My Cup of Tea...Taylored Expressions Release Day!...

to view an image up-close, please click on a photo

As I mentioned earlier this week, I am a tea drinker. So, for today's Taylored Expressions Release Day (woo-hoo!) I thought I would celebrate the pale cousin of coffee with a fun card that is also a gift for tea drinkers like myself. I used the super-cute From the Heart and From the Heart Funnies to make this on-the-go tea bag wallet and card.


In case you are curious, I used a 6X6 sheet of patterned paper to create the tea bag wallet. To hold it all together, I used the fabulous coordinating From the Heart Frame Die and a little circle of clear velcro. 


The above template is not to scale, but should serve as a visual guide for creating the teabag wallet. Dashed lines signify score and fold lines.
