Jar Gift question

mjowestJuly 30, 2013

I am in love with canning jars, and am planning on doing many more Jar Gifts-

I made one for playdough- recipe said to keep the koolaid in the envelope, but I dumped it into the top.

now there is a blank space between the ingredients and the canning jar top-

wondering what could I fill that space with?

tin foil
colored material that matched the color of the playdough
saran wrap

I can't quite picture what the gap is. The koolaid is dumped in but separate? Sorry, I've never made these and can't get my brain around it.

The jar will be decorated with fabric, ribbon, flowers. something!

Rip a piece of coordinating fabric and tie it in a knot or a bow just below the jar lid to disguise the gap and decorate the jar. Tie the instructions for mixing to the fabric.

Or cut a large circle of fabric and cover the whole lid and tie it with a piece of jute or sisal or cording. Leave an inch or 2 of excess fabric to make a "collar" and that will disguise the gap, too.

I'm worried about people picking them up, turning it on it's side, and things "shifting".

Then I think you'll need to increase your portions until the jar is full.

I decided to use some saran wrap- worked pretty good- I'm using the white tops for the canning jars, with a wide strip of fabric around the jar to match the color of the playdough.
Almost forgot the cream of tartar- wonder if it makes that much of a difference?
