DIY Valentine’s Tea Bags

January 13, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Food for the Soul

Hi guys! Valentine’s day is coming closer, and I’m excited, because it’s Funkyitme’s 2nd Valentine’s Day!
Last year I designed some vintage printables among other things… this year I’m starting out with a cute heart shaped tea bag DIY!

This is super easy, so easy, that I didn’t even make step by step instructions.


❤ Cut open the tea bag and collect the tea in a bowl or glass.

❤ Lay the opened tea bag flat and cut out a heart shape.

❤ Sew the edges by hand, before you fully close it fill it with the tea you collected in a bowl.

❤ Download printable, cut out the hear shapes, cut original tag off and attach the heart to the tea bag string.

❤ Those heart sugar cubes are easy to make, just take some food coloring and paint them with a small brush. ❤Download

Really love this Valentine’s idea!

See you later!
