I recently had a FB Norwex party to earn money towards buying a Norwex mop for my youngest daughter who is in the Navy and moved off base into a house last month. I love my Norwex mop and wanted her to have one for her rental house, so I thought I'd have a party and stock up on a few essentials, too. I wanted to thank my friends who made purchases to help me reach my goal, so I made some special tags to put on homemade blackberry jam for the ones who live locally. I have wild blackberries that grow on my property, and I make about 4 batches of blackberry jam every summer. I thought it would be a lovely gift. For my friends in other states who participated in my Norwex party, I will send thank you cards.
For the tags, I cut them out using a Gina Marie Designs stitched banner die and then stamped the "Thank You" sentiment and some small leaves on the tag. I used a Paper Studio embossing folder (called "Leaves") to emboss leaves on the tag after stamping my sentiment and leaves. Then I added some chipboard sentiments/illustrations from a fall-themed chipboard set. I created a spot for the ribbon by using a hole punch and then used some brown ribbon to attach the tags to the jam jars.
For the thank you card, I created a banner-shaped card using the same Gina Marie Designs stitched banner set I used for the tags but in a larger size. I cut out a banner for the front and then made the banner-shaped card by placing a piece of folded paper just inside the cutting edge of the die on the left side. I adhered the banner to the front after stamping and embossing it. Then I added a chipboard circle with a leaf cut out. For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment and added a chipboard leaf after inking the edges to make it stand out a little more.
