I misplaced my storebought jar labels so I made these up with my zig pens and some computer laser printer type labels.

I added little baubles of different shapes to the christmas mincemeat labels Smiley

They're kind of a simplified version of the labels I made for my homemade vanilla extract, which is based on old apothecary bottle labels.

Hope you like them and they give you ideas for your own labels Wink

Those labels look so pretty!  You did a great job!  Homemade vanilla, get out!  How cool!

Yeah I can't take credit for the recipes for all the stuff in the jars... I can provide links, though!

Spiced Pickled Runner Beans

Christmas mincemeat

and Vanilla Extract which is pretty easy to make a huge amount to give to friends. It turned out nice and syrupy without any sugar (for me with my ebay-bought vanilla beans anyway). And what's kind of cool is that i put my strained bean pieces in a plastic bag and they still seem pretty fresh and moist even a year on - good to throw into milk/cream mixtures for things like custard or creme brulee.
