Good morning all! I have a little project challenge for you today. These make super "token gifts" so with Christmas rapidly sneaking up on us, this might be a handy little project to have up your sleeve.
The classic use for this little holder is to add two tea bags (the sort that come in their own sachet). You can also add one tea bag and one message card or even try changing the contents - how about two After Eight mints or those little flat squares of Green and Blacks choccie?
I use the instructions here
to make my holder. The only thing I did differently was to turn it so that the ribbon is at the top. With tea bag inserts, the belly band holds it all together tightly enough that they won't drop out, even though they're facing downwards. If you're going to add something heavier (like the chocolate squares) you'd be better to stick to the "book spine" orientation, I think. If you want to know more about the supplies I used, you can see it all in this post
on my blog.
I've used tea themed stamps for mine but anything goes - flowers, snowmen, butterflies - how about making a "get well soon" version? Have fun with it!
