I wanted to show you a hostess gift that I've created using JustRite's "Preserves Set" (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). What a lovely selection of images and rim sentiments to compliment gifts from your garden or pantry. I choose two bottles of jelly (plum and apple/plum) that I had preserved last Autumn, to fill the gift box.
Let me tell you about the decorated box that houses the jelly jars. I took a piece of midweight cardboard and estimated the size that I would need to hold two jars of jelly.
After cutting, scoring and creating the box, I covered it with layers of designer papers from both October Afternoon's "Fly a Kite" and "the Thrift Shop" (both from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). These two pads have similar colors and prints that make it totally great to mix and match!
A scalloped edge (Stampin Up Scallop punch) and Stamped Simply May Art's red striped ribbon and bow tie the box together for presentation.
I then took the jelly and jam image from JustRite's "Preserves," stamped it twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with numerous Copic Sketch markers. A bit of layering, thanks to Spellbinder Circles dies (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) and dimensional tape, finish the tops of the jelly jars.
