Make Your Own Christmas Tea Bags

DIY Christmas Tea Bag

Why not make your own Christmas tea bags this year? They are perfect small gifts to give to friends and family.

DIY Christmas Tea Bag

Supplies: Brown paper, a coffee filter, christmas tea (orange, cinnamon…), twine, thin recycled cardboard from the back of a college notebook, a glue stick, a small stapler, thread and needle and a pair of scissors. And you need a computer with printer access. 1. Open a word processing program and write something you want displayed on the cover. I’ve written “Julete”, that is Norwegian for “Christmas Tea”. Print whatever you want displayed out on brown paper. 2. Cut out rectangular shape of the brown paper, approximately 5 x 15 cm (2 x 6 in). Make sure that the writing comes on one of the sides. Fold 0.5 cm (0.2 in) in from both sides and glue the bag together. 3. Cut out a rectangle from the coffee filter, 4 x 6 cm (1.6 x 2.4 in) as shown below.

4. Use the thread & needle and sew around two of the sides of the tea bag. Then fill the bag 2/3 full with tea and close off the third side. 5. Fold the top of the tea bag and attach some twine with a staple. I’ve made a heart at the end of the twine by sewing a heart onto a piece of recycled cardboard.

      Nonsense, my brain is not very creative. But I do believe in Maya Angelou’s saying that “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ;-)
