Gift Mixes 
 
 
Wrapping ideas:
**Place mixes in a plastic ziploc bag.  To make a fabric bag, using measurements from the ziploc bag containing the mix, cut fabric 1/2 inch wider all the way around and add 6 inches to the length (this extra will be the top of the bag).  Cut out and sew long sides together.  Crimp or hem the top.  Place bag of mix inside, tie with a pretty ribbon and attach a cute tag with the instructions.
 
**Place mixes in a cellophane gift bag and wrap with a pretty bow, raffia, bells or ornanament, and attach instructions. 
 
**Drink mixes can be placed inside a mug or teapot for gift giving
