Happy Wednesday you guys! Have you entered my kensie giveaway yet? The winner is announced this Saturday! See my previous post for more info!
I have never really expressed to you that I love arts and crafts, I always have since a young age. Well, I was in charge of providing party favors for one of my best friend’s baby shower two weeks ago. Upon scouring Pinterest, I came across this idea and could not resist creating it myself. Taking Mason jars and layering the ingredients of chocolate chip cookies! This was quite a process and I decided to share it with you, but please note it will greatly benefit you to buy in bulk if possible.
Here is a list of supplies for 2 dozen jars, 24 total. Don’t forget to wash and dry them first!
2 dozen quart size, wide mouth mason jars (crucial they are wide mouthed for an easier task of filling them)
- 2 cups of flour each (48 cups total)
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda each
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup sugar (12 cups total)
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (18 cups total)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (18 cups total)
And of course if you are like me, you like everything decorated. The layers are pretty by themselves, but I like the look of the jars wrapped up with fun colors.
So I used twine, tags, and simple scrapbook paper.
I chose paper that correlated with the colors of the baby shower invitation and didn’t want to use anything that literally said baby on it. By sure to buy the large square sheets of paper.
I cut each piece of paper into strips. One page could be cut into 3 pieces. So total, you need 8 pages. Then I wrapped each strip around the jar and tied it with twine.
All of the supplies shown here were purchased from Hobby Lobby.
Now, for the directions I typed them up in Microsoft Word and cut them out to go on the top of each jar. You could also put the directions on the tag if you like. Using shapes, create a circle. The size dimensions are 2” by 3”.
The fun part! Layering! HAHAHA. Total, it took approximately 3 hours to complete and as you can see I made quite a mess. But layers are as followed…
Bottom layer: Flour, salt, baking powder.
Lastly, I attached my tags with a special message. Be sure to wipe down the outside of the jars after filling them and put the décor and directions on LAST.
Here is another look at the finished product. They were definitely a hit at the party and a much more practical favor than hard almonds right?!
Hope you enjoyed this DIY post! I plan to share more of my crazy endeavors with you as I try my hand at creating just about anything I imagine. LOL
until next time,
stay cute, stay sweet.
