Tea bag holder - A Class

Let's make a tea bag holder for class this coming Saturday!

I think this will be a fun class. One of the projects we will create is this tea bag holder. We will also create a couple of matching cards but you will have to check back as I will be posting them during the week.

There are no magnets or velcro to close it together, just some strategically placed brads and embellishments. The holder will not only hold 3 tea bags but you can also use it to hold gift cards, bills or small candy bars like Ghirardelli chocolates.

The tea bag holder measures 3 1/2" x 4 1/2".  

Here are pictures of two other holders I recently made.

A beautiful blue and yellow one that went to Texas for my tea partner, Karen. Side view:

And another sweet pink that went to Kalihi for my tea partner, Brenda:

Just for fun, here are the matching cards that was sent with each tea bag holder:

For the Yellow Rose of Texas!!  So appropriate for my Texan friend, Karen, don't you think?

And for Brenda who is a real life sweet heart!

We will also be creating some matching cards in class which is scheduled for Saturday, February 28, 2015.  Cost is $23 and will be held at A Place in Time in Kailua.  Please email me to reserve your space or call Bill.

Supplies to bring to class include:  scissors, paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive (glue and tape), piercing tool, scoring tool that will score in 1/8" measurements; corner rounder, black ink pen to create pen stitching (I used .5mm); black ink pad, and a scallop border punch, if you have one.  Please also bring the Envelope Maker from We R Memory Keepers if you have one.

Cup of tea

Hi everyone! I've been creating some prototypes of projects for the upcoming class scheduled for February 28. Going back to my love of tea and tea parties, we will create a tea bag holder and a couple of matching cards.  Please stay tune for some sneak peeks.

The month has flown!! I've been busy with birthday parties, the kids' class projects, valentine cake pops for the kid's class, thank you cards for birthday wishes and other family activities. It's almost the end of February and our next class is scheduled for Saturday, February 28!!

At class last month, one of my students, Joanne, created these cute tea cup holders!! I bought a couple of them from her for my tea swap. She said she cut them out with her Silhouette.

For the one she created for me, she added several tea bags, a tea spoon, and some tea flavored packets to add to the water bottle.

I just love how cute they are!! Thanks, Joanne, you are the best!!!

Cards from the little Tea Swap

Here's an adorable card made by Mary C.  She is a member of our tea swap.  Wish I knew more about the stamp she used.

Another card from tea swapper Carol.  I believe this is a Julie Nutting Prima stamped doll and she was swapped during our October tea swap.

She is just adorable with her beaded lace dress.

If you wish to join our little tea swap, drop me a line.  The swap only requires you to send a handmade card to your partner with two bags of tea.  Have a great weekend!
