Looking for Christmas gift ideas. Do you have any?
1 Tbs. or packet of unflavored knox gelatin
1 cup water (divided in half)
1/8 tsp. rubbing alcohol
1/4 tsp. essence oil or fragrance oil
drop or two of food coloring
3 #2 size baby food jars or 1 jelly jar
Boil half cup of water, put in gelatin mix, mix and add half cup water, stir.
Add remaining ingredients, pour into jars and set in frig. to set up.
Add a scrap of netting to top of jar, tie with small ribbon. Paint lid any color and put on jar for gift giving.
I estimate cost of this project at around .25 cents per jar. I used fruit slice scent, it smells absolutely yummy.
Supporting American Workers
One year for Christmas I involved my children by purchasing paper doilies and putting their handprint on them (one on each side). Then I tied a pretty ribbon (in the already slotted doilie) and it made a very inexpensive and cute gift. I passed these out to people at my work from my children. They thought that they were so cute!
