using the Cup of Tea Bundle
At my recent catalog launch, I decided that a tea party theme was in order. I used the new Cup of Tea bundle (in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog) and grew more and more excited when I realized that I could make my teacups look almost exactly like my everyday china. Now for those of you who are younger, you probably have never heard of everyday and fine china. But once upon a time, those were the 2 things -and the only 2 things that a bride asked for or was registered for (she could add silver or crystal too, I guess). Nevertheless, look how cool my “matching” teacups turned out!
Now, I’ll tell you about the cute little “teabags” that my matching teacup is attached to. I was inspired by L ‘Atelier d ‘Agathe’s wonderful teabags that she created. Her teabags were larger and the measurements were in centimeters. I adapted mine, making them smaller so you would be able to use an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of cardstock. With my design, you can get 3 teabags out of one piece of cardstock.
I hope you have fun creating your own teabag favor. Let me know the colors you use and if it matches your dishes. 😉 Here’s a link to my YouTube tutorial and below you will find all the written dimensions as well as a supply list that is linked to my online store. Enjoy your cup of tea!
