Tea Time!

Hi everyone - Beth here! Winter is certainly in full force where I live. The temps have really plummeted in the past week. Saturday's high was 5-degrees. Brrrr!

It's the perfect time for a hot cup of tea! And, what lovelier way to present it than with Deena's Time for Tea - Tea Bag Envelope downloadable. Two tea envelopes print on one sheet and there is also an instruction page.

I decided to use both envelopes -- one for the tea bag, and the other I used to make a card and matching gift tag. The tea bag envelope is super easy. Just cut and fold. I inked the edges in black to give it a more distressed look and used double-side tape for the edges.

For the card, I cut out the front of the other tea envelope and adhered it to lavender paper that I decorated with photo corners. I added a ribbon and tiny butterfly embellishment. The get well messages is hand stamped. I then glued the entire panel to a white card. I used my craft punch for the tag and added a piece of lavender seam binding.

The colors on this envelope are so cheery! Wouldn't this make a great pick-up-me gift for a loved one who's been under the weather?

There are lots more tea envelopes which you can find here!

Thanks for visiting today!
