Hi Everyone!  Jenny Raulli from Bloom Designs Online back today to share a sweet little fall treat with you.  When you think of fall what are the first three words that come to your mind?  Leaves, pumpkins and of course, apples!  I don’t think there is anything better than a warm cup of spiced apple cider in fall.  It is truly comforting.  I wanted to spread that feeling, so I put together these Cranberry Apple Cider Mix jars.  Get all your ingredients set up in an assembly line and make a bunch of these to pass out to family, friends, hostess, and neighbors over the next few months. The effort will be much appreciated!

Download our free tags with direction for making the cranberry apple cider HERE.  I printed my tags on kraft paper but you can you white or any light color.  Cut the tags into rectangles or use a tag shaped punch to make tags like mine.  Please remember that the tags are for personal use only. :)

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.  For more fun fall ideas and free printable visit Bloom Designs on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest.

    Is raw sugar a special kind of sugar?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on September 7, 2016 at 11:46 am (#

      Hi Tammy! Raw sugar is sugar that has not yet had the molasses processed out of it (where as brown sugar is regular white sugar with molasses added to it), so it looks like little brown crystals. “Sugar in the Raw” is a very popular brand, but most grocery stores carry a few different labels of raw sugar. It might also be called “unwashed sugar.”

    Do you know how much each jar comes to in measurements. Say if I have to use another container what size should I get. I can’t find these little jars. Also what size are these jars.
    Thanks love the idea and really would like to make some.

      These are 4 ounce jars, so they hold half a cup of ingredients, each. I can find them in the canning section at grocery and hardware stores. :)

    How is this tag printed without the lines around the text? I plan to punch them with a tag punch like you did. The punch has not come in, yet, but I expect the top line to fall within the punch.

    Thank you!

      Hi Vicki! If your punch doesn’t line up perfectly in the tags, print the sheet at a higher or lower percentage until you get it where you like it. :)

    Hi there, I love this as a teacher gift idea! What size tag punch do I need to purchase for the tags? Any recommendations? Thank you for those, by the way!

    • I Heart Naptime posted on October 12, 2016 at 11:33 am (#

      A two by three inch punch should work beautifully – but you can always print the tags slightly smaller or larger to accommodate the size punch you find. :D

    Hi! This is just what I’ve been wanting to add to my Fall themed hostess presents for my baby showers next weekend! Question-how many jars will this recipe fill? I’m needing to make 10 jars and my jars are 8 oz so they will make two batches…

    • I Heart Naptime posted on November 5, 2016 at 7:46 pm (#

      One recipe makes one four-ounce jar. So you’ll want to gather lots of of the ingredients and do an assembly line, I think. And since you are using 8 ounce jars, maybe two two full layers so the recipient can “stop” when she gets to the cranberries.

      Let us know how the baby shower goes, love the theme and adding this to it! :)
