I am on a tea related roll it seems (see my teacup pincushion from earlier).
Well, this project was inspired by the best present I ever received. For my birthday one year my wonderful husband cut out a bunch of tiny little hearts and wrote a quality that he loved about me on each one and then put them all in a little box. How sweet was that! So, I have adapted this for teabag tags and I did two versions. One with little sayings of what you love about the recipient of your gift and the other with funny/witty quotes to brighten up their day. I love both equally so this is definitely going into my list of handmade christmas present ideas.
I have done this as a PDF for download as well. A few more photos and prettier layout!
Remove the paper tag from your teabags.
Use the teabag tag size for your guide. You can print out quotes on paper to cut out and layer on pretty scrapbook paper or, as in the plain orange example, you can just cut a rectangle out to fold around the string.
I just used a glue stick to glue it all but made sure I got a good squishy dollop on it so it would hold the string reasonably firmly. You don't need superglue when you consider how long it will be used for! Warning: just make sure your quotes are up the right way before you glue...and, no, I didn't actually do this but just thought it could be easy to do!
Let dry and pop a bunch into a teacup or a pretty box for a personal and thoughtful gift!
Of course, now I have lots of other ideas for variations on this. You could make the tag into a circle shape or a flower shape or whatever large craft punch shape you have on hand....etc... I would love to see what anyone else comes up with so please let me know and link back!
