Need Some Help with a Baby Shower Design! UPDATED W/ PICS OF THE FINAL PRODUCT!!!

Hello, everyone!

In the past, all the wonderful DISigners have provided some wonderful DISigns for our family for our Disney trips, & I'm so grateful for all the help, generosity, & creativity found here!

Now, I have a non-Disney request, & I'm wondering if anyone can help me...

I'm making the favors for my niece's upcoming baby shower.

This is her first baby, & we're all super excited. When I married DH, she was only 6 years old, & she was the flowergirl in our wedding. I've told her before, that, when I married DH, not only did I become a wife, but I also became an aunt for the first time! (At the time, she & her brother were the only grandkids on both my side of the family & DH's side of the family.) And, now, she's making me a great aunt!

Anyway, she's having a little boy, & the nursery is a "pond" theme - frogs, lizards, snails, etc. w/ an emphasis on frogs. The colors for the nursery are chocolate brown & lime green. And the baby's name is Rhett.

So that's the "theme" & colors we're using for her shower.

I've purchased 8-oz jelly jars, & I'm going to put gummy frogs in them & make "toppers" for the jars.

I got the idea from this...

http://http://hiphostessblog.com/2012/01/10/frog-favors/

Instructions are given in the link, but my problem is I don't know how to make circle labels - like how to make circle borders or how to make the words go in a circle around the border, if that makes sense.

If anyone can help me w/ this, I would be so happy & thankful!!

In the link, the label for the jar says, "Frogs, Snails, & Puppy Dog Tails" w/ an image of a frog.

If there's room, though, I'd really like the label to say "Frogs, Snails, & Puppy Dog Tails... That's What Little Boys Are Made Of!"

Would it be possible for there to be a brown border (like in the example picture) but for the words to also go around in a circle on the inside of the label w/ a frog in the middle? Maybe even w/ the baby's name on the frog?

Then I'd like to make a smaller circle w/ the same design that says, "Thanks for hopping by!" that I could hole punch & stick through the yarn bow.

Again, THANK YOU, in advance, for any help!!

They are by no means exact but hopefully you like the way they turned out.

Amy!!!!!

I absolutely love them!!! Thank you so, so much!!

I've been trying to come up w/ something myself, since I knew I'd kinda waited until the last minute to request anything. I still haven't figured out circles! And I finally went w/ a square tag design from an Avery program - I was able to figure out how to arch text though!

I had, actually, just got done printing out my tags & was trying to decide how I was going to put them on the jars when I took a break to DIS for a while!

And I was so happy & excited to see your post!!!

I like your design so much better than I what I came up w/ in the Avery program! Your design is much crisper & cleaner & much closer to what I had originally envisioned! I even like your frog better than the one I found!

I cannot thank you enough! I was squealing, &, when DH came downstairs to see what was going on, I told him, "I just knew Amy would come up w/ a great design for me!"

I appreciate so much you sharing your talent & time w/ all of us!

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

Those are so beautiful!! Your first post made me tear up. When I met my husband my niece was 3 1/2... Now she will be 21 this year. But I so related to becoming a wife & aunt at the same time. Congratulations!!
