Christmas Project #14

Friendship Tea
 Rachel Carlson
In the spirit of holiday entertaining...every year I make my friends "Friendship Tea".  This year I decided to put the tea in an extra special tin just for holiday giving.  Although it was VERY hard to cut my favorite Barcelona paper - Manresa but I took one for the team - pout.
The Friendship Tea is very easy to make and fun to give.  I have friends that actually look forward to my Friendship Tea every year...and wait till they see their tins this year!  IF I can actually bare to give them away...
Product used:
Barcelona paper - Manresa
Victoria paper - Jubilee
97% Complete sticker- Merry
Red bird brad- Chelsea Brads
Gaffer Tape - stitches

Friendship Tea - aka Russian Tea
1 cup Tang Beverage Mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Instant Tea powder
1/2 cup instant lemonade
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Combine ingredients and store in a tightly covered jar. To serve, combine two teaspoons of tea mix with one cup hot water, or for iced friendship tea, use one tablespoon per glass of ice water.

cheers to tea!
ps: Rachel's Friendship Tea was featured at Todays Mama...congrats Rachel!

Note to Self: Send Rachel more Manresa paper.

Hi Barbara Jean,
Unfortunately the Advent kits are sold out. But we are still doing tutorials for the tags.
Just for future reference the Etsy Button is on the blog It is an orange square that says Etsy in the left sidebar.
No worries, you are not the first to ask!
