  • 1 canning jar
  • notecards (and colorful pens)

What you need to do:

  1. Add the ingredients to canning jar in the order listed above. I recommend using a funnel to minimize spillage (I made a funnel out of a sheet of paper and it worked just fine).
  2. Attach to the jar a card that reads:

Additional Ingredients:
