It is raining outside here so that means I am in the house. I have wanted to get up the little gift idea I had for you last Friday, but you who follow know we had computer problems and lots of little babies hatching. Soooooo I thought for fun we would have a little party giveaway! Starting today and ending on, Monday May 24th! I can't send the jam overseas, but I can send the little scone bag and mix. Sorry!
I have a little tutorial so you can make The Coffeehouse Scones (recipe at the bottom of blog) for yourself. You can print out the recipe and make a tag. It is fun to always take a little gift, if you have been invited somewhere.
Sift dry ingredients using a sifter.
Sift onto waxed paper.
Put dry ingredients into a cellophane bag and tie with twine. This will slip perfectly into your little bag. If you give this as a gift, you will need to tell them that they will have to add 1/2 cup butter, 2/3 cup buttermilk. The recipe is at the bottom of post.
Cut a piece of fabric 15" wide x 11" tall.
Make a double seam at the top of fabric and sew across the full 15".
Fold fabric from side to side. Sew sides and bottom.
Box the corners of both sides of bag. Draw a 1" line from point. Sew across corners.
Using pinking shears cut off excess. Turn the bag inside out. Place mixture inside and tie with a ribbon.
Cut a 7 1/2" circle of coordinating fabric for the cap of the jam, pink the edges. Place over
jam and tie in place with a ribbon.
