As I've said before, I am not a crafty person but I want to be crafty. I found this on The Motherload and instantly thought, "I can do that!" So, if you are looking for a thoughtful, homemade gift, here you go:
Oatmeal Cookies & Milk Bath
1 cup cornstarch
2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup otameal (not instant)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions: Mix all ingredients together in blender or food processor until it is a fine powder. Add 2 Tbsps of the mixture to your bath.
Here's what I started with:
I put everything in a food processor and then transferred them over to jars.
I had to go back and buy more powdered milk. The recipe above fills 1 full and about 1/3 of another jar. For 8 jars it was about $25.
Approximately $7.00 for 12 jars
$3.00 for 3 boxes of corn starch at Wal-Mart
Approximately $4.00 for the first box of powdered milk which only had 3 cups total of milk. Another $6.00 for another 8 cups
$3.00 for a container of oats
I already had the cinnamon
I found these ornaments at Wal-Mart for $1.00 each. The ribbon was 2 rolls of 25 feet for $5.
I printed printed off the labels from Microsoft Office.
