Baked with love……

Hello Dear Reader, hope all is sunny and well your end; we have lovely bright sunshine today, you still need a coat but at least it is sunny :)
Today i am sharing with you a gift that i made for my lovely friend, who last week on her only day off stopped crafting, got out of her pj’s and went to IKEA for me as the raskog cart was on sale for £20 off but only in that store, which isn’t her nearest store but closer to her than me. As she loves me and is a wonderful friend she did this for me so i had to make her a thank you as she was coming up to see me on Tuesday with my shopping in tow.
Now my friend loves my shortbread but instead of making it and popping it in a placky box i wanted to do something pretty with it; So i prettied up a jar that i had originally brought to hold craft stuff, when me room was going to be full of vintage furniture {plan changed} so now i have no use of the jar instead of throwing it i thought i would use it.  These jars are meant to be used for foods stuffs so they have an air tight lid and when empty she could always use it to store more treats or craft bits.

I coloured the images using a blend-a-pen and the long retired watercolour crayons that SU used to sell to give them a soft feeling. I made the tag using a punch that makes the tag top for you in blue and crumb punching each one with a different edging punch. I die cut the oval and embossed the card behind then tied it on the jar with twine and tidied it all up with a nice ribbon bow.
Because i had coloured extra images i made a quick card to pop in my box.

this took 2 minutes to put together from the scraps but i now have a back up birthday card, and i think together these would make a nice gift for someone for their birthday.
