Pour in the M&M’s. {I layered by color}
Add the Mini Marshmallows.
Put the silver jar topper on top, place a round scrap of scrapbook paper {or brown paper bag cut into a circle} on top, then screw on the jar’s lid. {or you could use a doilie like I did here}
Wrap ribbon or twine around the silver lid.
Optional: Use your Silhouette or Letter Stickers to add the words ‘Cookie Mix’.
