Jam Start of Year Teacher Gift with FREE Printable!

My daughter starts school tomorrow, and we wanted to give her teacher and assistant teacher a little gift to start off the school year!  

Over the summer we have picked lots of fruit and made lots of freezer jam, and it is so delicious and colorful - it makes a wonderful gift!  I put peach and strawberry jam into cute little ball jars that I had, and made some fun tags to go along with.  

Here's a quick how-to:

Cut a piece of brown paper bag the same size as a sheet of paper, so that you can run it through your printer.  

Click on the image below to open up a word document with these different tags, all available to print.  You can delete the ones you don't want to print, but there are pictures of peaches, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries....

Print the images onto the brown paper bag....

Cut the tags out, and hole punch them in the corner.

Use baker's twine, string, ribbon, raffia -- or whatever cute thing you've got -- to tie the tag to the ring of the jar.  I also had my daughter write a little message on the back of the tag, with her name.

My daughter is so excited for 1st grade to start, and to give her teachers a little present to let them know how much she has looked forward to being in their class.  Hope you have a chance to give a little jam appreciation gift to a teacher you know ;)  
And Happy School Year!

  1. Did you use the regular peach jam recipe that comes with the sure gel? I want to make some this week.
