TEA BAG HOLDERS FOR A CAUSE!!

I can finally share this project I have been working on the last 2 weeks.  They are all now sent off and reached their destination.  On a Facebook group I am on the call went out for help for a Fundraiser.  I offered to make some little gifts for the goodie bags they would have.  Then the realisation hit – What was I going to do?? I needed 65!!!  After a little pondering I decided to make some little Tea Bag Holders.  I had an abundance of teabags – and lots of retired paper. 🙂

Here is just a sample of some of them.

I used the set ‘Garden in Bloom’ for the little labels on the front.  I thought it was very appropriate for such an event.

Here is just one of them. I will share the ‘how to’ further below.

Opened out I could fit a tea bag, a cute tea verse (see below) and my business card.

Here is the verse I put inside.  I found this on Pinterest.

“When  your  day  seems  topsy  turvy,

And as stormy  as  can  be.

There  is  nothing  quite as  tranquil,

As a nice hot  cup  of tea.”

So here they are all 65 of them packed and ready to go.

So here are the details if you would like to make your own.  There are a few different versions around the internet but these were inspired by a Convention swap I received some years ago.  I adjusted the size so I could fit my business card in and just made them a little differently.  I could get 4 to a 12″x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper.

TEA BAG HOLDER

Cut your paper to 7.5 cm x 25 cm     (3″ x 9 7/8″)

Score your paper at 9 cm, 10.2 cm, 11.5 cm and 21 cm.    (3 1/2″, 4″, 4 1/2″ and 8 1/4″).

Fold on your score lines creating a “W” shape. (I hope that makes sense??).  The end with the narrowest scored piece is the front flap. Corner punch the corners on this flap.  I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch for most of them or else I used the regular Corner punch.  Add a bow to the front flap.

Stamp your greeting and punch out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch.  Add Dimensionals on the back just on the lower section.  Add to the front of your holder.  You can tuck the flap under the top of the punched circle to hold it together.

I hope you like these.  They are very quick to make once you get going.

Thanks for stopping by,

MORE CRAFT FAIR PROJECTS!

I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂  The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these.  Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those).  I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.

Here are some of the projects I have recently made.

Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders.  These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts.  I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements.  These were decorated with all kinds of stars.  Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.

Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope.  I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though.  I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below.  Just check your own currency note size to fit.

MONEY HOLDER  (in metric).

Cut card to 18cmx18cm.  Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.

Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch.  Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.

Insert

Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half.  Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end.  Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency.  You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.

Now how can you forget your furry friend.  These were very popular at my fairs.  I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half.  The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.

A FUN FETE PROJECT!!

On Sunday we had our school fete.  It was such a nice day.  It is always a worry when you plan something like this.  You never know what the weather will be like!!!  I wanted to show you a little memo book I made to sell.  I made some of these a few months ago for the stall at a Party Plan Expo that I did and they were very popular there too.  The original idea came from Carla here.

These are little Post-it note clip holders.  They are so simple and easy to make.

To create these: Cut your card (I use the backing from your DSP packs) and a piece of DSP to 10cmx10cm.  Adhere these together and round the corners with your corner rounder punch.  Cover a large noteclip with DSP and it clips easily onto the holder .  For the clips, just check the size you are using.  Mine were 50mm ones.  I cut the DSP 5cm x 7.5cm.  I used Tombow glue to adhere the DSP to the clip. Tie around some co-ordinating ribbon.  EASY!!!

These are little note clips I created too using Carla’s idea here.  These can be used as a note/photo holder.  They are made the same way as the clips above.

They would make great gifts and very easy to do.

Thanks for looking.  I hope your week is going ok?

Stop by again soon,
