In each of the four IKEA KORKEN clear glass jars with lid, layer 2/3 cup of pinto beans, shaking the jar gently to level the beans. Repeat with 2/3 cup of green peas and so on ending with the kidney beans. Set jars aside.
In a small bowl, combine all spices except bay leaves and bouillon cubes. In a small ziploc baggie, spoon 3 tablespoons of the spice mixture. Place two bay leaves and one bouillon cube on top. Repeat three more times to create four total baggies. Place the packets into the top space of each of the four bean jars. Place lids on jars and wrap with a ribbon and label as desired.
