“Good-Dog” Treats

Just for fun, I’ve added this recipe, which makes a unique gift for dog owners. My dog, Belle, will “sit” for these treats every time!

NotesDecorating the Jar:

To add the finishing touches to your jarred mix, simply center the chosen fabric square on the lid of the jar and secure it with a rubber band. Then wrap your chosen tie around the rubber band twice, covering the band, and knot the tie to hold it in place.

Using a hole punch, make a hole in the tag and slide the tie through the hole, threading it through once or twice and tying it off with a bow. If you’ve chosen to photocopy the boxed tag provided with each recipe, you may want to fold the left side of the tag over the right before punching a hole in the top left-hand comer. This will allow you to thread the tie through two layers of paper, attaching your tag securely to the jar.

Finally, to make your Mason gift jar even more special, you may want to use the same ribbon or twine to attach an item that can be used when preparing the particular recipe. Wooden spoons, wire whisks, and cookie cutters are possible choices. Your beautiful Mason jar mix is now done, ready for its lucky recipient!
