A Chai Christmas Card


 I had a brilliant idea today so I dug out some cardstock from my stash.


I headed over to The Graphics Fairy and had a look at her labels.  Thanks again Graphics Fairy.

  I found one that of course had tea
 written all over it...
"Galon de Coton" means "Drink Tea and Enjoy!"
Don't read that Magali or Heathers' daughters.  
(I am pretty sure they don't speak
 the same French I do!)
I don't think anyone speaks the same French as me!

  I downloaded it, modified it to make it personal,  and printed four per page.  I tore the labels with a ruler into equal sizes as  I didn't want the edges to look cut. (Actually my scissors were nowhere to be found.) 


  I sewed each one  onto a piece of carcardstock


I grabbed another piece of cardstock, and sewed it onto the back, so that  I formed an envelope with a label on the front. 


Two holes were punched in the top.


 My homemade Chai was put into plastic bags from the dollar store and each card was tied with some ribbon.   To see my chai mix recipe, click H E R E !

Now I don't have to sit and hand write a whole lot of cards.




People who speak French know to drink tea and enjoy.....

Cheers!
