Homemade Lemon Syrup & Printable Gift Tags
Hi guys! It’s Chloe here, visiting from Boxwood Avenue, I am so excited to be sharing a fun Cricut project with all of you today!
A while back, I was given a big bag full of lemons from my neighbor’s parents. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I decided to whip up some sweet & sour syrup. But making syrup is only really great if you put it into darling little jars and give them as gifts, right? I guess I have a little bit of a habit of putting things into jars around here.
This project is so easy, and is a great hostess gift to bring to a party because it can be used in alcoholic drinks as well as non-alcoholic drinks! Pair it with a bottle of Perrier and a set of DIY summer napkins, and you’ve got yourself a great gift basket!
To make these, just download the free printable, then upload it into the Cricut Design Space™ as a ‘print and cut file’. Once the file is uploaded, insert it into a new project, size it down, and copy & paste it as many times as desired.

- 1 cup lemon juice (5-7 lemons)
- 1 cup lime juice (7-10 limes)
