Handmade Strawberry White Tea Bags with Paper Sweeties

Have you ever had Strawberry White Tea?  I was in my favorite coffee hangout, Beans and Leaves, and started looking at all the tea flavors.  Strawberry White Tea caught my eye.  I knew I wanted to do a couple of strawberry "things" with Paper Sweeties new stamps.  I have to tell you, the tea smells divine!

So, the Strawberry White Tea Gift was created.  See Abigail in her new strawberry outfit (Thanks Berry Much stamp set)?  She's popped on a clothespin holding the glassine bag closed and keeping the tea bags fresh.  The bag is embossed with tea images from stamp set I'm Having A Tea Party.  Abigail is holding a sentiment from Tea for Two.

Making your own tea bags is actually fun and pretty easy!

Die cut the tea bag paper into desired shape and sew around, leaving an opening for one teaspoon of tea leaves. Finish sewing.  Run thread from the middle top of the bag through the top of the strawberry die cut (or whatever shape you want).  And it's done, that easily!

I let the tea brew for awhile after taking this picture.  I like my tea fairly strong and a white tea is fairly light - but it is tasty!
