    Here's a pretty - and tasteful - idea for holiday gift-giving.
     

    What You'll Need
    • A favorite recipe and the dry ingredients for it
    • A picture of the finished treat
    • Glass Mason-style jars
    • Scissors and glue
    • Colored construction paper
    • Printed cotton fabric
    • Coordinating ribbon or raffia
     
     
     
     
    How to Make it
       Choose a recipe and take the picture 
    Select a recipe you like that can be made in two steps - mix the dry ingredients, then add basic wet ingredients. Gingerbread and chocolate chip cookies work well for this, as do many coffee cakes.Prepare the recipe you'll use and take an attractive picture of the finished baked goods.
        
      Make a print 
    Take your picture to a nearby KODAK Picture Kiosk and follow the on-screen directions to Select the size you want 3 1/2" x 5". Scan your original picture. You can use the Add Text function to label your picture with the recipe's name, like "Ginny's Gingerbread" or "Mary's Marvelous Chocolate Chip Cookies." Then Print your picture. You'll get four 3 1/2" x 5" pictures on each KODAK Picture Kiosk sheet. Be sure to print enough for your holiday gift needs.
       
      Assemble the ingredients 
    Sort as many clean Mason-style jars and lids as you'll need, plus the recipe's dry ingredients. One by one, measure the dry ingredients into the jars, making layers with colors and textures (i.e., flour, brown sugar, chopped nuts, chocolate chips). Fill any extra space at the top of the jars with tissue paper.
       
      Create the recipe cards 
    Trim your pictures of the finished treat and glue them to tags made of colored construction paper. On the back of the tag, include the last steps for your recipe. For example, "Mix dry ingredients with 2 eggs and 1 cup of milk. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Enjoy!"
       
      Decorate the jar 
    Cut out a 6" circle from the printed cotton fabric. Attach a coordinating colored ribbon or raffia to your photo tag. Tie the fabric to the top of the sealed jar and your gift is ready.
