Aprons in Mason Jars

Since becoming a prolific canner of strawberry jam and cucumbers over the past couple of years, I've amassed quite a stash of mason jars.  A couple of months ago I stumbled upon The Ribbon Jar, a shop that sells all sorts of pretty ribbons and trims.  And best of all, they package their pretties in mason jars!  Super cute, right?

I was inspired to adapt this idea for my business.  I'm setting up my Retro Revival tent at the Great American Pie Festival this weekend.  It's my favorite show ~ swarming with happy people eating from the "Never Ending Pie Buffet" and shopping aprons and other beautifully made products, including organic soap and spa goodies from my friend Paula Parrish.

For the Pie Festival, I'm rolling up some of my aprons into mason jars and attaching my yummy pie recipies:

My Retro Revival sticker, that I normally use in packaging my products, fits perfectly on the jar lids:

Thinking I may display them on, in, or along side my vintage picnic hamper:

I adore how they look!  Hoping my customers will too!

This is my last April blog post so be sure to share a comment so you're entered to win this...

...vintage tray!  I'll randomly draw a winner from all of your April comments on the 30th ~ good luck!

Hello Cindy,
What an awesome and useful packaging idea. I know that I would love to buy an apron and receive a mason jar for Free. Love It!
Smiles, Paula

That is such a fun idea...I cannot get enough jars and boxes. I think I am entranced by the possibilities of what they might contain. Who'da thought of aprons?

Hi Cindy! Now that I've seen your shop, so I can choose what I want and you have me here in Brazil, is not it? Cool!

Jennifer said...

What cute packaging! And aprons! My daughter is getting married and has a vintage theme with lots of Mason jars being used. This is perfect for her!

Linda Ruthie said...

I think this is a great idea. If possible, you could have a sketch or photo of the apron on the tag so everyone knows what it looks like.
Love your pot mitts too and displaying them in a pot is perfect.
Good luck with your show!
