Spiced Pumpkin Butter


Todays post is a little unusual, as I have a project, instead of a card, to share with you!  You see, I've had 3 little pumpkins staring at me from my CSA (community sponsored agriculture) share.  So what's a girl to do?  Make butter, of course.  Pumpkin butter, that is.  Incidentally, there's no actual butter involved, but there is lots of sugar!  Yum :) 

So after slaving over a hot stove meticulously stirring my pumpkin/sugar concoction until it thickened, the butter was ready for jars!  And, what did the jars need?  Labels, of course!  

I cut some fall-themed fabric to fit under the jar lid and made a label/tag with a circle punch.  I then cut the border out of American Crafts paper with a circle cutter.  To secure the tag, I punched a hole on either side of the circle and tied the tag to the jar with baker's twine.  I used Smitty's ABCs (Lawn Fawn) for the lettering and the little hearts are from the winter owl set.  In case you're wondering, Nov. 17 is when the butter was made.  

It was pretty simple to do.  Here are my supplies (minus the circle cutter and paper): 

I plan on giving these little jars away to family at Thanksgiving.  Here's another photo of the jars straight on: 

I also thought I would enter this into the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: Tags.

And that's all for me today!  Bon appetit!
