A Tea-rific Template

I am lovin' this little teabag template. I keep thinking of all the different papers and stamps that could be used with it. There are so many possible uses: gift cards, little notes, placement on a card or layout...(I have an actual teabag in this one!) Then there are the little surprises you can put inside such as the clever ideas posted by our Ginger Penny or our Visiting Artist Deb.  You'll find their work and lots of other ideas by the Gingers and our other two Visiting Artists, Vicki and Evelyn, at Gingersnap Creations' Random Redhead challenge today. 

If you'd like to make one of these teabags, you'll find all the information, including the template, at Gingersnap Creations. This challenge will run until February 13 so you have plenty of time to create a little something fabby and link it up at GC87. You just may be the next random winner or one of the Ginger Gems!

Materials:
Graphic 45 double sided paper: Playtimes Past Collection: Hopscotch
Graphic 45 Playtimes Past Collection Tags. Note: I cut up the tag, using part of it on the flap with baker's twine. I cut out the teapot portion and backed it with more of the hopscotch paper.
Tim Holtz for Ranger Distress Ink Tea Dye (you knew that was coming!)

Hey! I made a comment last night as soon as I saw this! This is wonderful, Helene! Love the concept, love the colors. I wanted to stay up and make one when I saw it at bedtime. Alas, I could not stay up until 2 AM like some people I know!! LOL~ I will check out Gingersnap Creations later today. The string is cute and I love the pleated bottom. This is SO ME! THANKS for the heads up, sweetie!!
