Tea Bag Art
"A recycled tea bag turned into a mixed media piece of art. The materials are whatever craft ephemera you have lying around, in this case, paper dolls, embroidery thread, rubber stamps, stencils and stickers. This project can be framed and enjoyed or used as a Book mark, glued to the front of a blank card. It could also be used as a refrigerator magnet or glued into a scrapbook page. If there was a series of them it would make a beautiful banner!"

NotesThis is lovely to do with paper dolls or just with embroidery stitches. Only two or three stitch patterns are necessary to make the tag interesting. They are pretty adhered to a blank greeting card. It’s a card with a gift of personal art work. A child could do this.
