Mason Jar Label

Still fighting with my Internet connection !

Here is a little project for my kitchen.
I received some wonderful old Mason Jars from my Mother, that came out of the old family homestead.
Wanting to have it fit the decor in my kitchen, I decided to keep the integrity of the old jar, my best bet was to create a removable label, also helps for an easy clean up.

Mod Podged all my papers to give it a look of leather and to soften the paper.
Added eyelets and jute for easy removal.

Love the way you did the labels! And you didn't devalue the antique-ness of the jars by attaching the labels to the jars themselves.
