Tips for Assembling Homemade Baking Mix in a Jar

  • Use a funnel to get all ingredients into jar (If you don’t have a funnel, use a rolled up paper plate).
  • Spoon the cinnamon inside the jar, pressing it up against the sides of the glass. This will allow you to see a distinct cinnamon layer. 
  • Use your lid as a reference when cutting the fabric (Shown in the picture below).
  • You can place a piece of folded tape on the lid and stick the cut out fabric on so it doesn’t slide around when you’re tying the bow on.
  • After securing the ribbon, trim off excess fabric that is covering too much of the jar (Shown in picture below).
