Red Alert! Red Alert! Mother’s Day is this weekend.
Moms appreciate all kinds of gifts: Escalades, trips to Mexico, complete wardrobe makeovers! But, they also love handmade gifts
just almost as much. So, if you are scrambling for a sweet, meaningful gift, here’s a little idea you may enjoy: cute bunches of tea!
Here’s how to make it:
You’ll need some mod podge (mine is homemade, hence my little mason jar), foam brush, tape, scrapbook paper, clothespins, twine, and a sharpie.
Cut some pieces of your scrapbook paper into little shapes like the ones below. This will be the foundation for your little envelopes.
Next, choose some flavorful tea. I went with the teas below.
Fold and tape your envelope, as pictured below, then stuff a teabag of your choice into the envelope. Make sure to remember what flavor teabag you put in, because you’ll have to write the name of it on the envelope. (If you forget, take a few sniffs of the envelope…hopefully, you’ll be able to figure it out!)
Now, modpodge strips of scrapbook paper onto your clothespins.
Take your wrapped teabags and clothespin a few of them together. Don’t forget to tie a little twine around the clothespin for that added hint of chic-ness.
Here’s the final project:
Don’t forget, you can also wrap store bought gifts using boring items you may have hanging around the house…Easy way to funky-fy your gifts.
In the pictures, below, I wrapped a mother’s day gift with a paper bag, twine, and pages torn out from a book. I topped it all off with some herbs from my garden that I wrapped in old book pages. Moms love herbs, right? (Must. Resist. The. Oh. So. Obvious. Joke.)
Hope my mom isn’t reading this blog post…and if you are mom, act surprised when this comes in the mail to you this weekend.
And by the way, “I love you.”
Happy Mother’s Day to all!
