day 190: christmas cookies in a jar

this was so much fun to put together!
day 190 and it's time to make some more gifts ... this time in the shape of christmas cookies in a jar :)  i see these all over pinterest and have been desperate to make one.  christmas is the perfect time of year to give such a gift because people love home-made baking but don't always have time to organise and shop for baking.  i pinned this christmas version from make it do and the recipe and layering calli uses comes from bakerella who does an awesome cowgirl biscuit jar.

i had the helpful assistance of pollyanna today to add the layers to our jar.  once all the layers are in the jar, we added a top and then some christmas fabric to make look pretty.  calli also provides these printable instructions to attach to your jar so the recipient knows what to do :)

the printable labels, i printed on some patterned paper
i had ... it's actually green not grey ... need to work on
my photography :)

fitted into this jar perfectly!

the filled jar with it's christmasy lid!

outcome:  these could become my new addiction! so clever and a great thing to give family and friends that want to bake but don't have the time to organise themselves :)

sincerest thanks to calli at make it do for the christmas version and labels and to bakerella for the fantastic idea and layering needed to complete this creation ... you girls rock :)
