Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar Recipe Card

Christmas is coming and I’ve already started baking (and eating) Christmas cookies.  If we’re lucky, there will be a few cookies that escape my mouth and end up in gift boxes for friends and family.

If I get too hungry, maybe I can just hand out some recipe cards?

Oatmeal Cookies in a Jar Recipe Card

I made these oatmeal raisin cookies in a jar last year for friends and family.  I loved having a ready-made gift to hand out- plus, who doesn’t like food?  This year, I’ll be making my favorite Christmas cookies to share- snowballs, Chocolate mint creams, and more.  Stay tuned for those recipes!

Create a festive tag for your cookies in a jar by making a recipe card and attaching it with ribbon or raffia!  I created this recipe card using PicMonkey– it took me all of maybe 10 minutes to make, but you could spend hours going through the endless customizations available- font, colors, layout, collage style, overlays, graphics, etc.

5 Tips for Creating Recipe Cards in PicMonkey:

  1. Edit the pictures of your recipes first.
  2. Choose recipes that are on the shorter side.
  3. Triple check your ingredient list and directions.
  4. Think about layout- horizontal vs. vertical.
  5. Enhance the recipe card with appropriate visuals.  Don’t add graphics just for the sake of it.

Are you doing any homemade Christmas gifts this year?  What kinds?

    What a great gift idea, thanks for sharing Sarah:) I love homemade gifts too – I am planning on making fudge and some festive caramel corn for some friends and family and finish crocheting some hats for my nieces.

    What a great idea, Sarah! I’ve started “spiffing” things up with PicMonkey more lately, but never would have thought of this! Pinning!

    Thanks for sharing today on the Daily Blog Boost!

      It had never occurred to me either until PicMonkey approached me about being a part of their Holiday eCookbook!
