Tea Bag Booklets

Hello All and Happy Weekend!
We are getting another step closer to Spring and if you follow my blog, you know I have a Spring Show coming up so I'm busy, busy creating items for the ladies who attend this private show.  

I had these tea bag booklets available last spring and the ladies seemed to like them so I'd best have them available to them again this spring.  They are a nice little gift item and besides my cards, that seems to be what these ladies are looking for.


INSIDE

This is the basis for all the booklets.  
The verse inside is the same but the base color and front images change.

****   ****   ****

QUICK TUTORIAL

Card base is 6" x 7" (obviously you can get 2 from a 12x12 card stock)
On the 7" length, score at 3 3/8" and 3 5/8" to create your 'spine'
On the 6" length, score at 1 1/2" to create your pocket
I use 1/8" scor tape on the edges & center to create the pocket
Decorate as you desire.

(Ghiradelli chocolates work well in these booklets also)

****   ****   ****

Here are a few others I have ready to go.


































I will create duplicates of most of them since I've gotten to know this group of ladies over the past few years and know there are a couple who will want the same one ... best to be prepared!  LOL

I package these booklets with an envelope in a zip bag, leaving one open for display.


Another little giftie item are these Reese's Mini Pouches.
Created with springtime ribbons and papers.

Hope you've enjoyed today's share ...

Oh wow! These teabag booklets are amazing. No wonder they sell out fast. Love the images and the sweet verse on the inside. Great idea for small gifts. Thanks for the inspiration. Of course the Reese's Mini Pouches area wonderful too ... and yummy :-)

Oh, my GOSH, Darlene! The ladies will go NUTS for these! They're all so beautiful! Ohhhh, I especially love the teacup and teapot images and the flowers. Ack, that polka dot teapot! Stop it! And your little basket of goodies -- cute!! I'll bet the ladies really look forward to this every year. How fabulous it must all be laid out together!

Oh I can certainly see that these beauties are going to go quick in your sale, those images for all the cards are just lovely and so perfect with your tea sentiment and gift inside, that is a sweet sentiment. The little pouches are a cute little gift also, I can't see that you will come back home with any of these goodies!
