Tilda Sharing her Tea DDC#25


Isn't this a cute idea? I found this on a blog from overseas (of course with the internet, does the ocean really matter anymore?) called Double Dutch.

This is a little tea bag shaped holder. You fold the paper so there is actually a slot on both sides where you can slip in a little item, probably a tea bag. I am going to put my favorite Twinings Cinnamon Apple tea in this for a friend, so I found some cinnamon sticks and tied those at the top instead of a bow, so the recipient can add a little extra zing to their drink.

Isn't that flower Tilda holding so darling? That's covering up a mistake that I made, just so you know! There is no such thing as perfect stamping! Have a great weekend. Thanks for looking.

Stamps: Magnolia, Papertrey Ink (sentiment on tag)
Paper: Orange is Bazill, dotted is Papertrey Ink, gingham a gift from a friend and the striped yellow is a random scrap, watercolor paper for Tilda
Accessories: ribbon from Hobby Lobby, reinkers to color Tilda, SU WWC for her face, raffia, PTI buttons in lemon tart and melon
