Dear readers and friends who stopped by,
Greetings! I hope things have been well on your side.
Finally, I can share this tutorial with you. I’m happy that all of my swap-partners have received their item(I’m going to show you in a while) which I have hand-made for them. The cool thing is that all 3 of my swap-partners rated me a 5 and gave me a heart for this swap over swap-bot. I’m thrilled! For this swap, we have to send 2 teabags to 3 partners. For me, I used some recycled items to contain (I call them the tea- bag envelope) the individual wrapped tea-bags.
The carton is really steady and I feel sad when I got to throw them away. Anyway the cardboard really makes a good backing for the tea-bag. IF you are keen to make the tea-bag envelope, the materials below are needed for this tutorial:
Something with a flap behind so that it can stand by itself. For the fancy paper, it was a free gift I’ve received when I purchased some magazines previously. You may use any kind of paper, but try not to use origami paper. As some origami paper tends to be very thin and flimsy.
Recommended type of fancy paper at least of 150 gsm in weight.
After having all the materials ready, the steps to the made-up is as follows:
Step 4: Cut out the envelop-slide piece as below. For me, instead of cutting straight, I cut it at a diagonal angel like the one below. And using the glue tape, glue the sides and bottom, after which, place it onto the backing.
Step 5: Lastly you may decorate the tea-bag envelope with any embellishments you fancy. This tea-bag envelope will only contain 2 tea bags. Below showed the three pieces of my work which I’ve sent to my swap partners.
As for you my lovely readers, I have made an extra piece for you too. Now this is the interesting part, you can leave me a comment on what are your favorite kind of tea and I will do a random number draw on the 1st June 2013. The lucky winner will win this (Special Hand-made tea bag envelope containing Jasmine and Chamomile tea):
