Pootles' Way Back Wednesday Tea Bag Holder Folder

I do love wandering around in my own past! It’s fun to go back and revisit old projects and it’s a nice change from designing new projects. I like to take it easy sometimes and working with my own creations is great fun to do!

I’ve gone back to March 2014 when I came up with the infamous Tea Bag Folder Holder! yes, I always get ‘folder’ and ‘holder’ the wrong way around when I speak it out loud…. *waits for everyone to finish trying it themselves…!*

Last time around I used beautiful floral papers that were from the Sale a Bration catalogue and I decided to stick with the Floral theme by using the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I think it works just as well as the original! And yes, they are the same 2 tea bags that I used the first time around. Seriously, tea is weird stuff. I just don’t drink it!

Anyway, please do enjoy the video and I wanted to show the 2 different versions of it. The one with the extra adhesive and the one without. If you watch the video, it makes sense….!

Oh and because I’m always asked, this is the lady who I buy my magnets from. She ships all over the world.

    THANK YOU so much for selling me the framelits and die. I do make a ton of treat holders for every occasion. Well, even just because. Lol. I appreciate getting them so much!

  2. Wonderful project – thank you, Sam!

    Could you clarify why the tea bags are back to back?

  3. Thanks Sam!!
    Today I went way back over all your designs on Pinterest.
    I was looking for a way to package crosses from the Holy Land for Christmas this year. I decided on the bag you did on September 28, 2014. I’ll be using the wide striped ribbon that I still have. I’ll make the bags to size with the wrapping paper SU had that is similar to the bag you did.

    This is one of my favorite projects of ALL TIME!! I have a Mother’s Day tea for my MIL and SILs every year and this is one of the projects I’ve made for them:) TFS!!!!!!!

  5. Gina Nathan says:

    I think this was the first project of yours that I saw. That was me hooked! I love 3D projects.

  6. Marlene Mirabella says:

    Hi Sam,
    I love your videos.
    On your video you say the envelopes are size 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, but your written directions say 5 x 5.
    Also your DSP pieces say 3 x 1 3/
    Which I think you ment to say 3 x 1 3/4
    * I would Love it if you could add the measurements to the video while you were making it,printed on the screen. That way we don’t have to stop the video and go to the link to check to see if we heard you correct on the measurements.
    Let me know what you think.

  7. Oh I do love this little gift. I’m not a tea person either and I’m trying to think of other little things I could put in those envelopes. So darn cute!
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  8. To Sam and Marlene, I made the envelopes using both the 51/2″ DSP size and the 5″ DSP size and it is the 5″X5″ measurement that is correct. I also had to adjust the layering DSP sizes for the outside as well. Other than those 2 minor adjustments my project turned out great!!!!! Thanks for the fabulous idea.
