Project Tuesday - Tea Bag Holder

I don't like tea. I figured I should say that up front. So when it came to making this cute little tea bag holder for Project Tuesday, I had to come up with something else to go in it because once again - I don't like tea! So I said to myself "Self, what do you like?" The answer - CHOCOLATE! So I figured I should tell you that Ghiradelli chocolate squares fit very nicely into this tea bag holder. It's a little "stuffed" but definitely worth it! I suppose you could adjust the size slightly if you don't want it to look stuffed, but I did not.






Now normally I don't combine my Design Team work with other challenges, but this week I did. So....here are the details!

  • Project Tuesday - obviously! Very cute and it's VERY EASY so give it a try!
  • Use It! - pink, scallops and a tag. Which is why I combined this week - it was perfect for the Project Tuesday challenge!
  • Caardvarks asked for a 3-D item this week. I am thinking this qualifies as 3-D!

The stamps on the front tag from Stamps & Smiles and all the papers came from an Apron Strings Design kit I had in my stash. You should check both of them out too!!

this is so cute! I love your idea of changing it up to hold chocolate! I think if I had to choose between tea or chocolate, the chocolate would win!
