I purchased the jar below at Wal-Mart and filled it with the dry ingredients of a favorite gingerbread type recipe that I love to make around this time of year. (Mr. Food's Nice Spice Cookies). On the "baking with love" card I typed up the other (wet) ingredients needed to complete the recipe as well as the recipe itself. A little stitching here and there and the addition of that adorable cork gingerbread man over the printed image on the card/tag adds a little extra special touch! The chevron green circle (top of jar) was a scrap left over from the snowman card I posted here on the Chic Tags' blog (Day#1). Also, I raised the adorable little gingerbread girl with some foam adhesive for added dimension to the top of the lid decor. The baker's twine was stitched through the openings in the doily with a large eye needle and tied off into a bow.
