Let me begin by saying that NYC is in the middle of a heat wave…. over 100 degrees all week. So, I wanted to do something Christmas-y… I also watched Titanic and The Day After Tomorrow. Watching the snow on TV has a cooling effect. Sort of 🙂
These took longer to dry than anything else, but I stamped, colored, assembled and bagged this in about 5 minutes.
The teabags are from Tazo tea… I included an Awake (English breakfast tea), Chai (spiced tea), and Refresh (mint) teabag and wrapped a piece of ribbon around them. I chose those flavors because they reminded me of the holidays, but also because the wrappers are red, gold, and dark green. I wanted it to match.
The stamp is from the $1 bin at AC Moore… I love this snowman! I roughly colored him in with Zig markers, and added some Crystal Effects on a few snowballs.
I matted the image on a scrap of corrugated cardstock and inked the edges. Glue dots were my best friend on this project.
This would be a cute stocking stuffer, or small thank you for the holidays (perhaps tucked in a mug). ultimately, this idea could be used for party favors, or for any occasion. All you need is a stamp, a scrap of ribbon, and three individually wrapped teabags in whatever color suits you. I know Tazo makes an entire rainbow of colors.
