It’s been a while since I felt inspired to craft, thank goodness I have my vegetable garden to keep my mind busy and my body in motion. Gardening gives me the opportunity to retreave to a happy place in my head just like creafing often does. Last week was the first time that inspiration hit me while I was in my craft room. There was a tea bag on my desk from a happy mail that I received a while back. The art work and the colors where so pretty I didn’t want to throw it away so I kept it. This little bag inspired me to create a larger version and add a quote inside becuase quotes are always a good thing.
I liked this project so much that I decided to create a template of the bag and share it here with you. I also went as far as designing the pattern on the bag. I hope you like it. I have included 2 tags that will serve as the “tea bag” this is where you can add a quote or a message if you would like to use these as a gift tags. I think it would make a cute decoration to a pretty package.
This is the one that I made. I love it! Now you can make your own. Decorate the bag with the butterfly I am including in the freebie. Maybe print your quote, which is what I should have done.
The dotted lines are where you fold the paper. you won’t be able to see those once the bag is folded. You can pring the file on the white side of the single sided pattern paper if you would like the inside of the bag have a pattern Just like mine. I had to glue 2 pieces of the same paper to achive the look. You can also print the file twice and glue both pieces back to back and have the same pattern inside as well. I hope this made sense.
One last suggestion. You can use the print as a template and trace the design onto a pretty pattern paper and cut out the pattern. Have fun with this project any way you choose to create it.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you tag me if you share this project on your social media. @whitesugardesings
