On a previous post, I showed how to use repurposed tissue paper to create a flower top for the jam lid. Yes, save all those tissue papers you get in gift bags. This one is kind of along the same line with some added embellishments…flowers and leaves. I’m always on the lookout for floral decorations on sale at the craft store, so I have them on hand whenever I need them. This is where my stockpile of decorations come in handy.
This looks pretty fancy, but don’t be deterred. It’s easier than it looks. It’s also inexpensive to do, although it looks like a million bucks.
Double decker compliments came when my friend said she couldn’t wait to dig into the jam for breakfast, but also did not want to tear apart the decorations. Thank you, thank you!
Sheet of tissue paper
Stamens for tissue flower
Gather tissue to one side and tie with string.
Snip off the excess tissue you gathered to to one side, leaving about three-fourths of an inch of tissue. Cut off the string. Spread the tuft apart to shape a flower. Glue stamens in the center.
Arrange two store bought flowers up against the tissue flower you created, and another in front of the two. See finished jar. Add the leaves.
