And here’s my well preserved project for today:

4 quart jars of salsa that I made earlier this fall.  I fell in love with this basket when I saw it at Wal-Mart and I picked up a few of them.  The ribbons are 7/8″ Gingham in Red and Green.  One of my Circle Nesties was the perfect size to make a circle to fit so nicely inside the lid/ring.  All papers used are from Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket – 6×6 – $5.99.

Just a very simple tag stamped with JustRite’s Give Thanks Nested Frames and Occassions$14.95, used on the Clear Rectangle Stampers$23.95, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, tied onto the basket with 1/8″ Jute Cording.

All items available from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

    The whole thing is adorable. Love the dp on the tops of the jars, the ribbon, and that fab basket. You have such a good eye. I probably would have walked right by those baskets, but you saw them as the treasures they are. Glad we get to share your talents.
