Do you have an award winning pie or cake recipe that can be converted into a layered gift mix? Consider layering the dry ingredients into a quart sized jar and presenting this holiday season to teachers, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
Prize ribbons are all the rage. I stamped a country motif and used folded satin ribbon to create my own prize fair badge. An aged, stamped tag completes the look but consider painting the lid and adding a wood knob as well. I usually paint my lids with acrylic paint but also coat them with a couple of coats of clear varnish to keep the paint intact. The apple pie mix shown here can be found by clicking here.
Don't forget the crust. This recipe can be found here. I used a large tomato sauce can and covered it with patterned paper. The pie crust dry mix was placed in a clear bag and tied with a ribbon. Don't forget to add instructions that tells your recipient how to complete the goodies, including eggs, milk, etc.
