Hi there friends! So as you can tell, I like making gifts for people. This little Valentine’s bag is just too cute. By the time Valentine’s Day arrives I will have 3 grandchildren, and I am making one of these bags for each, even though the third will be a newborn. This is also the second gift bag I have made fr Valentine’s Day. See the end screen videos to see my candy bag for Valentine’s gifts!

Create a Bright and Decorative Tea Gift

by Renee Zarate

Create a Bright and Decorative Tea Gift
When I was young my Grandmother’s favorite way to fix any problem in life was to have a cup of tea. As I’ve gotten older I still love tea time in the afternoon. This mini Tea Journal is for the tea lover in your life. There are spots to insert special bags of tea and small pages to journal about their must-have teas or maybe keep track of fun adventures with other tea lovers.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 3 hours


Step 1

Create a master board using Tsukineko’s Radiant Neon inks, your favorite stamps and a spray bottle of water, cut into 4” by 4” squares. Stamp a teacup image on the paper. Use a Micron pen to decorate with doodled designs, color in with Memento Markers and ink from Radiant Neon inkers. Apply Shimmer Goosebumps on top of the colors on the teacup and allow to dry. Attach the decorated panel to a 4 inch square canvas. Make another teacup image and affix to a matching canvas. One canvas is for the front cover of the journal and the second one is for the back cover. Make additional teacup squares but do not attach to a canvas, these will be glued down inside of the journal.

Step 2

Cut a piece of Bristol paper to measure 4” x 16”, fold accordion style to create 4 inch sections. Attach the twine to tie the book closed underneath the folded piece of paper to hide the ends of the twine. Adhere to the inside of the canvases on either side using Tear It Tape. Small charms can be attached to one or both ends of the twine. Create additional tea cups squares to include inside of the journal. These can all be made to look different by drawing designs on the stamped image or by using different colors, they can be matted or attached to a little hidden fold out book which becomes a journal within a journal.

Step 3

Adhere the extra teacup squares inside the journal. Teacup images can be on either side of the accordion fold, there is a front and a back that can be enhanced depending on how much ephemera there is to add in. Tea bags can include as a surprise. This can be considered a journal since there are blank pages within, these are waiting to include thoughts about favorite teas or favorite tea time adventures.

Step 4

When not in use fold the book up and tie the cord around it to keep it closed.
