A couple of crafty gifts...

I have the school nurse's end of year party tomorrow... the instructions said to bring a $5-10 gift for an exchange. The suggestions were "sunscreen, a beach towel or something like that for summer"...Now, if you know me, you know I can't show up with a bottle of sun screen to swap(that however, is prob. what I'll end up cause that's the way my life works). I like to have the cutest gift for the swap...
I shared my idea with Jennifer, she added to it and we made a couple of very cute gifts. We started with a very cute Margarita recipe book. I included recipes for several types of margaritas, margarita marinades, salads, chicken, etc.
Jennifer suggested using envelopes to make an accordion book for it. So easy and so cute!


We added a pitcher and glasses from Walmart, salt, a jar of our margarita jam/sauce and I think I'll have the cutest gift. I also made one for a teacher for the end of the year...
I also decided to do a little project to go with a graduation gift...
