This calls for a toast!

Phillip and I went strawberry picking a couple of weekends ago and I made good use of them...made two types of jam (spiced strawberry jam and strawberry rhubarb jam), a strawberry rhubarb pie, and of course ate some of these seriously delicious strawberries fresh! I made a lot of jam and wanted to give some as gifts, so I had to create a little packaging for it, right? Here are the tags:

Here's a look at the strawberries:

There was a heart shaped strawberry! I thought it was too cool not to snap a pic :)

I saved the berry baskets for my packaging that looked like this:

So I had jam...you need biscuits...or toast! Hence the sentiment, hehehe it makes me laugh! :) I gave this to Gerry yesterday when she came over (and btw, I DID finish and send out my Father's Day cards finally!). I wanted to take her pic with it, but she said no way. She was really excited about it, though :) The stamps are from Paper Smooches and the washi tape is from Target. The tag is a PTI tag and the circles were cut with a SU circle punch. The ribbon is SU and the twine from the Twinery.


  1. So cute! I love strawberry rhubarb pie.... Mmmmmm!!! That heart shaped berry is adorable!

  2. What a fun and delicious project. That packaging is so cute, and it looks perfect with the tape from Target.

  3. Fabulous!!
    I LOVE strawberry rhubarb...
    but I have a confession...
    mine comes from Tastefully Simple! :)
    I don't know how to make it in real life...
    but so yummy!
    And what a great gift!!
    Love the tags...
    and now I get the toast!! :)
    Just adorable!

  7. So cute ! Love the gift set you made . Of course you had to take a picture of the heart strawberry.

  8. Your tags are adorable--love the sentiment! And I bet that jam is yummy!

  9. Love the tags, and the way you used the berry baskets for packaging is great!!

  10. Those tags are adorable! And the strawberries look delish. I really want to make time to make some jam this summer. Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. Well, let me tell you. Not only was the packaging just beautiful the jams were DEElicious. Jess, you make the best jam in the world. Yes, you do. We had a great day (was it already 2 weeks ago?) and I loved watching you make your cards. Everyone I see gets to see your card/tag/basket and jams and they are so envious. :) THANKS Jess
