Dressing up a jam jar

Maine For our favors, we're giving guests a little jar of homemade blueberry jam--a local treat! I'm having them made and canned into small jars, but wanted to dress them up to match the other things we have going on at the reception.

I topped the lid with mini gingham fabric (a smaller version of our napkins on the table) and finished the edges off with pinking shears. A dab of glue on the top makes them MUCH easier to tie the blue hemp raffia around the lid.

To finish it off, I designed a label and a special gift tag with a message on the back for our guests. I can't wait to see them full and lined up for our guests!

Love this favor! It is going to be so cute! Also, it's smart to do something like jam, and not something like lemoncello, which wrecked our guests after the wedding!
