Make Valentine Tea Bags

Author: Amanda Formaro

Supplies

  • Tea bags
  • 1 tea bag envelope to use as a guide
  • Scrapbook papers
  • Non toxic glue stick
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Glue dots
  • Address labels
  • Ribbon
  • White craft glue

Instructions

  • Remove tea bag from the tea bag envelope. Set the envelope aside. Use scrapbook papers to create a new tag for your tea bag and use glue stick to attach it. I used two different patterned papers, one square and one cut into a heart shape.
  • Open the tea bag envelope all the way, carefully so that you don't rip the paper. Lay the envelope onto the scrapbook paper, use the envelope as a template to cut a piece of scrapbook paper just slightly bigger than the original.
  • Fold the scrapbook paper using the paper tea envelope as a guide. use glue stick to attach the two sides together, but not the top flap. Allow to dry.
  • Insert the tea bag, string, and tab into the envelope. Seal the envelope flap with a glue dot.
  • Create labels and attach the back of the envelope. Tie bows from ribbon, trim ends and use a dot of white glue to attach to the front of the envelope.
  • Print out the poem and include with your tea bag gifts.
