Mason Jar Ideas

Dry mixes in jars are classic. Besides being a great way to store mixes they also make very fun gifts. I’ve found the best approach to this is to line your jars up on the counter and get all of your dry ingredients out. Measure out one ingredient at a time and place that amount in each jar. Continue to layer until you are done.
Here are some good recipes to start with.
My husband came up with this idea and i think i am rubbing off on him lol he had some other great ideas to this but i am gonna surprise ya all and tell you when i got it done!
