Well I have been busy making some of these tea bag folders as a little thank you for some of my lovely customers this month.
I did a fair bit of browsing and found lots of samples and styles but finally settled on one of those with the double pockets. With Gingham Garden DSP and Island Indigo as my colours of choice - this is what I came up with.
my Stampin Up markers to hand colour the stamps I used from the Tea
Shoppe stamp set, that way I knew I could co-ordinate them perfectly
with the paper I chose.
I opted to do a bit of paper-pierceing round the front to add some interest and popped it up on dimensionals to allow a bit of 'wiggle room' for my ribbon.
inner pocket is hopefully secure as it is held in place with sticky
strip but also the additon of a couple of toning brads to make sure!
Fastened with a piece of toning ribbon, my holders each carry a couple of fruit infusions. Hopefully the recipients liked them and did indeed have a cup of tea on me by way of thanks!

weather men certainly got the forecast correct saying 'summer' had come
to an abrupt end with last night's thunderstorms and as I write this it is raining heavily and there is definitely a touch of thunder around. Which was fine,
except yours truly having got used to sitting in the garden over the
last couple of weeks , taking the warm weather for granted almost, did
not think to bring in the chair I had lugged outside.
- one very very soggy cane chair. Am hopeful no permanent damage once
it dries out! but, a lesson learnt - which could be equally applied to
all sorts of things - clear up after yourself!
Enjoy it whilst it lasts.
Until next time
