Wedding favours are a tricky subject these days. You already have a lot of expenses associated with your big day and it can be easy to put your wedding favours on the back burner only to run out of budget in the lead up to the day.
You don’t want your guests to leave empty handed but you’re not about to run out and spend all your money on gifts for them. So what do you do? If you’re feeling crafty, these homemade tea bags with personalised tags and packages are a beautiful little gift that your guests can enjoy the next day… most likely while nursing a hangover!
What you’ll need
Stapler & staples
String (baker’s twine is best)
Printed tags for the packaging & tag
What to do
Step 1. Cut your coffee filter into a rectangle.
Step 2. Put a spoonful of tea in the centre of your filter paper.
Step 3. Fold both sides over and get them to overlap (so that no tea falls out later on).
Step 4. Fold the bottom edge over about 1cm, then fold it up, leaving 1 – 2cm of the top edge at the top.
Step 5. Fold the top edge over and make it nice and neat.
Step 6. Cut about 10cm of string and staple it to the top of your tea bag. Cut out two heart tags and glue them to the end of your string, back to back.
Step 7. Print your package labels out in the centre of an A4 piece of paper and put your tea bag right in the centre.
Step 8. Fold the paper over so that it overlaps in the centre.
Step 9. Fold the bottom of the package up so there is a third of the paper left at the top, then cut the top of the page into a triangle to make it look like an envelope.
Step 10. Use a sticker to hold the envelope flap in place.
Make enough for all your guests and they’ll love the little treat the next day!
