From Kathleen..."This is a great project if you've got some time and want to give your guests something homemade. It takes about 2 months for the Vanilla to mature but it's a simple project and a gift that will last for years!"

Materials Needed

Small Glass Jars

#4 Size Corks

Mini Gingham Ribbon

Sticker Paper

Scissors

X-acto Knife

Homemade Vanilla



Instructions

Step 1: Download the Homemade Vanilla Extract recipe here and follow the directions on how to make it.



Step 2: Download Vanilla Labels here and print onto white sticker paper. Trim out each label. To get nice circles, take your time and use an x-acto knife and self-healing cutting mat - your fingers and table with thank you!



Step 3: Cut ribbon to 8" long and wrap around the neck of the bottle crossing in the center. Secure ribbon with a small piece of tape and then apply Vanilla label to the center of the bottle. Finish it off by snipping the ends of ribbon to a point.



Step 4: Once Vanilla is prepared and ready, fill the jars with vanilla using a funnel and cap with a cork. Vilolá! a delightful homemade favor for your guests!
