Mason Jars were produced for canning peaches and pickles. Now these versatile glass jars found in most grocery stores are increasingly being used for homemade gifts! The jars, sold by the dozen for quart-size, cost less than $1 a piece.
But don’t just stop at Mason jars! You can recycle other jars too! How about pickle jars, pasta jars, or other fun shaped glass jars?

Once the dry ingredients are included in the jar, half the fun is decorating the outside! Include the recipe on the jar so that your recipient can have fun putting together the ingredients and creating a homemade snack.
