Homemade Jams

Something new that I decided to try this year was to make some homemade jams. I made only two varieties since I was just starting out: peach and strawberry. I loved the way that they came out. Plus it gave me a chance to decorate the jar as well. And boy, did I have the perfect cricut cart in mind! I used my Preserves cart to make the tag, lid and flower on the tag. I tied it up all pretty like with a satin bow; I also added some hemp twine to the tag as well at a mini pumpkin color safety pin.

These are my Thanksgiving gifts for some my friends. I am also entering it in the following contest(s).
