Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release. This is preview Day 1 and there are two new sets that you’ll get a peek at over the next several days. This is quite a change of pace for me, and a welcome one. As soon as I saw Country Labels Four, I knew I’d be making a gift ensemble and it was as easy as pie. The set has such a country, gingham, home cooking kind of feel that I opted for a gift basket with homemade jam. I stamped the labels in kraft and added them to the jam jar and some pretties for the outside. My chicken wire basket is full of shredded kraft paper and I used corrugated cardboard for the embellishment along with some linen thread and gingham ribbon. Country!
These are the cutest little canning jars! I thought half-pint was about the smallest but yep, there is a four ounce or a half-half-pint :-) They are just big enough that two can fit in a small basket.
I knew there was some reason I was holding on to this mini spoon and fork. They made the perfect embellishment and a place to hang a thank you tag!
