This has everything the bakers (or wannabe bakers) in your life need—in one cute tin basket! The DIY Mommy explains how to create this adorable gift basket that’s perfect for neighbors, coworkers and friends who love bringing homemade sugar cookies to Christmas bashes.
Follow these six simple steps to replicate this Christmas Baking Kit in a tin:
1. Find A Tin
You will need a large tin basket. A tin similar to the one DIY Mommy shows can be purchased on Amazon.
2. Add Decor
Find Christmas-themed scrapbook paper. This will be used as a decorative wrapper around the tin. Find scrapbook paper at craft stores or add to your purchase on Amazon.
3. Pack Those Ingredients
Fill a mason jar with the ingredients you need for homemade sugar cookies, including flour, baking powder, baking soda, white sugar and salt. Use your own favorite recipe or follow a recipe recommended by AllRecipes.com. Your recipients will likely have staples like eggs and butter at home, but you could add non-perishable ingredients like vanilla extract to the basket if you wish.
4. Print Your Labels
The DIY Mommy posted a link to free printable labels and tags you’ll need for your Christmas Baking Kit. The chalkboard-style labels look so cute with the tin baskets.
5. Twine It Up
Use twine to attach the sugar cookie recipe to the mason jar in the basket. Other labels and tags can be tied or glued.
6. Personalize It
Lastly, make your gifts your own by adding other baking essentials like cookie cutters, a jar of sprinkles, wooden spoons or an apron. Everyone loves new oven mitts, right?
