Tea Bag Holder with CTMH Blossom and Treats of Friendship

Following up on my previous post featuring a card made from the fabulous Treats of Friendship stamp set and the new Blossom paper pack, I wanted to share this coordinating tea bag holder that is a perfect little gift for a friend, teacher, co-worker.

Individually wrapped tea bags or chocolate squares slide perfectly into the inside pouch!

For the exterior of the holder...

Lagoon cardstock base (included in the Blossom paper pack) cut at: 3 1/2" x 7 3/4"
On your scoreboard, place your paper landscape view and
score at 3 1/2" and 4 1/4"
Fold on score lines

Sorbet cardstock (included in the Blossom paper pack) cut at:  3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Blossom B&T patterned paper cut at 3" x 3"

Before adhering your layered squares to the front, take approximately 18" of Bakers Twine or ribbon and attach underneath front squares to anchor.

For the interior tea bag holder...

Blossom B&T patterned paper cut at: 6" x 7"
On your scoreboard, place your paper portrait view and
score at 1/2" and 3 1/4"
Turn to landscape view and
score at 3 1/8" and 3 7/8"
Fold on score lines
Adhere at the 1/2" fold making a long sleeve

Use a circle punch on each end of your sleeve to make a decorative edge to slide your tea bags in and out.

Adhere the center of the sleeve to the center of the holder.

Embellish the outside with the "A Little Treat for You" sentiment stamped in Sorbet ink on the tea bag shape that is coordinated and cut out from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge.

Add a mix of Coral Reef Sequins and Oceanside Sequins for extra bling!

Thanks to Stamping with Stace for this great idea!
