Fresh Canned Cherries with Robin’s Nest

Hello friends!  Jan here to show you a great gift idea.  We live in the country and often can our food for the Winter months.  These fresh cherries were picked from our Cherry Trees and canned.  The little red glittered Journal Cards work perfectly for recipe cards. Aren't the little Dew Drops a sweet addition?  Robin’s Nest  has Dew Drops in so many different colors and shapes and the Journal Cards are glittered!  Be sure to check out Chattering Robin’s blog for some inspiration.

Here's how to make your own.
Step 1
Pick and can your cherries.
Step 2
Start with a Red Glittered Journal Card and write recipe.

Step 3
Trim the corners of the card at an angle.
Step 4
Use a Crop-a-dile to add eyelets.

Step 5
Add dew dew glue and 2 red Primary Dew Drops to the bottom of the card.
Step 6
Using a green marker, add stems and leaves to the cherries.
Step 7
Tie with twine in the back.
