How to: Pimp that Preserve 2010
After a week off to fill a crazy amount of etsy orders, I’m back on the blog. It’s so great that so many stockings will be filled with seeds and that so many people will be growing such interesting fruits and vegetables this spring.
With Christmas fast approaching, this week will be a little craftier than usual, but I promise there are lots of nice recipes coming up.
While my entry is far from being the most creative, I am pleased that I found such a quick, easy, and entirely recycled way to wrap up the jars I’m giving as gifts.
This is probably the simplest tutorial on the internet.
Find box of old Christmas cards that you can’t seem to throw away. The tackier, the better.
Cut circles out of old Christmas cards that are the same size or just a little smaller that your lids. I used an Olfa compass cutter, but tracing and using scissors would be fine.
I used this great Snowflake punch, which makes a nice layered effect with the silver of the lid showing through.
Remove ring, put circle of card over lid, put ring back on. Presto! Eco-friendly gift giving!
