Teabag Booklet

One of my friends has birthday tomorrow and she loves fruit tea. Just giving her a carton with teabags seemed a bit boring and I wondered if a little teabag booklet would not just be it


Supplies:
paper - Kraft paper from Elzybelles, K&Company
garphics - Graphics Fairy, Vintage Printable
Nestabilities
ribbon from my stash

I decided to use Kraft paper for this project ... which fits with the Gingersnap Creations Kraft challenge as well .... I cut all the shapes with nestabilities (rectangulars and oval shapes) creating pockets for the teabags and the front and back covers. The pockets and the cover pages were then decorated with fruit and tea-party images from the Graphics Fairy and Vintage Printable. I joined all pages by using little rectangular shapes and ribbons. And filled all pockets with teabags. Enjoy your tea, Petra.

Oh Petra- you outdid yourself with this one. (although I am hardly surprised!!!) What a cute idea for any kind of little book, but to put the tea bags in? That was genius. I'm sure your friend will love it!
