A Cup Of Tea On Me

Hello everyone

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.

I used 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.
The 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!
Things you need to make this tea bag holder:

Stamp sets: Tea Shoppe
Inks and Stampin Up Markers: Melon Mambo,Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Yellow, Midnight Muse

Well the 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.  

Result - 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

  1. Lots of tips here Jan (not least to bring in the furniture after a sunny day in the garden!) and a really beautiful result. I'm sure your ladies were absolutely delighted with these! Vicky x


Thanks very much, everyone. I so much appreciate them all.
