Tea Time!

Hello & Happy Monday!

It was my turn again over on InStyle Stamps to host Method Monday! This week I chose to make this super cute teabag holder I saw here. It makes a great little gift or even a sweet invitation to have your best buds over for some tea!

So here we go!
- 5″x 11″ cardstock
- 2.25″ x 11″ strip of patterned paper
- 2- 3.25″ square pieces patterned paper
- Strips of cardstock for border punches
- Border punch (I used one from Martha Stewart)
- Adhesive
- String
- Colored image

Step 1: Score 5″ x 11″ cardstock along the long side at: 3.5″ and 3.75″ from both sides.

Step 2: Adhere patterned paper to bottom edge.

Step 3: Punch border from strip of cardstock.

Step 4: Adhere to top edge of patterned paper.

Step 5: Add border punch on 3.25″ squares.
(Note: you can alter these squares to fit the size of the tea bag)

Step 6: Adhere to inside on middle and right panels.

Step 7: Insert teabags.

Step 8: To close, fold right panel in towards center.

Step 9: Tie closed with string & decorate! I used Sitting Ava, she’s just the perfect fit to sit along the top of the patterned paper!Tea Time!

Going along with the paper-piecing theme from my previous post- I printed to Ava's and layered her dress to add some dimension- you can see it here if you look closely :)
