Tea Bag Holder - and a sale!

Last night, I attended a Stampin' Up crafting class.  I really couldn't afford the time and yet the fellowship and craftiness was certainly good for my spirits and I feel a sense of renewal as I hit the books again today.


We made a number of cards, as well as this fun tea bag holder.  In fact, this holder could be used for a variety of small gifts - like gift cards or even bits of individually wrapped chocolate.  At the class, all the materials that we used were from Stampin' Up - but when I got home, I changed the front to a tiny sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set from My Craft Spot.  (The faux stitched border on the tag is from the same stamp set.) I added a little flower eyelet from my stash and finished things off with some Mandarin baker's twine, also from My Craft Spot.  


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


Did you know that there's a sale going on at My Craft Spot?  From now until Monday, when you purchase four stamp sets at regular price, Kimberly will throw in a fifth set (of your choice) for just one penny!  You can read all the details of the sale HERE and then choose your stamp sets from Kimberly's shopping page.  What a great way to build your stamp collection!

I love it, the colors are so bright. I would love to try and make one pf these. I am in a stick pin swap and I think this would be perfect to put them in. Hope I can figure it out from your pictures.

It's good to take a break although we think taking a break puts us further behind. But you end up being totally refreshed. I know this because I am the same way.

What a cute project. I made something similar one time at a SU workshop. So fun!
