This self promotional piece makes a big impression on a modest

cylindrical tin container with a homemade mulled wine spice
mix, and a recipe to make a warm, flavorful, aromatic, mulled
The kit recipe made a single serving and also directed recipients
to my website, where they could download a recipe to brew a
larger batch of mulled wine for sharing and also look at other
entries in my graphic design portfolio.
