One thing that you might be doing this holiday season is going to one or two holiday parties. If this is the case, then you may be thinking about bringing the hostess a small gift when you come to visit. The only problem is 1) finding the gift and 2) putting it together in a budget friendly way (since you are already buying gifts for the Christmas season).
To solve this little problem, I came up with a fun Brownie in a Mug + Recipe Magnet Hostess Gift.
Specifically, today's project is part of my collaboration with Xyron since I'm a member of their design team! This means that you will be seeing a Xyron machine in action! For this particular project, I will be showcasing the Xyron® 9'' Creative Station, the Xyron® 3” Sticker Maker, and be using the Laminate/Magnet cartridge.
Now, I have never used the laminate/magnet cartridge from Xyron before, which is why I wanted to try it out for this project. Basically, the laminate/magnet cartridge works like the regular Xyron cartridge but instead of being turned into a sticker, your item (in this case a recipe card) gets turned into a magnet which is also laminated!
For the project itself, I decided to go with a ''mug recipe'' but you could turn this into cookies, bread, or anything that you want. The whole point is to give someone the ingredients / tools needed to make the recipe along with a magnetic recipe card. In this case, I used an illustration of a mug and uploaded it into a Word document to create my recipe card. However, you could use any form of recipe card that you like.

Finally, you can add a small embellishment to finish off the top of your jar.
When your recipe card has been made and your jar has been decorated, you're ready to put together your hostess gift!
I loved how this brownie in a mug + recipe magnet turned out! It would make a great gift for someone, even if you weren't going to a party.
For my gift, I included a mug, the dry ingredients for the recipe, a small whisk, a spoon, candy canes, and the magnetic recipe card. However, like I mentioned before, you could easy use this project as inspiration when making your own ''food type hostess gift''.
As always, to follow along with all the Xyron fun, don't forget to like them on Facebook and to follow their Pinterest page for more project inspiration.
