Customised Teabag Tags...Free Romantic Miniatures Printable...

 
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!

  6. HI Mimi,
    Another cute idea......they really look pretty, and would be very nice to use if you were having someone over for tea and cookies. I got some teabags as a favor at a wedding shower years ago, and they were called scripture teabags and they had a scripture verse
    written on each label. Loved them, in fact, I
    still have one that I put on something I made for a wall decor in my
    kitchen years ago.......
    Hope you are having a good day......we are just chilling, relaxing and
    enjoying........
    Blessings, Nellie

  8. These are so pretty, Mimi! I'm not sure what happened when you tried to link up to my party. I checked everything and it all seems to be working. Now and then these things do get a quirk but I've had pretty good success with mine. Perhaps you can try again?

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  9. Hi Mimi

    Sorry I have been missing for a little while, but sometimes I just need to step back from the world. Things have been very hectic here both time wise and with DD and DP and holiday planning as well as buying a car. DP is now working away from home Mon to Fri so is gone for 5 nights of the week, but alas it is good while it lasts....possible up to November.

    Your teabags look too good to use, should just be for decoration. Always so lovely to see what you have been up too. I had a quick look at yesterdays entry and it was incredible. Love your work.

    Take care
    Love Aly xxx

    1. Dear Aly. I totally understand the whole stepping back from the world thing. Work for your DP is important, and these things are always just a 'moment in time'. Think of the good regular income and feel blesses Sweetie. Love, Mimi xxx

  11. Such fun! I'm mostly a coffee drinker myself, but I'll bet my daughter would be over the moon for tea bags customized with her favorite music groups!

  19. Those are so pretty! And one of my favorite artists whom I discovered the year I spent in Bordeaux, France during high school. Before I left France, I visited the Louvre and bought two Fragonard prints to bring home and frame.

  21. Oh dear!! I was an Art History major in college (Humanities: Art History and Philosophy) and this was one of my favorite paintings. It was quite naughty at the time it was painted. I love Fragonard's treatment of trees and vegetation. Light, airy and so beautiful. Thanks!!! http://millerhausfrau.blogspot.com/
