There is something nice about receiving a gift that someone has lovingly made for you, and it's also great fun to create gifts for those you love. Well I think so.
This year I made some gifts from the kitchen, and I got a bit excited and forgot to take some photos of the process. There were cranberry and white chocolate shortbreads (yum), fruit cake mini puddings, and white chocolate coconut truffles. Sometimes its hard to give things away, hehe. Here is a pic of the mini pudding truffles. Poor pic, but you can imagine how yummy they are!
Step 1 - get all your ingredients together.
You will need:
- Muslin cloth
- Organic oats (I used quick oats for these)
- Lavender petals
- Chamomile flowers
- Rose petals
- Pretty paper and pens for the gift tags
- Some clear plastic bags to put the finished product in, or cellophane would work too.
Step 3 - Using a dessert spoon, place 3 heaped spoonfuls of the oats into the centre of your muslin cloth.
Step 5 - place 1 heaped dessert spoon of chamomile flowers on top of the lavender.
Step 6 - place 1 flatish dessert spoon of rose petals on top of the chamomile.
Step 7 - grab each corner of the muslin cloth and bring them all together so that you can tie some string around the top and hold all the ingredients together in a bundle. I made sure that the string was very secure, tieing it around the bundle three times. This is your bath bomb that will go into the water so you want it to be secure.
I tied the gift tag on the outside so that the receiver can read what it is and see the ingredients.
Walah, all done and ready to go :) I declare that a wrap!
