Make Your Own Teabag

The weather’s changed and the best way to stay warm this fall is to cozy up in a wool sweater with a nice cup of hot tea. There are lots of delicious teas to pick from, though not all of them are going to come in cozy handmade teabags.

A great fall or winter gift, handmade teabags are easy to make and a wonderful way to show your dedication and love for someone you care.

Supplies:

  • Coffee filters
  • Loose-leaf tea
  • String
  • Needle and thread
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Stapler

Instructions:

  1. Take your coffee filter and using the flat middle (instead of the frilly sides), cut two rectangular shapes.
  2. Using a needle and thread, or if you have one, a sewing machine, sew three sides of the rectangles together. Make sure the stitches are close together so no tealeaves escape into your tea.
  3. Fill the pocket with loose-leaf tea. 1 to 2 teaspoons should work depending on the size of your rectangles. Think about adding a pinch of your favorite spice to customize your tea.
  4. Sew the top edge of the rectangle to close the tealeaves in the pocket.
  5. Move the leaves into the bottom portion of the teabag so you can fold the top part of the bag. Fold two triangles so there’s a point at the top of the teabag. Then fold that point down so it touches the bottom of the triangles you just folded.
  6. Take your piece of string and staple the folds and the string all together.
  7. To make your teabag tag, cut a small piece of paper any shape you’d like. Traditionally teabags have square tags, but think about doing something a little different: a heart, a bird, a bike, whatever strikes you. Add your own drawing, attach an old postage stamp, you can eve add a bead if you’d like.
  8. Staple the string to your tag.
  9. Enjoy your cup of tea!

If any of you guys do join, I'm startrekzooka on sploder. It is similiar to scratch except it's a bit more accessible if you get me. You can even create your graphics for your game creators or just for personal artwork pretty much. Or compete your games to be the best pretty much. I haven't talked to the owner in a while tho. He's been busy making a 3D RPG Adventure creator with the create-your-own-rpg-and-dialogue tool which I assume will be out in the next 6 months or so.

Everywhere I look I see chaos, destruction, but I can still see the beauty. The beauty of love, that pure love along with the flowers blossoming, the trees, grass, and so much more... But my one question is... why do I feel like something is about to happen? (This is a story I have been creating in my head and it is only one version of it, but all of the versions are around the same time period.. I hope you like it.. Also, I will be updating it around every Sunday to extend it and see what happens)
