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!

Love it or hate it, the crazy theory of Flat Earth is gaining a lot of popularity and movement world wide. What's your opinion? Remember, regardless of what anyone says, keep an open mind and don't bash. I'm curious to see why people believe the way they do, or if they have facts and evidence to support their claims. So, do you believe the Earth is flat....or spherical?

No, AlphaT won't be missed. And he totally isn't tearing up right now.  Thank you. I know it sounds unoriginal, but getting to know all of you has been an absolute privilege. Each of you made my time here worthwhile, and it's nice knowing that I've done the same for you all.  Goodbye!

You're like a sister to me, and I couldn't imagine my life without someone like you. N is for Neon... You glow so bright, like neon lights. You make everything seem happier. O is for Outgoing...  W is for Wonder... F is for  L is for  A is for  K is for  E is for  A is for  N is for  G is for Graceful...  E is for  L is for  K is for  I is for Intelligent...

You know, I agree with your theory. I don't think I can put it into the well-thought and eloquent wording you did, but as vast as the human mind is, each individual one has its limits. Everyone clearly thinks different of what is wrong and what is right - Hitler did think that his actions were a good thing, didn't he?  The most evil thing I could think of certainly isn't KW appropriate. Then, expanding on that further, I figured that murder is probably one of the worst things a human can do. But then that got me thinking: what  if it's the other way around? Or, what if there is something even worse than both of those? Everything else that came to mind probably, most likely, isn't a KW kind of topic - and I'm sure my brain can't even come up with everything else disgraceful. Therefore, I don't think I can determine which is worse, as there are many things I find putrid - and some I can't even think of - and they're all quite horrible. So then the most good thing I thought of was angels. They're pure and holy, right? What can be even greater than that? The Lord, of course. To someone who believe ins Him, who or what is more just and righteous than that? This got me wondering what those who do not believe in Him would say. Charity work, perhaps? A newborn child who is yet to have experienced the awfulness of the world? An innocent domestic animal whose perception of the world is far different from ours? This was definitely really thought-provoking. I might have to think about this further sometime in the future.
