These make a wonderful, whimsical gift, appropriate for all ages
-All the items on the list below should be available at your local dollar store or from your home.
-The bags I found in the wedding decoration section.
-If you are a handy sewer, you can make your own bags with a drawstring closure.
- Fill the bag with one of each item on the list below
- Copy and paste the list of things below and what they mean into a program like Microsoft Publisher so you can choose a nice font and an appropriate size to fit it all on a business card in portrait mode.(Go here for a detailed tutorial on making the card in Microsoft Publisher) Leave a space at the top of the card for a hole
-Print out the business card., Punch a small hole in the top of it
-Thread the drawstring ribbon through the hole in the card to attach it to the bag
- Give one to all your friends :)
(print the following onto the business card)
