Tea Bag Holder by Sandie

Hi everyone. Today i want to share how I make a Tea Bag holder. These make great gifts and can be used for any occasion. 


Supply List
Plain Carstock - 4" x 9"
Patterned Paper - 7.5" x 8"
3.75" square cardstock for front panel
3 5/8" square patterned paper for front panel
Border Dies - Verstatile Shape and XOXO
Colouring medium
Embellishments
Ribbon.

Score your 4" x 9" cardstock at 4" and 5". Fold the score lines and set to one side.

Taking your patterned paper, score at 0.5" and 4" on the 7.5" side. Fold the score lines. Using double sided tape or other adhesive adhere the 0.5" strip to the other side

You end up with a pocket like this

Score the 'pocket' at 3 3/8" and 4 3/8" and fold the score lines

Using a circle punch, or circle die cut, cut out a semi circle on each end of the pocket

Apply double sided tape or other adhesive to the spine and adhere to the inside of your cardstock. 

Tie the ribbon loosely around the holder


Decorate the front panel as desired

Adhere the panel to the front of the holder, holding the ribbon in place. Fill pockets inside with tea bags, cold/flu meds, etc and you're done :) 


I do hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Don't forget to link up if you try it yourself :)

  10. I envy you because you can simply turn anything into a wonderful work of art. Is there something that you are having a hard time creating into a piece of art?

  12. Fabulous idea. I would definitely make a sample and if I did it right the first time, I'd probably create more so I can give it as a give-away this coming Christmas. Thanks for the idea!
