DIY Valentine's Tea Bag Holder

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're keeping warm. It's so cold in Colorado right now. Which is why I going to share how make tea bag holder,

Today, I want to share another Quick,  and Easy Valentine's Craft gift idea.  DIY Valentine Tea Holders are so simple to make. All you need is paper, scissors or paper cuter/paper scorer( I sometimes use the back of spoon ), a tea bag, and a glue stick. This valentine's project is easy and cheap to make. 

Finally, a valentine gift for adult. Share the love,  Make these cute tea bag holders for your co-workers, friend, and family. You can create them for every occasion. I made these tea bag holders for my Mother for Christmas, for her co-worker, they loved them.

Do you know January is Hot Tea Month? So sit  back and warm up on a delicious , hot cup of tea. My favorite is Chai. I love and I'm addicted to it 

Let's Start:

Here what you need:
Scrapbook Paper( I used 81/2" to 11" inches card stock  and a regular valentine scrapbook paper)
Paper Cutter
Glue Stick 
Embellishments if you so desire

1) Grab your card stock  and cut down your  paper ( card stock) to 31/2" by 11" inches. 

2)  Score at  31/2" and 7" and 71/2"

3)  Hold your paper as shown  and cut the third panel at a diagonal angle to create a pocket.

4) Grab your glue stick and adhere the pocket to the second panel. Allow to dried.

5)  The next step are optional.  In order to embellish, I cut two 1 x 3-1/2 inch bands of  scrapbook paper. I also cut a diagonal triangle for the pocket. I then add these elements to my tea bag holder. 

6)  Add your tea bag to the pocket. All Finished. Great job!!

What's your Favorite type of tea?
