When Life Gives You Lemons - Crystal Light Treat Pouch

 I work for a wellness company and recently made a trip to our health center in Kissimmee, Florida. I am a HR professional and the center has been experiencing some staffing challenges and I wanted to meet with the team personally.

I am so impressed by the team of professionals in this center. They work as a team, supporting each other via work assistance, laughter and encouragement. They are awesome!

When I arrived home I knew I wanted to send a treat from me. This is what they received.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade; this team is certainly doing that!

This is a perfect little treat to share with friends, coworkers, your postal carrier. 


Start with a piece of cardstock cut at 2" x 8.5". I used So Saffron.

Score at 3.5" and 3.75", burnish the score lines

Trim with Fancy Tag Topper Punch (#152711)

Add 2" of Tear and Tape (#154031) to the straight edge 

Use a small die or punch to create an opening for the drink pouch

Keeping the bottom squared so it is flat to a surface, fold up the strip and attach

Cut a .5" x 2" strip of Basic White and adhere to cover the So Saffron edge

Place your drink pouch inside the opening and wrap with ribbon. I tied off my ribbon with a bit of baker's twine


To make multiples:

Score a full sheet of cardstock on the 8.5 side at 3.5" x 3.75"

With the 11" side of cardstock at the top of your Paper Trimmer (152392), cut 2" strips

Proceed with directions above


  1. Oh I love it , I can’t figure where to put the tear tape , 🥲

    1. Frenchie, add the Tear n Tape to the unpunched end of the 2" x 8.5" piece of cardstock.
