I love these!!!!


I want to make these for thank yous for my coworkers.


How do I get them? Do I post 150 comments somewhere in the site?


I love how you tied them instead of using staples.

I'm really happy with how they turned out. I'm posting a picture of the samples I made. I haven't found mints I want to use yet (and it's also really early to buy them), so I used crunchy M&M's for now (yum!). I'm always welcome to feedback...good or bad (or should I say positive or constructive...haha).

I used regular cardstock & I was able to fit 3 to a page. I used a 1/8" round hole puncher and I've included the punch marks on the template. I cut raffia (roughly 12 inches) and threaded it through to make a bow. I trimmed the excess afterwards. I used the ZOTS (I think that's what they're called) to stick the mint bags to the matchbooks and they work great! I bought 2" x 1 1/2" recloseable bags from Michaels and they fit perfectly inside. I put in a fold mark for the top fold (with raffia) on the template. Make sure you don't make a sharp fold for the bottom as you want it to be rounded. I did pinch the corners a little to keep the shape. Feel free to message me if you have any questions, and I hope this is helpful!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
