For my baby shower my family put together "The Most talked about" baby shower favor.. Motherhood Chocolate Chip Cookies in A Jar

My daughter is 8 months old now, and they STILL talk about it!!

You Will Need:

Ribbon - thick and thin for decorating

Cloth- (about 4" squares) with coordinating colors to your party theme

Empty glass mason jars

The ingredients to your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (ie. sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and chocolate chips)

Directions:
Layer all the dry ingredients (by color) in the mason jar.

Place the center circle from the mason jar lid on top (not the outer ring yet!)

Place your cloth cut out on top and then seal it with the outer ring of the top.

Hot glue ribbons to the side of the top ring for decorations

Attach a tag that explains the cooking directions

**mine said: Preheat oven to 375° F. Beat 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) of butter or margarine, 1 large egg and 3/4 tsp. of vanilla extract in lg. mixing bowl until blended. Add cookie mix and 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional); mix well breaking up any clumps. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.
