Tis' the Season to Put Stuff in Jars...

We do small gifts every year to hand out at Mr. B's family Christmas.  Last year was the House Seasoning.  This year I thought about doing a refill, but decided to go with something different.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and we both agreed that it would be perfect.  They were super easy and turned out pretty cute.  Unfortunately, I didn't test out the labels on the jars before I printed and cut out 24 of them.  I realized a little late that they didn't fit so well.  Next time I'd do a smaller label.  Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.  Enjoy!

Your label can read:

Pour contents into saucepan on stove top and simmer on low heat, add water as needed.

Refrigerate to keep fresh.

Items Needed Per Jar:
1 pint jar
2 slices of lemon
1 lime slice
2 slices of orange
3 cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
2 Tbsp whole cloves
a dash of fresh ground nutmeg (Optional)

Place ingredients in pint jar and fill with water, that has been colored red (if desired).  Attach lable and decorate as desired.
