My crafty side is limited so for this creative exchange I stuck to my strength - sweet treats.
One thing I learned about my Creative Exchange Buddy: She loves Brownies! And who doesn't?
So I used this Recipe & 2-Cup Ball Mason Jars to divide the recipe into the three main brownie components:
Sugar, Flour & Chocolate!
Paint Chip Me.
I used some colorful paint chips as tags for each of the jars and to write out the special instructions. Since this was being shipped I left out a few key perishable or liquid ingredients:
Butter, Eggs & Vanilla
Another tidbit I learned is that my new buddy is a new mom! So I put together a little alphabet card set with a few customized letters with her new little one's initials.
My printer did not agree with this plan.
I used one set to make a card, with some instructions & to hold the recipe cards.
Please oh please, don't melt me yet!
One final plee to the gods of chocolate and the Texas Summer heat as I get ready to pack & ship.
A little bubble wrap, just a little.
The finishing touches...
Open this side up!
The Lovely Hosts.
