Fun finds!

I really wanted to share a couple of Christmas finds with you that I have recently come across and love.  The first one being "Cookies in a jar".  This great idea landed in my inbox via The Organised Housewife.  If you have'nt visited Katrina's website make sure you do - it is crammed with Christmas things to organise, make, bake and do.  She always has a load of great ideas for gifts like the "Cookies in a jar".
What do you think?  I thought this would make a great teacher gift or something to have on standby as a last minute gift you can grab from your cupboard.

Cookies in a Jar

Place the ingredients in jar (1.5L) in the following order:
  1. 1 1/3 cup Plain Flour
  2. 1 tsp baking soda
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp salt
  5. 1 cup oats
  6. 1 cup christmas m&m’s
  7. 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  8. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  9. 1/2 cup castor sugar
  10. 1/2 cup coconut
How to make
  • Place lid on jar
  • Decorate with ribbon
  • Add label to front and back
You could make your own labels or goto The Organised Housewife website and download and print the labels shown below  here .

This next one will be a holiday sanity saver I promise!
