Angel Glitter
Add this project with the Guardian Angel Bag

Make a paper tag, with the name "Angel Glitter" and with these instructions:
"For a little magic in your life, close your eyes, sprinkle some on and make a wish.  It it sparkles, you wish will come true!"

Place about 1/4 c. of regular table salt in a large zip lock bag and a couple teaspoons of coarse clear glitter (the iridescent ones) and 3 - 4 drops of essential or floral oil.  Shake the bag to mix contents.  Test it on a paper towel to make sure the oil doesn't stain the paper, and if it does, add more of the dry ingredients until it doesn't.  If you don't have essential oil, use anything that smells nice (i.e. cologne or vanilla extract, you get the picture).  This quantity makes about 8 little packages.

Make 8 small envelopes using angel, Victoria, floral or whatever you choose.  Glue sides of envelope with any good paper glue.  Seal the flap with a temporary glue stick.  Place about 1/2 tsp. of the Angel Dust in a baggie, or you can also use those little jewelry plastic bags, they sell it at the craft stores.  Makes it easier for opening.  Place one in each envelope.
