Cookies in a Jar

    Our group just finished session seven of True Femininity (series by Leslie Ludy). The focus of the lesson was on turning outward and serving others - being His Hands and Feet to those around us, whether it be our family, our friends, or strangers we meet at the store. I thought the craft should be something that we could give away - hence cookies in a jar. If you've never used or made these it's very simple. You fill a wide mouth mason jar with all the dry ingredients needed for a batch of cookies. The recipient simply has to mix the jar ingredients with eggs, butter, etc. and bake.

    The filling process went very smoothly. I had all of the ingredients lined up in a row so the girls just had to file through. Each ingredient had it's own scoop and there was a sign in front of each with instructions as to how much to put in your jar.

    For the decorations we made these gorgeous fabric flowers. They were surprising easily to make and everyone had a blast - with the exception of a few burnt fingers...
You can find the tutorial for the flower HERE.
