Though we originally put this sweet gift together for Mother’s Day, I’m fairly certain it would make for an adorable gift for anyone year round. Hostess gift? Birthday gift? It’s totally interchangeable. Pair it with a cute mug (with matching saucer if you’re looking to truly impress) and you’re totally and completely set!
Cover the box with the paper (teal side up), using the glue stick. When you reach corners, use the exacto knife or scissors to cut out extra paper so the corners lie flat. Wrap the excess paper around the interior of the box.
Mix several teas to create your own unique blends. Looking for some inspiration? Here are some herbal tea recipes to try.
Scoop 1- 2 tablespoons of tea into the center of two layers of tulle circles. Gather the sides of tulle and tie off into a little bundle with the white embroidery thread. Leave a tail of thread about 4” long. Trim excess tulle. *If your tea has lots of small bits, you may want to use a third layer or pre-made tea filter paper.
Cut a 1” strip of the ombre paper, along the border where you can see the brushstrokes of color. Cut the strip into ½” widths to make tea tags. Write the flavor on each tag, then draw an “x” with the exacto knife on the top of each tag. Thread the end of the tea bag tail through the “x” and tie off.
