Everyone loves treats into the office, and Japan is no exception! Whenever you travel, go to a special event, go on vacation, or leave your job or department, people bring omiyage back for their fellow coworkers. When I heard from my friend Zhing over at little projects in style that her husband had to bring omiyage into the office but wasn’t sure what to give, I instantly thought – rice crispy treats! But of course I couldn’t stop there. I added a bit of ombre coloring and a cute little gift tag to make them really one of a kind. On cooking day, we ran out of time, so we decided to mix in a few plain rice crispies with this adorable striped wax paper.
I kept the gift tag relatively simple and professional, although I printed it on blue polka dot card stock so the back of the gift tags had a pop of happy color and design. I really struggled with adding in the “regards” – it sounds so impersonal, but it’s for the office, and since the gift was supposed to be coming from Daniel (who is a guy after all!), I figured to roll with the punches. Come back later this week for this gift tag freebie!
