I am also in Michigan (traverse city) and had wanted to do something like cherry jelly/jam.  However, I had no idea how much a project like this would actually run you.  How much would you guess you spent?

I LOVE THESE! My grandma is making homeade jellies for my wedding and I’m also doing pink and green.  I have a question.  How did you make the monogram/initial thingy.  I have no idea how to start.  Please help!

These look fantastic. I was actually thinking about doing jam or a cookie in a jar for my favors. I’m leaning towards jam because I’m trying to stay under $2 per favor. Can you tell me how you perserved or canned it? I have a grape jam recipe, but I’ve never made jam before and I’m not sure how to “keep” it? Can I just twist on the jar and go? Do I need to boil the jar or something? I just don’t want it to spoil. Also, what’s your opinion on using jars a little over 1 oz? They’re much smaller than yours.  Is that enough jam lol?
