I had previously posted a recipe for Instant Cappuccino Mix www.thethriftyhousewifeblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/instant-cappuccino-mix-recipe-gift-idea.html . I made it into a cute gift by putting the cappuccino mix into a mason jar and giving it a decorative Christmas touch. I placed a square of fabric over the lid and screwed the band around it. For the fabric, I cut it out using pinking shears to prevent fraying and to make it look pretty. Then I tied a matching red ribbon around the band. Voila! Pretty, decorative, useful gift!
