Vintage Vogue Tea Bag Holder

Happy Friday! As promised, here is another project made with the Vintage Vogue stamp set. I created this tea bag holder, which would make a perfect gift for a friend who's under the weather or in need of a little pick me up.

Don't you just LOVE this color combination - Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. It's so bright and happy, plus the tea bag matches the color scheme! :) Here's a view of the inside of the holder:

I'm planning to make up a batch of these to trade at the Milwaukee Regional. If you are planning on going, let me know. :) Just in case you want to make one of your own, here are the dimensions: start with a 3 1/2" x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock. Score at 3 1/2" and 7". Cut the far right panel at a diagonal, fold so that it makes a pocket over the middle panel. Secure the pocket with a piece of Sticky Strip along the bottom of the pocket. That's all for today - have a great weekend!

Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo
Accessories: 3/4" circle punch, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Sticky Strip

Jen,

I love your tea bag holder. It makes me want to have a cup on a brisk morning like today. The colors are so cheerful! I'll be attending regionals on Friday and would love to receive a swap from you! Thanks for sharing your ideas on your blog! They're "simply cute!"
