Hi everyone, it’s Jess from Everyday Party Magazine. It’s the season of giving, and if you are like me at all, your list is longer than your budget. Here's a super quick and affordable holiday gift idea!
1: Find the Images in Design Space
2: Create the Recipe Label
Type the instructions for mixing the wet and dry cookie ingredients, and align it on the stationery where you would like it.
Select the images and text, size it to fit your jar, and attach the images to each other.
Next, flatten the images. This will make them a Print, Then Cut file.
3: Print Out Tags
4: Cut Out Tags
Choose printable vinyl in the drop-down menu, and cut the file.
Remove the cut file and apply to the mason jar. This cut file isn’t a simple rectangle; some of the cookie images on the bottom overlap the edge, and there is a bleed on the vinyl when it prints. Your Cricut will cut around it.
I have used printable vinyl for water bottle wrappers, party favor boxes, and so much more. I almost always have several packages at home.
Mason Jar Oatmeal Cookies
I used an adaptation of our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and layered the dry ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar. You could easily use any recipe you want, but if you choose to use this recipe, you can get the cut file here.
1 C Oatmeal
¾ C White Sugar
1 C Chocolate Chips
¾ C Brown Sugar (packed)
1 ½ C Flour
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Cinnamon
Begin by layering each ingredient as they are listed above. (Gently pack the layers with the back of a spoon if necessary)
For the label:
Preheat oven to 350*
Mix 2 eggs,
3/4 cup softened butter,
and 1 tsp vanilla together
in a medium bowl
Add dry ingredients in jar
to the bowl and mix well.
Scoop onto non-stick
cookie sheet and
bake for 12-14 min.
