PCC: Tea Sleeve Tutorial (12-22)

Hi everyone!

I’m over on the Paper Crafts Connection today, sharing some last-minute ideas for quick and easy Christmas gifts.

One of the projects I’m sharing over there is this Tea Sleeve packet. I want to share with you today how to make one like it.

Here’s what you need:

* One 3″ x 9″ piece of heavy patterned paper (think cardstock weight) or cardstock

* A strong adhesive, like two-way tape or glue

*  Tea packets. The packet will fit five to six Stash tea packets.

* String or ribbons and anything you want to decorate it up with.

Here’s what you do:

1. Start by cutting a 3″ x 9″ piece of patterned paper or cardstock. You’ll notice I’m using a different paper for demostration purposes.

2. Score the paper on the 1″, 2″, 5″ and 6″ marks.

And here’s a graphic for you, too. Know that when it comes to graphics,  Paper Crafts Lone Design Man I am not. 😉

3. Fold it up along the score lines.

4. Add adhesive.

5. Bundle up some tea for the sleeve. You can put them in freely or use a string or a piece of paper to make a band to put around them.

6.  Slide the tea in the sleeve.

7. Finish it off by decorating the exterior of the sleeve as you see fit.

That’s all I have for you today. Be back again soon!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Cute! A little package of flavoured tea is such a sweet little ‘just for you’ pressie. Little more than a card but not large enough to make anyone feel obligated to reciprocate or uncomfortable! Love it!
    Thanks for sharing and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas!!! :o)
