We are knee-deep in summer; from picnics to BBQs, you are probably finding yourself as a busy guest. Dawn loves to bring a little thank you to the host/hostess and a Lemon Margarita Gift Box is the perfect summer package!

She made a fun tag using the our large yellow tag with a cute stamp set and a real paper straw. Packaging up rimming salt, tequila and a lime in a fun basket with the finishing touch, a striped Bigger Bag with a glassine bag inside filled with tortilla chips…you can’t enjoy a margarita without chips and salsa!

Janae P. created an extra special envelope. She used a the purple pattern middy bags and purple/lavender divine twine.  Other supplies used were tissue paper, glue stick, a mailing label and a card.

DSC_0160edit

She started by cutting the tissue paper in a rectangle and then cutting the ends as shown, then glued it down in the return address area.

DSC_0171

She put the card in, folded over the open end of the middy bag about a 1/2″ and glued it closed.

DSC_0169

wrap divine twine around the card lengthwise a few times and knot, adding extra closure to the envelope.

Lastly, glue on your address label and add the details!

DSC_0213

This letter is non-machinable with the post office and does require an extra 21 cents of postage.  Janae usually take these directly to the post office to mail, but they are so fun to get on the other end!
