Hop around, be inspired..I dare you! ;)  Kelleigh designs wonderful and versatile templates and today I am showing the Cookie Wraps template...but in a new way ;)

This past weekend I raided two far more successful gardens than my own meager attempts this year. The star of the vegetable show was by far and away the fantastic heirloom tomato! Oh YUM! In thanks for the several pounds of juicy tomatoes, I am going to whip up some homemade salsa fresca! Kelleigh's cookie wraps template kit was the perfect way to add a little something to my ball jar.

Aren't those tomatoes unreal?? They are simply the BEST! I embellished Kelleigh's cookie wrap with vintage fabric, stamps and fabulous vintage seed packet label from Clearly Vintage. Cora of Clearly Vintage posts free vintage images every week to use in your art work. Check her out.

Here is the template arranged atop the ball jar top. I then placed a circle of fabric over the lid and screwed on the lid ring.

A shot of the *business* in the back. An autumn leaves journaling stamp creates the perfect spot to label my homemade salsa.

There you have it, custom labeled farm fresh salsa...it doesn't get much tastier or prettier :) Take another look at your stash of templates and see what else you can come up with. You just never know what you might use them for next!
