Last summer my apricot tree gave me a bumper crop of gorgeous, juicy, fuzzy apricots. There were so many that I didn’t know what to do with them!  So, over the summer I made some into apricot sauce and some were mixed with lemon juice and sugar and put into the freezer for safe keeping. I recently had a desire to make some more jelly (because getting a new freezer that’s smaller than the other one you previously had will do that to you!) and whipped up a mini batch.

Savannah, my sweet daughter, asked if she could take a jar over to her boyfriends family. Well, I couldn’t let that jelly jar leave the house undecorated!  I jumped into action and cut out a circle of fabric, a circle of vellum and got to work decorating.

I used some of the beautiful Simply Sheer ribbon from Lovebug Creations and created a cute double bow. This ribbon is White from the Christmas Candy collection.

I embossed this adorable deer image onto the vellum and I had a cute jar of jelly ready for Savannah to take over! Easy!

Thanks for stopping by!
