Jar Supplies You Will Needed:

Let’s Make Honey Butter Gift Jars

First, you want to cut three pieces of fabric into 5-inch circles

After you have made the honey butter recipe (just takes 5 minutes) and filled the clean jars, remove the rim from the jar lid and place the fabric on the inner lid piece of the filled mason jar then screw the outer lid back on over the fabric (see image below).

Next, using cardstock and your computer, print tags (or you can handwrite them for a more personal touch.  I used the font “Cheryl Hand“, size 15, center alignment and I laid it all out using the template in Word for 1.6” circle labels. Then printed it on my cardstock.

Cut out the cardstock tags with a 1-inch punch (or you could cut them out by hand).

Then use a tiny hole punch (I used a 1/16th) to punch a hole on the tags to thread twine through.

Cut a long piece of twine for each jar and wrap it around each lid several times and tie in a knot.

Next, cut a piece of tinsel twine long enough to go around each lid with enough extra to twist together for each jar.  Wrap each piece around the lid and twist ends together.

Add a small piece of “holly” ribbon to twine on each jar and thread tags onto twine and tie.
