I followed Julie the Crafty Quilter's tutorial to make this "Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher".  I also made another mix in a jar, for making banana bread.

 Here's a link to Julie's tutorial:
The jarred mixes are very handy and easy and quick to make a treat to enjoy or give away!
Here are some labels you can copy and use for your own treats if you'd like to.

Banana Bread label

Add these ingredients into the jar for making banana bread:
1.  1 cup flour mixed with 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
2.  1/2 cup sugar
3. 1/2 cup nuts.  (Note:  the jar will not be completely full)
Place a piece of waxed paper over the opening and then the jar lid.  Place a 5 inch square of fabric and tie it on with raffia. Use a glue stick to apply the label.  Makes a small loaf.
A couple of things:  I put 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar in the jar I have displayed to make it prettier.  Also, if you didn't put the nuts in the jar, you would have room to double the recipe, which would make it a full loaf-- if you do this, don't forget to change the "Directions" to double the ingredients to be added.
Next project: a candle holder and candle mat.

I love how your crumb catcher turned out! The banana bread in a jar is such a great idea too. I'm going to try it soon.
