From our 11/6/17 issue: Print the labels for our Mrs. Claus’ Chocolate Cherry Pancake Mix


What you’ll need:

— 32-oz. jar with lid

— Red cardstock or heavy paper about 4-inch square

— Beacon Fabri-Tac glue

— About 12″ red ribbon

— 1/2 yd. 1 1/2″ red checked ribbon

— Jingle bell

— White cardstock

— About 1 yd. red-and-white string or 10″ narrow red ribbon


1. If your jar has a one-piece lid, trace around it on the green paper. Cut out and glue to the top. If it has a two-piece lid, trace around the flat portion on the green paper; cut out. Glue it on, then glue the lid’s sections together.

2. Glue the 5/8″ ribbon around the lid’s edge. Tie the 1 1/2″ ribbon into a bow; cut tails in Vs; glue to the lid at center. Glue the jingle bell to the knot.

3. Load your printer with cardstock. Click here to download the labels; print. Cut them out, using manicure or embroidery scissors on curves and inside corners; glue-stick together back to back. Punch a hole at the top; thread four strands of string or one strand of ribbon through the hole. Tie the string around the jar tightly enough to keep the tag from slipping down.
