What are some other things you could include in a gift tin like this? What about some oven mitts or a mixing bowl?

To make the sugar cookie jar, mix together 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Fill the mason jar with 3/4 cup white sugar, and then pour the flour mixture in (I really had to tap the jar and push the flour mixture in with a spoon to make it fit my mason jar). Put the “Christmas Sugar Cookies” printable label on the lid before screwing on the ring and cut out the tag with the baking instructions. Punch a hole in the top of the instructions, and thread a piece of ribbon or twine (long enough to go around the jar) through the tag and a cookie cutter. Tie around the mouth of the jar.

Decorate your tin, basket or box with the “Christmas Baking Kit” label and a piece of scrapbook paper or ribbon as shown above.

Place the cookie cutter, sprinkles, wooden spoon and apron in your tin. You could also include a card. To gift the kit, wrap it all up with some cellophane tied in a matching ribbon bow.
