Instructions:

1. Paint a thin strip of white around the bottom of the jar.
2. Apply Epoxy Trees.
3. Add snowflakes (Lisa simply used a small paint brush and brushed Elmer's glue over the white paint and then sprinkled snowflakes onto the glue.)
4. Fill jar with hot cocoa mix almost to the top and add mini marshmallows.
5. Tie ribbon around the top and add button and tag.

Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe

1/3 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 Cup cocoa
2 1/2 Cup Powdered Milk

Combine and blend ingredients in a small bowl. Store in airtight container. Put a tag on the jar with directions how to make: "Mix 3 Tablespoons of the hot chocolate mix with 1 cup of warm milk and stir until smooth."

Spa Sea Salt Scrub Recipe (www.recipezaar.com)

2 Cups Sea Salt
1 1/3 Cups Aloe Vera Baby Oil or Soya Oil
8 Vitamin E Capsules
2 Tablespoons Honey

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well; spoon in jar.
2. Add a bit to your hand or a bath mitt and rub all over.
3. Rinse off well.

Tip from Anabelle: I halved the recipe and still had a bit left over. Also, I added some Castile soap to make it into a foaming scrub. You can cut down on the baby oil if you do this. To make your own scent, use the soybean oil and add a few drops of essential oils. Play around with it to find the consistency you like. Tie a bath 'pouf' to the top of the jar and place in the gift bag.
