My dear best friend and bridesmaid Jaime came to visit New York this past weekend, and while I wanted to just hang out with her and eat cupcakes, she reminded me that we had a project to do. We decided to make the bags that will hold hot chocolate and apple cider for the guests. These will go in the guests’ out of town bags. I still haven’t decided what the actual OOT bags will be—they might be apple baskets or gable boxes!
I decided to buy muslin bags because I love the natural look and the cost. I only paid around 25 cents for each bag, and got them from this website.
I had already had the tree stamp made from the image we designed for our invitations.
I decided I needed a stamp that said “enjoy”, and it took searching around 15 websites to find one… but I did. I bought the “enjoy” stamp for around $10 with shipping. I found it at 1-2-3 Stitch.
Once I got the bags (they were 4″x6″) I ironed them… they got a little wrinkled in the mail.
I found the hot chocolate online and went with a more expensive kind because I liked the packages. I know that is not good, but I decided to splurge a tiny bit. I decided to get Bellagio hot chocolate from the English Tea Store.
