Hello I Heart Naptime readers!! I’m Jenn and I blog over at Clean and Scentsible.  I am SO excited to be here as part of Jamielyn’s Hello Summer Event to help kick off the summer season with you!Summer is definitely my favorite season of the year but there are just so many activities to do with only a couple of months of precious vacation time!  Sometimes we can get so busy with our plans that it is hard to always find the time to connect with our friends and neighbors.  So here is a fun and easy gift idea, a lemonade gift tag and recipe, to let them know that you are still thinking of them…

Everyone loves a nice, cool glass of lemonade in the summer and your friends can think of you every time they make one up!  The back tag has a basic recipe for the lemonade as well as one to make a lemonade slushie. {one of my favorites!}

MATERIALS

  • mason jars
  • baker’s twine
  • lemonade mix
  • pre-sweetened cherry Kool-Aid mix
  • tags {download HERE}
  • cupcake liners
  • glue
  • hole punch
TO DO
  • Download and print out the tags.  For my printer, I had to unclick “fit picture to frame” to avoid the edges being cut off so you may need to play around with the borders on your printer if it is cutting it off.   If you are still having trouble you can downloadthis version {there is only one tag per page rather than two}Trim around the edges of the tags or punch out with a 3 inch circle punch.
  • Glue the two tags together and punch a hole through the top.
  • Mix lemonade and Kool-Aid together using a ratio of 1 1/4 cups lemonade to 3/4 cups Kool-Aid. {you can leave the Kool-Aid out if you would like and just use lemonade but the cherry flavor adds a fun twist!}. Add to mason jar.
  • Place the lid on the mason jar, place cupcake liner on top, and attach your tag with the baker’s twine.  You can add a couple of paper straws as well for an extra special touch!
  • Deliver to your friends and family or take to a BBQ as a little hostess gift.  It is sure to make someone smile! :)
