A customer came to me and asked for some Baby Shower game prizes. I really thought about it, and wanted to do something cute, but significant. Shower prizes are tough sometimes. I came up with these homemade Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix Jars. Raspberry, just cause they needed a little pink! I went searching online and found a recipe that seemed easy enough. I'm not a baker, but certainly I can put some ingredients in a jar, right? As a matter of fact, the last time I tried to make chocolate chip cookies, they looked like saggy old man butts!

The shower was a colorful polka dot theme, and I found this adorable fabric for the top the jars. Then, I printed tags that read: "Sugar and Spice and everything nice" - cause, you know - that's what little girls are made of! Inside the tags, I printed the recipe on how to make the cookies.
