From Me to You-Handmade Tea Bags

I love making things. I love giving them as presents and I love getting handmade presents. But who doesn't?:) We all like personal touch and though that something was made specially for us and nobody else. 
Today I made tea bags and box for them. Every tea bag comes with a message for the receiver of the gift on which occasion it should be used:) I am happy to give away this example to somebody. If you would like a chance to get it, please write in comment who would you give it to and your favorite kind of tea:) If you don't want to give it to anybody, but rather keep it for yourself, write who would you share it with:) In this box are four kind of teas, and two bags of each, yes, eight in whole:) Camomile, Maroccan Mint, Rooibos Tiramisu and the Black tea with violet. (As I am writing this I am drinking Rooibos Tiramisu).  If you don't want to get it as a present but would rather make one on your own, underneath are instructions how.

                                               Here is what you need:

Some nice paper for covering box with. 

Organza, maybe even silk or any thin fabric cut in size and shape you want

Little labels for your tea bags, three of each kind. Two for tea bags and one for inside of the box where you will write you message and "directions" for using your tea bags. 

Now, you need to saw your bags, fill them up with the tea of your choice, leave some string and attach to it little label. Corresponding label will go on inside of the box.

And here are four of mine

Cover the box inside and outside with a paper. If you have nice handwriting you can write text yourself (I don't have), otherwise print your text and stick it on and inside of the box.



  1. Oh these are sooo nice! I would share it with my beloved partner who is rather drinking coffee than tea, but I'm sure tea from these teabags are more tempting...:)

  2. wow, this is nice! & such a great idea! Well, I would like one & I don't want to give to anyone else, but I would share with my hubby! I don;t have a favorite tea, but I would like to try Maroccan Mint.
