It’s the perfect time of year to stop and take a minute to count your many blessings. We gathered some friends together for a gratitude blog hop because we wanted to let our families know just how much we love and appreciate them. Check out my project for a simple Cake Batter Snickerdoodle Recipe + Gift and then visit my friends to see what they created with the “Gratitude” theme. There are recipes, printables and family traditions included in this blog hop that I think you will LOVE!
I wanted to share with you guys a simple recipe as well as show you how to turn it into an easy and cute gift idea too. Here is what I ended up making:
I thought it was a cute and simple gift idea perfect for those that you are thankful for. You can obviously fill it with any type of goodies you’d like but I filled mine with Cake Batter Snickerdoodles (a new recipe I just tried last week).
The whole thing was so easy to throw together. This is what you’ll need to do it too:
– Thankful print (available for download below)
– Scrapbook Paper
– Glue Dots
– Treat of some sort
1. Download the tag you’d like to use by clicking on the image above. Then RIGHT-CLICK and SAVE. Open it in a program like word, Re-size it to what you’d like it to be and then print and cut out. Attach it to your jar using glue dots.
2. Add some scrapbook paper to the top by cutting out a circle in the size of your lid. Attach with glue dots. Also tie some ribbon or twine around the top.
3. Fill your jar with goodies!
CUTE & SIMPLE!!
You can also use the other tags to turn it into an Easy Christmas Gift Idea by filling it with some yummy treats like Almond Hershey’s Kisses:
To make the Cake Batter Snickerdoodles, here’s what you’ll need:

A big, huge thank you to our families for their support and love. They are our guinea pigs, models, help us when we have last minute deadlines, don’t blink when we wear yoga pants for two days in a row and stick through the good, the bad and the ugly. We are so grateful for you.
Look at all these pretty faces! So much love in this collage:
