If you have a good recipe of muffins, brownies or cookies. You can make great gifts in a jar, by layering the ingredients.

1. Weigh out or measure the ingredients
2. Carefully layer in a 16oz jar.
3. Print out a Label with the instructions and stick on jar
4. Cover the lid with so pretty fabric andrubberband or ribbon
