Homemade Apple Butter

This will be the third year that I made Homemade Apple Butter. I make it to sell and for Christmas Gifts. So far I've made 8 crock pots of it. Hopefully that is all I need to make this year. Click HERE to see the recipe I use from
Each year I try to make a cute tag to dress up the jar with.

By designing it on my Gypsy I can cut a lot at one time.
 The apple cut is attached to the tag cut. So to get the most cut at once I hide the tag and place the apples close together. Then for the tag cut, I hide the apple to get the most cut at once.

 I color the leaves and stems of the apples with my Copic Markers to add more detail.
I used Copic Markers G94, YG03, YG17.

On the back of the tag I stamp a special massage of it's Yummy Goodness from My Pink Stamper's - Yummy-licious Stamp Set. I also write on the tag when I made it so they can know.
