JustRite Week at Stamper’s Dream

If you are looking for my tutorial on the Spellbinders New Release (the book tutorial), just scroll down farther. Thanks! :)

It is JustRite week at Stamper’s Dream! Michelle has the newest JustRite Stampers in the store!

JR Preserved For You Box

My grandma loves to give everyone homemade jam at Christmas. Some of the family doesn’t make their own, so they love getting it! When I saw the Preserves stamp set, I thought it would be great to make her cute labels that she could put on her jars to dress them up. I started with a new JustRite storage box. When I saw the drawer, I knew it would be the perfect place to store some small pieces of fabric, twine, buttons, and of course, labels.

JR Preserved For You Open Box

Here is a closer look at the inside of the drawer. I kept the box top decorations attached to the ribbon, for easy removal.

JR Preserved For You Jar

To cover the jars, I stamped the Strawberries onto thin muslin with Palette ink. Now my grandma will have a place to keep all her jar pretties. But I am going to have to come over and do the decorating. :) I am sure that will be the part she likes about this the best! :)

And yes, I did make the jam in the jar. :) Told you it was going to be the week of seeing strawberries and eating them! I would share, if I could! :) Stop and check out these other JustRite projects today, Carolyn, Charmaine, and Michelle.
