Gifts for Local

Have you ever made these quart jars of cookie mix as gifts?
I found the recipe easily on line. 
Bob and I worked on these today making six of them and I'm going to make 4 more later. They make great gifts for local friends you like to give a little something to.
They are too heavy to mail. I had to buy a box of quart canning jars then I found in my stash the fabric for the top, cut it in a circle that fit and tied off with rick rack along with the recipe.

I have never seen this before Nan. So you layer the mixture into the jar and the recipient ours it into a bowl and add water?
What a great idea!

I am filling some with m and m's this year and attaching notes that say what the colors mean. The cookies we did a few years ago and they were a hit I love the fabric. Smiles...Renee
