A sweet idea

I had so much fun the other night at a Girls Night Out for bloggers, hosted by the HP Creative Studio. We were given lots of fantastic ideas for unique, personalized crafts.

My favorite one was this Cookie-in-a-jar. You basically measure out the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, chocolate chips, raisins, etc...) for your favorite cookie recipe and layer them in a clear glass jar. Attach the recipe, dress up the jar with ribbons and stickers, and voila! A beautiful, personalized present. It's just like baking the cookies for them, except you don't have to deal with the wet ingredients and the cleaning up. You can also layer bath salts or cocoa mix in the jars (but not together, and make sure you don't switch around the instruction labels).
