From Melissa's Kitchen - Strawberry Jam!

Darkroom Door - Monday, July 26, 2010

When we created the From The Kitchen stamp set, I knew that Melissa would create something super sweet with it (pardon the pun!!). And she certainly has! Melissa has cooked up some homemade strawberry jam and created some embellished tags to use as a gift:


Darkroom Door supplies used:

French Script Background Stamp 
Size 4 Buff Tags 
Size 1 Buff Tags
Other supplies used:

Embellish size 4 buff tags with paper scraps and stamps in order to create sweet gift tags for bottled jam or other goodies

Food tag instructions:

  • Cut scraps of coordinating paper to fit bottom, top, or sides of tags.  Ink and adhere.
  • Stamp “Homemade by:” image on cream cardstock, punch out and set aside.
  • Punch a scalloped circle from green cardstock and embellish with assorted trim and coordinating paper.

  • Tie the top of each tag with scrunched seam binding, button, and twine.

Aren't they the sweetest!! Thanks so much for sharing this with us Melissa!

Thanks also to our blog readers for being patient with me this past week. It has been extremely busy here at DD HQ and all my plans for blogging went out the window! This week is also a busy one, but I promise to be updating as much as I possibly can. I have some more amazing projects from the Creative Team to share with you too! They're always creating amazing stuff, I am so grateful for such a fabulous and talented team :)

Hope you're all having a great start to the week!
