Canadian Maple Spread..

As I had company coming from the states recently, I thought, what could I make as a gift that is typically Canadian.


I found a recipe for Maple Spread! It was really simple and delicious, if I do say so myself.


Before starting though, I wanted to prepare something cute to put it in as I was giving some as a gift. So I went to the dollar start to get inspired lol...


It really is a terrific place to get some ideas that don't cost an arm...


I found some great jars that have a rubber seal..some rafia..and some plastic maple leaves...I had some some sticky lables and a pretty stamp...and voila..pretty and yummy .....
