Cute mason jars labels and a giveaway from new site sponsor CanningCrafts! What more can you ask from a Monday?
We had a glorious, unseasonably warm weekend here in Philly. The balmy weather reminded me that while we’re still months away from strawberries here in the northeast, many of you down south are already well into your berry season and that it’s a perfectly reasonable time to start thinking about the 2017 canning season.
It’s a good time of year to start inventorying your empty jars, and to take a look at the pantry to see what’s all gone (I didn’t do nearly enough tomatoes last September and so that shelf is beginning to look painfully bare) and what remains. It’s also the ideal time to start thinking about getting some pretty labels for the preserves you’ll make this year.
Lately, I’ve been swooning over the labels and hang tags from new Food in Jars sponsor CanningCrafts. It’s a one-stop shop for all your jar labeling and decor needs.
CanningCrafts offers an array of labels to ensure that there’s something for everyone. You can choose between labels with blanks that allow you to write in your various preserves (good for folks who do small batches and rarely make a lot of one thing) or custom labels designed expressly for your project (a perfect solution for shower and wedding gifts – these pickle gingham ones are so cute!). They also offer hang tags, cookie kits, ribbons, and pre-cut fabric squares for decorating the tops of your jars.
I’m particularly charmed by the return jar labels. Shop owner Alison admitted that she first created these in a fit of frustration after her sister failed to give her back her jars again! I know that she’s not the only one to face that issue!
For this week’s giving, Alison from CanningCrafts is offering up five sheets of labels to three lucky winners. Each of the three winners will get to choose the labels they want from the shop! And for those of you who need labels now, Alison is offering all Food in Jars readers 10% off their order with the code FOODINJARS-MARCH2017. This coupon code expires on March 31, 2017, so get to shopping!
I would choose the return jar labels.
I would probably choose “From the Kitchen.”
Definitely return jar labels – always remind folks but I know some get recycled.
I am always asking to have jars returned when I give away jam, etc, so like the return jar labels!
I think the Christmas labels are darling–and could prompt me to give more homemade gifts!
The bee and ladybug labels make me smile!
Without a doubt…return the darn jars! I never know how to broach the subject. This would be a great not-so-subtle reminder.
I would choose the blueberry jam, strawberry jam and a sheet of Christmas labels.
I would love to win these! I really want to ramp up my canning and jarring this spring and plan a banner Resistance Garden!
These labels are super cute!
I would use the gingham-looking labels. So cute.
I love the return jar labels, but I don’t know how I’d choose – there are so many adorable ones!
Love the “From the kitchen of” labels.
Love the “return my jar” labels!
It is always a pleasant surprise when jars make it home again for a refill!…labels would definitely help!!
Love, love, love the return jar labels.
The gingham labels are super cute and I love the return jar too!
I’d choose one of the honey labels such as the CUSTOM BEEHIVE HONEY CANNING & BOTTLE LABELS.
