Here's the recipe:
Spiced Tea Mix
1 jar (19 oz) Tang
1 package (3 oz) lemonade mix
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup instant tea
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Use 2-3 heaping teaspoons per cup of hot water. Yummo!
And here's my cute little gift idea. The supplies you'll need are shown below and include:
Lockhart Teabag Stamp, Papertrey Holiday Treats sentiment, Palette brown ink pad, Martha Stewart brown twill tape, brown brads from Star Lit Studio(Cindy has THE BEST brads), Copic Markers, oval Spellbinder's Die Templates, small glassine sacks from Papertrey, small ziplock jewelry bags from the hobby store, piercing tool and mat, sharp scissors, Cosmo Cricket patterned paper.
This little gift idea is a ziplock bag full of 3 heaping teaspoons full (1 serving) of the Spice Tea Mix that is tucked inside the small glassine sack. A cute oval tag is attached with twill ribbon and a brad. Stamp and color the teabag image, simulating the Spice Tea Mix in the teabag by blotching on the Copic markers colors. Now I know that the tea mix isn't really in a tea bag but.......work with me peeps, it's all I have for tea stamps! Then stamp the sentiment and brackets. Cut and emboss oval with a Spellbinder's Die Template. Mount on Cosmo Cricket Spellbinder's scallop oval. Cut about a 3" piece of twill tape and notch both ends with sharp scissors. Layer all the pieces together and pierce with piercing tool and mat. By using the piercing tool instead of a 1/16" punch, you'll avoid scrunching up the twill tape. Insert the brad and you're done.
Here's the finished product......single serving sizes of Spiced Tea Mix. Perfect for those little gifts where you want to give just a little something but you don't want to spend a lot of money. I think I'll leave a little packet on teacher's desks at school when I sub. And I might tuck some into my snowman ensemble that sits in a 2 tiered wire basket. Guests can take a little gift when they enter our home.
Or I could hang some on the Christmas tree for guests to take as a little gift. Enjoy everyone!
