HOMEMADE COOKIE AND QUICK BREAD MIXES WITH LABELS FOR GIFT GIVIN

Image

 

How fun it is to receive a homemade gift!  These come in their very own mason jars with precious homemade labels.  A wonderful way to show your love without breaking the bank!  I like keeping a few on hand for those “just in case” times when you needed a gift, but were not prepared.  I like putting a few on my counter for use and a homey display.  They are just gorgeous to look at as well as tasty to eat.  Click the link for all 5.
