In September I made blackberry jam for Christmas. I packaged it in beautiful vintage style decagon jars but it needed a label to make it look like a gift rather than just homemade jam.
I created a simple brand called ‘Berry Lovely Jam’ with a ‘B’ symbol made from blackberry brambles.
The botanical illustration was worked up by hand on tracing paper and scanned in to create the final label design.
I covered each jam jar with brown paper and twine to create a rustic, homemade feel.
I plan to develop this idea further, ready for next years blackberry jam making!
