Hmmm Hmm Hmmm……! How do I store or package all of my Valentine’s Day Baking in a cute way? And I also was thinking.. what am I going to do for valentine’s day gift ideas? I thought about this and when I want to brainstorm, I look around the house for cute ideas. And wouldn’t you know it?  I came across a Mason Jar, some unused fabric and random twine.

This is a simple diy and a very quick way to throw together a last minute gift! DIY: Cookies in a Mason Jar.

What You Need:

 Step 1: Place your cookies in your jar and seal the lid. You can use any cookie of your choice. If you want to create this look follow this recipe. This is the perfect sugar cookie with frosting recipe because once the frosting dries, it won’t smudge all over the place. Trust me—I have tested it and this recipe will do the trick ; ) Short on time? Toss in some candy and store bought cookies and I am sure they will be just as delightful.

 Step 2: Place your jar of cookies in the center of your fabric. Cut around in a circle. You will want to leave about 10 inches across in diameter for room. Why? It will make it so much easier to tie on your lid and you can clean it up afterwards. It is so much easier than cutting a precise circle and freehand cutting is fast and looks so much better! It’s a no fail….well I think you’re awesome so whatever.

      Aww Thank you @Emma! It is so easy and you can use an old t-shirt laying around. If you’re short on time, buy cookies. If you want to frost your own, follow my buttercream frosting recipe. They won’t stick and become mush in the jar. They stay really nice. So nice chatting with you. Keep in touch!
