Remember those Free Romantic Miniature Printables I posted yesterday?
Well, here's another use for them.
Of course you can use them for embellishing Clothes Pegs, decorating plain gift bags, and for making greeting cards, but it was only when I was making myself my usual morning cuppa, that I realised these are the perfect size to make pretty teabag tags.
Now before you go thinking I need a life, let's remember that sometimes the simple things are the ones that are remembered. I know I'd rather look at Jean-Louis Fragonards Girl on a Swing, than a tag that says Bushells Extra Strong, in the morning. And in the afternoon for that matter.
Not only that, but if you're really strapped for cash, a dozen customised teabags, and a thrifted teacup and saucer, might just melt someones heart for under five bucks!
I found that the easiest way to apply these, was simply to hold the picutre in your preferred place up against the existing tag (unwrap the string first) and flip it over, cutting from the back so you can see where the edges need trimming. Glue into place using a solid glue like Glue Stick, wrap the string back around the teabag, and you're done.
Slip them into a cellophane bag, then inside an embellished gift bag, and see if they don't make someone smile...even perhaps you.
I'm off to do some Chanel themed ones for a good friend. Interlocking C's on teabags? Yes please!
