Winter Floral Printable Tags for Beautiful Homemade Gifts

I designed some new Winter Floral Printable Tags for my Living Locurto Fun Club members and excited to share an example of how I will be using them myself! Every Christmas, my Mom would fill holiday tins with her famous Chex Mix for gifts and there was always a big glass jar filled with it in our home during the Christmas season. I was inspired by the memory of my mom’s glass jar filled with Chex Mix, to package a delicious treat in vintage glass containers and mason jars!

If you need a quick and easy homemade gift idea, be sure to check out my amazing Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix recipe and print these winter floral printable tags to make your own homemade gifts for the holidays.

How to Make Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix

Of course, you’ll need Chex Cereal! I’m so addicted to Wheat Chex that I always have some in the house.

How to Use Bacon Safely in Chex Mix

I used bacon seasoning in place of fresh bacon. Since bacon needs to be refrigerated, I didn’t want to chance my Chex Party Mix getting soggy in the refrigerator.

If you want to use fresh bacon in your recipe, be sure to eat the Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix within two hours after cooking the bacon.

Omit fresh bacon if giving as a gift or serving at parties where it will be out for hours. Any bacon flavored seasoning will work. I found some bacon and chives seasoning at my grocery store and it turned out fabulous!

Time to make Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix!

Chex Party Mix is so easy and only takes a few steps! First mix cereals, nuts, pretzels and bagel chips together in a large bowl. Next, in a smaller glass bowl, microwave butter for about 40 seconds or until melted. Stir in seasonings and brown sugar. Pour over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated.

 

How to make Bacon Chex Mix

I like to spread my Chex Party Mix out on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 35-45 minutes. You can also heat it quickly in the microwave. Print the recipe below for detailed directions.

I hope you enjoy this amazingly simple body scrub recipe. Because I love it so much, I designed some pretty gift tags to use for gifts. Scroll down to print the beautiful floral free printable tags.

Watch the video below to see how easy this vanilla brown sugar body scrub is to make!

Recipe for Vanilla + Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Body Scrub Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar (or 1 full cup of brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup coconut or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

I used both brown sugar and regular table sugar for this recipe because that is what I had at home but I think using all brown sugar would be wonderful.

Homemade Vanilla and Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe

Add the sugar, the oil and the vanilla to the bowl and mix together with a spoon. Immediately your senses will fill with the scents of brown sugar and vanilla. You’ll have to fight the urge to lick the spoon!

Once the mixture is combined place it in a jar or container for storage. We store ours in glass jars in the bathroom and even though the kids use the scrub we haven’t had an issue with the jars breaking, but use your judgement. There are many pretty plastic jars out there that will work too.

Use the brown sugar scrub on your hands, feet and body for a mini-spa experience right in your own bathroom!
