DIY Tutorial: Tea Bag Favours by Boho Bride Laura

Today I am inviting Laura back to the Blog to share with us another fab DIY project that she has been putting together for her wedding next September.

In case you missed it last time Laura is one of my brides getting married on 7th September 2013 and she is DIY mad! she has already created some amazing things for her wedding, so  a few weeks ago I invited her along to my house to put together a few DIY tutorials for the Blog. The lovely Jess Petrie also came along to take the photos.

And if you did miss it you have to check out her last post, 1000 paper cranes backdrop as it is AMAZING!

Today Laura is showing us how to make Tea Bag Favours


Here’s Laura……………..

Tea Bag Favours


You will need

Tea bags of your choice (or other small favour)
Cello bags
Sewing machine or needle & thread
Strong glue or glue gun
Labels or thick paper

1) If your cello bags are big (mine were huge!), trim them down to size. (Mine are A5 size cut in half)

2) Insert favour

3) Seal shut along one side with a sewing machine. Leave the thread tails slightly long to provide a really satisfying ripping when you tear the bags open!

4) Add a nice label to the top of your bags, with suitably witty saying. I printed mine on paper from a standard PC and printer, but you could also print directly onto sticky labels.

5) You can be as creative with you contents, stitching and labels to really personalise your favours.
