Chai Gift Cards


Today  last year I had an idea.   I dug out some card stock 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!

  10. Je s'aime le te, je s'aime le chai, et quelle type de Francais est ce que tous parle, exactement? Just kidding. Not even sure if I said that correctly. Your little gift packaging is so cute. I am very intrigued by the whole sewing cardstock thing. Love this project, Karen, thanks for the inspiration!!!
