Gifts in Jars

I love making gifts in jars. I also love Potato Soup, how about you?

It’s delicious! Everybody loves soup when the weather starts to turn cold!

I created this popular project for Well Trained Paper a few years ago. It’s inexpensive and easy, and you can save some for your family too.

Win, Win!

I just decorated a simple mason jar with a tag, and included instructions, then filled with my favorite recipe. I’m about to stock up my pantry with a new batch, so I thought I would share with all of you.
