Tea Time (Homemade Tea Bags)

A good friend came over this weekend full of project ideas. We both love making things and agree             handmade is the best! The first project is one I tried years ago, and was excited to try again. Check back  soon to see what else we made.

    What you need:

    Coffee Filters 
    Dental Floss (we used two kinds mint and unflavoured)
    Your Favourite Loose Tea: We used Spearmint and English Breakfast 

    Fold and flatten the coffee filter. We cut them in half first making them easier to work with.

We cut out heart shapes, but feel free to make any shape you like. Keep in mind you will need to sew      around the edges, so you might not to get to complicated.

Sew edges closed with the floss, be sure to leave a gap to fill with tea. I used the mint floss with the spearmint tea, and unflavoured with he English Breakfast

   Fill each teabag with your favourite tea, finish sewing up the gap.

Attache tags by weaving thread anywhere on the bag you like!
We decorated ours with hearts and personalized messages.

So Pretty!
