The other day I shared these super fun and festive DIY Christmas Tea Towels, I thought it would be fun to show you one more quick and easy Christmas gift that costs less than $10 to create. This Cookies for Santa Jar Gift would be the perfect gift for any friend or neighbor this holiday season. You can even pair it with the DIY Christmas Tea Towels.
This was the first time I’ve tried the new Print & Cut feature with my Cricut Explore machine, if you want to learn more about it you can go HERE. I loved using this new feature, there are so many great projects you can make with it. Not only does Cricut have a new Printable Sticker Paper, they also have Printable Vinyl…how awesome is that?!
– Cricut Explore cutting machine
– Cricut cutting mat – if you have a light grip mat use it for this project, otherwise the regular mat will also work
– Cricut printable sticker paper
– Quart size canning jar with smooth surface, I found mine at Hobby Lobby
– Cookie ingredients found in the recipe below
To download the free images below just right-click and “save as” to your computer.
Open the images in Cricut Design Space by selecting the “Upload Image” option, then create the cuttable image. Size the front and back labels to 3″ in diameter, for the lid topper size it to 2.73″ in diameter to fit inside the jar lid.
Place the printed sticker paper images on your cutting mat, being sure to align the left corners with the mat grid. LOAD the mat, and hit GO. Continue to follow prompts on Cricut Design Space until all three stickers are cut.
Don’t worry if you don’t own a Cricut Explore yet you can just download these images by right clicking each image and “save as” to your computer, then open in a program like Word, Publisher, or Photoshop and size to the same sizes listed in the previous step. Print on matte photo paper or white cardstock and cut by hand. Then use a tape runner to secure the labels to your jar.

3/4 cup brown sugar
