Canning Jar Gift Labels {Easy}

This was the first year I thought to make a simple decorative label to go with the canning jars when we gave peanut butter sauce as a gift.  To make the label, I traced the outside of the canning ring on scrapbook paper and cut inside the circle I drew.  

The scrapbook paper provided the nice touch these needed and couldn't be easier to do.
Decorate canning jars with scrapbook paper when giving as gifts.
Strawberry jam, peanut butter sauce, and even homemade applesauce have been nice gifts.  I must say, I had the greatest feedback when we gave the peanut butter sauce to teachers this year.  I was even asked for the recipe.

Do you give food gifts?  What is your go-to?
