The old pear tree in the side yard has always given us a lot of fruit.
This year it seemed abundantly overloaded.
We usually don’t do anything with the pears.
The kids, on occasion, have used them for batting practice.
Feeling inspired this year, I decided to make pear sauce and pear butter.
So, on a beautifully warm end of Summer day, I enlisted the help of my three grandsons
to pick pears. The boys enthusiastically agreed. (can you find the third boy?)
It didn’t take long for them to fill three large buckets full of pears.
It takes approximately 30 pears for one batch.
After making one batch of pear sauce and two batches of pear butter, I remembered why
I don’t make it every year. Peeling pears is a lot of work.
After all the work that goes into canning the fruit, I needed pretty labels to put on the jars.
(I will be giving some away.)
Here’s what I used: (*affiliate link)
- Styletechcraft Craft Vinyl: Matte Black* and Gold*
- StyleTechCraft™ Vinyl Transfer Tape*
- StyleTechCraft™ Vinyl Tool Kit*
- Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die-Cutting Machine*
- Uchida Clever Lever Mega Circle Craft Punch*
- DCWV Honey Dear Paper Pad
- Gold and White Twine*

- Measure and size the SVG label file so that the labels fit the side of the jar.
- Cut the labels and the words using the Silhouette Cameo.
- Use the vinyl pick tool to remove the excess vinyl inside and around the words.
- Use the transfer tape to layer the words and the labels.
- Apply the finished label onto the jar.
I used the Uchida Clever Lever Mega Circle Craft Punch* to punch a perfectly sized circle to fit under the canning ring.
Because little details make a difference…
I wrapped gold and white twine around the neck of the jar and attached a small tag.
