If you are in my Stamp Club, you got to make one of these fun Tea Bag Holders this month! (There is still room for more Stamp Clubbers, please let me know if you are interested!) This project showcases items from the Spring Mini Catty and the Sale a Bration Catty. This tea bag holder was shown at Regionals in San Antonio. Leadership. Debi Pippin is the creative genius behind this project! You can view her blog HERE. She has an awesome blog! I also found a video tutorial on Niki Toll’s blog and you can view that HERE. I thought it would be fun to add some tea bag shaped cookies! This recipe is so awesome, it uses POWDERED SUGAR instead of regular sugar! I found the recipe (and another VIDEO) on how to make the shortbread cookies HERE. Can you tell I am a VISUAL LEARNER???To make the cookies look like tea bags, I just rolled out the dough and cut them into rectangles. I used a small straw to poke a hole at the top. Then I strung Baker’s Twine through the hole. The 3/4″ circles have the Baker’s Twine sandwiched inbetween them. The sentiment says “You suit me to a tea” from the stamp set “Tea Shoppe”. Pop the cookies in some cellophane bags and tie with more Baker’s Twine! Voila!Here’s a side view of the Tea Bag Holder with the cookie sandwiched inside. The tea bag holder is secured shut with the 1/8″ Organdy Ribbon from the SAB catty. This ribbon (along with Lucky Limade ribbon AND a package of brads) is FREE with a $50 order!One side of the treat holder holds a small 3×3 card, and the other side holds a tea bag. (Sorry the color of the tea bag clashes, I didn’t have any great tea bag colors!) Now when I go tea shopping I am going to have to forget about the flavor and just go with the colors of the packaging! LOL
The heart is popped up with dimensionals on this card.
If you place a $50 order online from my demonstrator site, I would be happy to send you one of these tea bag holders, along with the small card. (However, I don’t think the cookie would make it in one piece because they are very fragile!) For every $50 you spend, you can get FREE products with the Sale a Bration promotion going on! The paper I used is included in this promotion, as well as the ribbon! You can place an order on my online store HERE. Check out the Sale a Bration catalog AND the Spring Mini Catalog on my sidebar.
