I just love all the beautiful Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!. It really makes cards and projects pop. This project is no exception. I wanted to use up some of the gorgeous DSP that I have which sadly recently retired. This particular one seemed like the perfect pick to go with my friend’s favorite color – green.
I watched a demonstrator from France make a similar gift holder but since I don’t know any French (despite having had several French exchange students) I was totally lost as to any measurements or other details. Being a visual person, I watched closely and then experimented with my own gift holder. My gift holder features 4 tea “pockets”. The French version had five, I believe. I searched high and low to find the French video again. I couldn’t find it but I did find out that teabag gift holders have been around for years and years.
After many attempts and a pile of incorrectly cut cardstock, I finally came up with measurements that made a really cute teabag gift holder. I’ll leave the measurements below and you can watch the video to see the tips and tricks used to put this project together. You can view the video here. And while you are on my YouTube channel, please consider subscribing so I can continue to make new videos and reach my goals.
The two other teabag gift holders feature the new In Colors for the bases. The one with the Christmas trees uses DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. That DSP is just one of the amazing products that you can get for free with a $50 purchase. Check out my online store to see all the wonderful things you can earn for free through the end of September 2021.
The gift holder base is cut at 8 3/4 by 2 3/4″ and scored on the long sized at 2 1/2, 3, 6 1/8, 6 5/8.
There are 4 pockets and they each measure 5 7/8 x 2 1/2″ and scored on the long side at 2 5/8, 2 3/4, 5 3/8, 5 1/2.
The DSP is cut from a 2 1/2″ strip. Here are the 3 pieces that you’ll need – 2 3/4, 1 3/4, 2 1/4″
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy making this cute project yourself. Let me know what color combinations you come up with.
