Afternoon Tea favours.

Next weekend I am hosting an afternoon tea and it is time to get out the 'good cups and saucers" aka Royal Albert crazy sets; the fabric napkins; the cake forks; the best table cloth and china.  I have made a table favour for each person, to take away with them:
I first scoured the internet for quotes involving tea and I then printed them onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with Stampin' Up! (r) Deco Labels dies.  I made an envelope for a small packet of tea and to decorate with the wonderful Butterfly Die from SU and all tie together with ribbon.
Here are all the elements for the favours - each person will get two of the quotes.
Thank you for looking - here are the quotes I used.  Off to have a cup of tea myself now. Have a great week.   Margaret :)
  • "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."  Henry James, 'The Portrait of a Lady'
  • "If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; If you are excited it will calm you."  William Ewart Gladstone
  • "There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life." Lin Yutang, 'The Importance of Living.'
  • "May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire." An Irish Blessing.
