Cookie Mix in a jar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 quart-size mason jar
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Place mixture in 1-quart jar. Now for the tip to getting your mix to look “pretty,” use the back of a spoon to pack the flour mixture down around the outside of the jar. Add the brown sugar next using the same method to pack it down in the jar.
Make your own tag or use the one below to instruct the receiver how to make the cookies. Enjoy!

A Gift from the Heart
Every year it's the same thing; we fight the traffic and crowds, spend money we don't have, and stand in long lines at the store, just to get the perfect gift for our loved ones.
But what if I were to tell you that there is an easier to show our loved ones how much they mean to us, without going into debt? And it could possibly mean more to them than that blanket with sleeves that's been taking up space in their closet.
If you haven't guessed, I'm talking about handmade gifts. And even if you feel like you don't have a creative bone in your body, you really can make some pretty cool gifts for everyone on your list. Check out these Do-It-Yourself gifts, as well as many others online!
