For Cinco de Mayo!
(Used in this project: Small Diamond Tags and Envelope Seals in Fest style.)

Plus, if you make a double batch of the Horchata, you’ll have enough to serve as a beverage during the … [Read more...]
(Used in this project: Large Labels in Champagne style and Medium Paper Favor Bags.) Traditionally, wedding guests have thrown rice at the departing bride and groom to bid them fruitfulness.
