Personalized Message Tea Bags


· Pretty papers (one sheet of two sided patterned and one sheet of plain)
· Mod Podge
· Sponge brush
· Tea (if you can find the tea that's already on a string that's best.  That way you don't have to add your own.)
· Cutting machine or pen and scissors
· Tea Bag Sentiments

Materials for personalized tea bags


1. This project is so easy but does require a tiny bit of prep work.  First, you need to decide what you want your tea bags to say.  I used positive affirmations but you could send more personal messages, love notes, or anything else you want!  I shared mine with you to get you started (click on Tea Bag Sentiments above).  Have fun, play with fonts, colors, and sizes.  I use my Silhouette machine to write them all out into cute little frames and then cut them out, but you can still do it old school and just use simple shapes.  Here's what they looked like all cut out:

2. Cut out small squares of pretty scrapbooking paper to use as your background.  It's best if you use two sided paper.  Your squares need to be just a bit bigger than the ones you made above, see pic #2 below.

3. Take your teabags out of the box and unwind all of the tags.  I had to trim mine just a bit.

4. Apply some Mod Podge (or other adhesive) to the back of one of your text pieces, and place the tea bag tag on top.

Adhere one of your sentiments to one of the tea bag tags using Mod Podge or other adhesive.

5. Add just a bit more glue onto the tag you just added and place the whole thing onto one of your background papers.

Next, adhere the tag to one of your pretty background papers.
Here is another example of what a completed tag looks like.

6. Now just repeat until you've tagged all of your tea!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I bought tea in individual packets and put the messages on the outside of them. That way the tea bags would say fresh and did not look "handled". I thank you very much for the basic idea.

What a cute idea!! :)
