HAPPY SUNDAY ALL!
Yesterday I mentioned I was working on some tea bag holder cards for the local Tea Shoppe (Marge's Place At Portage Lakes LLC) and thought you might like to see some of them and how I made them. Here ya go ...
Now here's how you make them . . .
You will need:
1 sheet of 12 x 12 card stock (makes 2)
Patterned Paper, sentiments & embellishments of your choice
* Cut your 12 x 12 card stock at 7"
* Turn and cut your 7" x 12" in half (6")
* Score each panel (on the 7" side) at 3 3/8" & 3 5/8" giving you a 1/4" spine.
* Turn and score at 1 1/2" ... giving you the pockets for your tea bags.
* Fold as shown. Use 1/8" scor tape (or fine line of white glue) on ends and middle then fold UP to create your pockets.
Now comes the fun part ... decorating!
Measurements you will need:
Front Panel - 3 1/8" x 4 1/4"
Inside Pocket Panels (2) - 3 1/8" x 1 1/4"
Ribbon - Approx. 20" (narrow, easy to tie ribbon is best)
Here's a trick I use for attaching my ribbon evenly ...
Using my Darice Cutting Mat (you can use whatever you have that shows measurement on both side and bottom). I lay my card face down along the bottom line then run a piece of thin scor tape across from side to side along one of the measurement lines.
Fold my 20" piece of ribbon in half, then laying that center mark of the ribbon in the center of my card first and smoothing out from side to side.
That way, I know the ribbons will batch up on the sides for tying. As well as being level across the front of my card.
NOW you can attach your sentiment and any addition embellishments you prefer.
** FINISHED CARD **
Hope you're having a FABULOUS weekend!
