Marmalade Packaging

My mom made 24 jars of English Marmalade for our upcoming fund raiser at our Community Center.

It is different to jam.  Marmalade, is made from citrus fruits, and is made by boiling the juice of the fruit along with the peel in sugar and water.  So it's much thicker than jam, and it's much less sweet (less sugar) more of a tart taste.  

Anyway... I thought her jars needed some fun packaging.  So here's what I made.  What do you think? I printed the English Marmalade label on my printer, punched with a 2" punch and added starburst punch to the back.  

I used the Botanical prints paper from this great product medley.  The medley includes stamps, dies, paper and these colors are stunning: pretty peacock, terracotta tile, crushed curry and I added garden green. You get a lot of fun product.

Details, how-to and dimensions:

I created the box 5 1/4 x 12, scored at 2 7/8, 5 3/4, 8 5/8, 11 1/2 and on the short side at 2 1/2, I cut the tab of the piece scores at 1/2 x 2 1/2. Cut the tabs. Before you put the box together, use the Label me Lovely and punch the front of the box.  Make the box up.

Make the lid 4 15/16 x 4 15/16, score 1" on all sides, and before you make it up, line the lid front with the label "hole" on the box and line it up.  So cute.  I am going to add in window sheets but thought I'd post it now.  

I'll post a photo of our fundraising projects, we made handbags, card kits, stamped on tile for coaster, honey jars (of course in a box), and these marmalade jars!

happy fund raising, happy communities all, MaryKate
