Jam Jar Gift Box Tutorial, handmade box for preserves using Stampin' Up Homemade for You.
Those of you who know me well with know that food is a big passion for me, I love the way I've been able to combine my love of food and my love of crafting in today's project.
I was in Tesco a few weeks ago and they were selling off piles of blackcurrants really cheaply as they were almost out of date.
The jam maker in me was delighted and I bought a tonne and had a lovely day making quite a few jars of jam - ok maybe too many jars of jam, we'll be eating it for a long time.
Stampin' Up to the rescue however and I was able to make these fabulous little boxes and decorate the jams to match. Now when I give away the excess jars, they look really special.
I've used a great new stamp set called, Homemade for You, from Stampin' Up. I know this stamp is going to be getting regular use.
Even the polka dot pattern is made with the stamp - and you know me, I love making my own DSP looks!
Here is the video for a closer look at that stamp set and how to make the box. Hope you enjoy.
