Learn how to make Tea Bag Wrappers with this tutorial.
Looking for a cute and simple gift idea for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation or just to say Thank You to a special someone? Tea Bag Wrappers are perfect for that! They are simple to make and are fun to receive!
Cute right? I made them using the supplies I received through #12MonthsOfMartha. I just LOVE how they turned out. Would you like to make some too?
Tea Bag Wrappers
- Scrapbook Paper (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Essentials Paper Pad – Doily Lace and Pastels Paper Pad)
- Mini Scoring Board from #MarthaStewartCrafts
- Layering Punches (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Wildflower)
- Craft Glue
Martha Stewart Crafts supplies are available at Michaels Arts and Crafts, Jo-Anns Fabrics & Crafts and Amazon.com.
Step 1: Find a tea bag wrapper template online or create one yourself.
I created my own, however my scanner isn’t working at the moment, so I’m unable to share it with you right now.
Trace the wrapper unto the scrapbook paper you have selected and cut it out.
Step 2: Place the tea bag wrapper face down onto the scoring board. Use the scoring tool to score each flap of the wrapper.
Step 3: Place the tea bag inside the wrapper. Fold the wrapper closed and use a stapler to staple it shut.
Step 4: Use paper punches to cut out shapes to decorate the tea bag wrapper.
Step 5: Glue the shapes together to give a nice layering look.
Step 6: Glue them onto the wrapper.
Step 7: Cut out a little rectangle and heart and glue them together.
Step 8: With the help of scissors make a little slit inside the rectangle and slip the string inside it.
Voilà, you are done!
As you can seen in the above picture, I also used Martha Stewart Crafts Scalloped Circle Punch on some of the tea bag wrappers. I liked the look of the flowers on top of the scalloped circles.
What do you think of them?
If you are planning on making some, perhaps you can plan a trip to the dollar store and pick up a tea cup and even go to a specialty store to grab some unique tea blends. This will definitely be a well appreciated gift!
Hope you are having a FABULOUS day!
