Hey there, Reverse Confetti fans! It’s the 8th of the month and time for another sizzling Blog Hop from the Confetti Crew and a few other friends. Summer is quickly approaching, so this is a good excuse to stay inside out of the heat and recharge your batteries with us! We’ll give you a minute to grab a glass of lemonade as we hop along together and share some crafty goodness with you!
My daughter and I have been putting together year-end lemonade gifts for the bus drivers, school administrators, office staff, teachers, etc. I found cute pitcher gifts HERE and HERE, but wanted something smaller and more affordable (I need about twenty total), so I decided to do a single-size version. I put two packets of sugar and two lemons in a pint-size mason jar, switched the lid for one that has a daisy cut-out (I ordered these a while back from Pick Your Plum, but Amazon sells similar ones), and added a cute paper straw embellished with a flag and tag combo. The Kraft flag is stamped in Kraft ink with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS. The something yummy sentiment label is done with stamps from LABEL ME and die-cut with the matching LABEL ME CONFETTI CUTS die. The tag is stamped with a heart from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS. The "to" and "from" are from LABEL ME, and the tag is die-cut with the smaller tag die in the TAG ME CONFETTI CUTS die set. For the recipe, I die-cut the computer-generated text with the larger tag in the TAG ME CONFETTI CUTS set, and slipped it down inside the jar with the lemons and sugar.
Stir together sugar and 1/4 cup hot
water until sugar is dissolved
Stir in 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
and 3/4 cup cold water
Fill to the top with ice and enjoy!
