Here is another mason jar holiday gift idea, great for neighbors, teachers, or friends and family. This cinnamon sugar popcorn recipe is amazing! I have shared the full recipe before here. I made up some of these jars for another holiday boutique and thought I would share the idea with all of you. They are really simple to make, here's what you'll need:
- 8oz Mason jars
- White popcorn kernels
- Glittery card stock paper
- small plastic bags to hold the cinnamon sugar mixture (you can find small ones at Hobby Lobby)
- hole punch
- paper cutter or scissors
- printed label and directions (you can save my image below and insert into word doc)
You will place 1/2 cup of sugar into the bottom of each jar, then follow with 1/2 cup of the white popcorn kernels. Place the lid on the jar and tighten. Measure out the cinnamon sugar mixture for each bag. You will need 4 tablespoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix it together and place in the small bag. Each jar makes about 7-8 cups of popcorn.
Next you can print the cinnamon sugar popcorn labels and write the directions on the back card stock. You can find the image that I used below. Just save and insert into a word document to print. You can drag the image smaller or larger depending on the size of the label you want to make. Then cut out the label and glue to the glittery card stock. Hole punch the corner of each label.
Next, hole punch two holes on each side of the top of the small bags and thread the twine through the holes and around the lid of the jar. You will also want to make sure to thread the twine through your label. Then you're done! Make sure to make a batch for yourself too, it will make a good snack for while you're filling the jars. :)
