to the lid's edge. Glue-Spot the tag to its center.
