{bean soup} in a jar

I like this bean soup {in a jar} idea because it’s not a dessert!
Sometimes you get & give soooooooooooooooo much sweet stuff
during the holidays, so this is a great alternative to try!
I got this idea from our church craft night, too! :)

You’ll need:
1 quart size jar
one package of bean soup mix
fabric, ribbon & recipe card

It’s super easy!  Just dump your beans into your jar.
If your beans come with a flavoring packet just set that on top.
Put on a lid & fun Christmas fabric.
