To decorate my jars, I used a 10-inch square of fabric cut with pinking shears. I put it on with a rubber band. I printed some business cards with a photo of pomegranate, the cake's name, ingredients and a note from my daughter to her teachers. I used a hole punch to make a hole in the upper left corner of the card. I tied one knot in the cord and then threaded the card on top of the knot. I then tied another knot to secure the card.
