These tasty cherry oatmeal scones can be made into jar mixes and given as homemade gifts!

It seems like there are so many friends/teachers/hostesses to bring gifts to around the holidays. I love to give and receive gifts that are homemade. This year I did something really simple, delicious, and much less sinful than fudge or cookies. The dry ingredients for my favorite oat scone recipe conveniently fit perfectly into a quart sized jar.  You know how I love my mason jars – remember these jute wrapped jars?  Or these s’mores in jars? Or these mini pies in jars? You get the idea.
 You could also include a little jar of jam or lemon curd with your jar of scone mix. What a cute breakfast basket you could make!
Jars are turned into darling packaging by sticking these labels on and wrapping the tops with a piece of ribbon. I printed labels on card stock and used a glue gun to stick them on the jars. Shimmering stickers on the top from Martha Stewart Crafts.
