  • Grab a medium-sized bowl and mix together the flour and salt (consult recipe for amounts for your size jar). Spoon into the correct size jar (or use a funnel) and close the jar.
  • Print the included gift tags I’ve included with the post (be sure to print the correct tags to match your size jar). Cut out gift tags.
  • Attach gift tag and a cookie cutter (optional) to the jar with a pretty string, cord, or ribbon. That’s it!


Recipe makes a 16 oz or 8 oz jar. Follow guidelines for your size jar and be sure to print the correct gift tags.
For younger kids, when it's time to craft, have an adult help shake and empty the jar into a bowl.
