Late Summer is when many of us are canning the fruits of our labors, literally! Berry jams, canned peaches, pickling, etc. They make nice canning jars and decorated lids to go with them. However, wouldn't it be nice to personally embellish these "gifts" from your family because you know the "artist in you" is just waiting for any opportunity to come out of hiding! Here's a project from Spellbinders:
