My Cup of Tea

I've had this little teabag holder project in my head since I was designing the A Cup of Life set a few months ago, but I just didn't have time to try it out before release. I needed a little sanity break from packing orders, so whipped this up in about 15 minutes. Here's what I did:

  • Cut 8.5 x 3.25" strip of cardstock
  • Scored at 1.5, 4.5 and 5.5" inches
    Embossed with textile background folder, then sponged edges
  • Used decorative border punch on the 1.5" end
  • Punched a 1/16" hole through the top center for the string
    Stamped images from A Cup of Life in Crimson red, sponged with Vintage Photo
  • Glued image to holder
    Added ridinghood red ribbon and bow across top
  • Stapled Tea tag to red hemp twine


  1. ADORABLE; love the sponging, really makes it pop!

  2. What a fun little idea, Julee!!! Love that aged look of it. Way to go.

  3. That's really cute! I keep forgetting to emboss. Thanks for the inspiration!

    p.s. If you need help packing orders (i.e. MINE), let me know - tee hee. I can't WAIT to play!!!

  4. Really lovely. I know what you mean about taking a break sometimes. Love your art. Don't break too long.

  5. This is absolutely wonderful. I think this will be a set I add to the set & plain janes that I won.... Love it

  6. Love your beautiful work. You are such a talented lady, and the sponging and rich colors on this card are awesome. Love that gorgeous bow too.


Thanks so much for taking the time to brighten my day with a comment! I love hearing from you.
