In honor of a family tradition, a bride canned 230 jars of four-berry jam and offered them to guests as favors.

Her letterpressed labels included a description of her jam and a brief note to thank her guests for coming.

Use our clip art to make labels for your wedding (each sheet has 21 labels).

Jam Favor How-To

1. Using decorative craft paper and a 3 1/2-inch circular craft punch, create inserts to be placed in between the jar's metal lid and screw-on ring.

2. Download our clip art for the jam labels and print onto plain paper. Use a craft knife and a metal straightedge to cut between the crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact for subsequent cuts). Attach labels to jars with double-sided tape, or punch a hole in the corner, thread with baker's twine, and tie around the lid as shown.

3. To create the band, wrap a length of ribbon around the jar, securing with double-sided tape.
