#27 Make jam – and make it look real cute

by Nina de Haan

I’ve been wanting to make my own homemade jam for some time now, mostly to put it in a jar with a cute label and a piece of checked fabric on top, like it’s supposed to look like. The reason I never actually did this, is because – there is no reason.

Recently I stumbled upon these labels:

Really, that cute?! I don’t think they’ll match with my patched fabric, but what the hell, if I’ll ever make jam, I want the label to be as beautiful as these ones.
