It’s hard to believe only 18 days left…

That’s right!

Christmas is just around the corner or more accurately there are only 18 days left. As everyone is making plans to go shopping in the days left until Christmas I was surfing the web for ideas on how the woodworker could use their talents to create special hand crafted gifts for the people that are special in their family.

A Neat Idea…

This post is about a neat idea that my Mom gave to us last Christmas as a stocking stuffer. The present was Gift in a Jar, which was the ingredients to my favorite brownie recipe. To add to this she wrapped the Jar with Christmas paper, to top it off with few ribbons and a Christmas card.

It’s all about the Packaging…

So the reason for this post is to talk about how to package the Gift in a Jar using our new dynamic box calculators instead of wrapping paper and ribbons. But before we get to the custom made Painted Boxes let’s explore what we can use as the gift in a Jar.

As a great starter,

I have purchased a few Gift in a Jar recipes. I have converted the recipes into a series of PDF recipes that I am offering to you as a gift from Router Workshop. In each of these Gift in a Jar recipes we have custom made labels used to create a professional look and feel to each of your creations in a Jar.

Now here is the How To information video on how to create and print the Gift in a Jar custom labels.


Free Label Software…

I used the Avery Label software to print the labels out to your color laser or inkjet printers. Click here to receive your free copy of the Avery Label software.

Here are the recipe gifts from the Router Workshop.

1) A all time favorite here at home is the homemade version of a quick breakfast meal, Click to get your copy of the Apple, Cinnamon and Walnut Oatmeal.

2) As our second choice we have added nuts and apples to a homemade pancake mix. Click here to get your copy of theĀ  Apple Nut Pancakes.

3) Now this one is for everyone that drinks coffee with a creamer, it is the Amaretto Coffee Creamer.

4) And the last one is the Apple Cake in a Jar so click here to get recipe number four.

Please Note: That all of the above recipes that use Apples can use different fruits to create a different taste. I am not sure how well bananas would work but I am sure apricots, peaches, and blueberries would work just fine.

To finish this post I have included the link to our Dynamic Box Calculators. This resource is here to help you create those custom gift boxes for your friends and family.

Merry Christmas to all,

    Great idea, the label for the apple cinnamon oatmeal is missing the “a” though. Sorry, I was a proofreader in a past life.
