Tea Favors

Happy Monday!!
Remember that invite a made a few weeks ago for a tea party?  Well, they liked the invites so much they asked me to make some favors and thank you notes.  So I was off to my crafting table, starting with some Lovebug Product first, of course!!
I made a little package for the tea bag and wrapped it up with Momma's Mesh and other sweet treats.

I started by measuring the tea bag and it fit a 3x4 square with a little over a 1/4 inch all the way around.  So, I cut strips four inches wide by 10 inches long and scored them at 3 and 7.  I wanted the tea bag to show inside a bit and have a flap over the top.

Next, I cut some SU Designer Paper just an /8 of an inch smaller and layered two different patterns for the top and the botton.  I added a half oval punch as a 'finger pull' on the bottom.  The top flap has that cute Tea Riffic seniment from Fiskars layered with my SU punches.
For the bottom I knew I wanted to give it a 'wrapped up' feel... so I grabbed some Momma's Mesh.  I love how that brown looks on the pretty orange.  Next went a simple satin ribbon. 
  I added some flowers and a button with twine as a focal point.  I hot glued this on for two reasons - 1 - I needed something hold the weight of that rosette and 2 - it would seep in through the mesh making a good strong connection to the base.  This allowed me to use the rossette as the closure.  See it pokes up just enough to keep the top flap down.

I am pretty happy with how these turned out.  I think they will bring the tea theme but not take up much space on the table.  Don't forget to hop to Lovebug Creations and pick up some o your own goodies!!
Look - I finally did a video again!!  HERE
