Baby Shower Favor

 We had the fun of celebrating new life at work with a shower and luncheon for Kim. The event provided me the perfect opportunity to spend time in my happy place (aka: craft room) to create some favors for the event. I used a Brenda Quintana tutorial. 

The favors were a huge hit! Did you guess that the baby is a boy? My biggest challenge was fitting in the Kisses. It was a tight fit, but none fell out, thank heavens. You won't be surprised to hear that the women took the favors back to their desks and the guys pulled the Kisses out of them for immediate consumption! It made me laugh 😄

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
