Store bought trinkets just can’t beat the sentiment of a homemade gift. That’s why we absolutely love this project.

Fill in names to customize and print them onto your label paper. (2).

Step 2

Lay out the food trays (1) and line them with tissue paper (7). Cut the patterned tissue paper into a rectangle shape just larger than the size of the tray. It looks cute hanging off the edge a bit.

Step 3

After loaves have been baked and cooled, wrap each mini loaf of bread with wax or parchment paper (5). Tie it up with a bit of Baker's Twine (9) and apply bread label.

Step 4

After jam has been spooned into the mini jars (3). Tie a sweet ribbon around the neck of the bottle and apply the jam label.
