Anyone for Tea ?

Just for fun at #coffeeandcard tomorrow, the theme is actually 'TEA'

We will be making these little tea-bag holders, perfect as a little gift in a card, or with a little notecard tucked inside.

These were all based on an idea from Linda Heller at Stampingschool.com. When I subscribed to her amazing how-to videos this was one that I used many moons ago, but decided it would work perfectly for coffee and card.

The little pockets are made from a sheet of 6"x6" Designer Series paper - the lovely Have a Cuppa paper is just perfect for this as you can see above. I also used the 'It's My Party' paper stack as that has some lovely bright designs.  You could increase the size of this project quite easily - taking it to 4x4" by using an 8" square.


 
The little folder opens up to reveal 2 folded pockets into which can be placed tea bags (or coffee bags) or even a thin little wrapped biscuit. The ribbon runs all the way around the holder, with the little circle fixed at the back to hold it in place.

I hope they like the designs - I will have some finished samples to share with you after the session tomorrow. Why not join us? We will be live on Periscope at approx 10:30am UK (BST), you can find me as @brackleycrafter or Jenny McCormac. 
If you do join us, please say Hi and tell us who you are and where you are from!
