I' ve been searching some inspiring images and ideas related with tea...as you know I'm a great tea lover :)
I want to share with you this fun freebie that I found in the Creatures Comfort's Blog, she creates for  all...this Printable Valentine Teabag Wrappers and Tea Tags. These would be perfect to give to friends and coworkers. Perhaps you might package up a few in a sweet little teacup and present it as a gift.
There are 4 ways to assemble the teabag wrappers. The one shown in the tutorial below is the most time involved (stitching by hand) but the results are my favorite. Other methods would include using tape, glue or a sewing machine. Pick the method that will work best for you and have fun!

You will need:
color printer
standard weight paper
scissors
tea bags in the flavors of your choosing (the ones that come with strings and tags attached are best)
needle
embroidery or standard thread (I used white, but you can use any color you'd like)
Pen (for addressing your Valentine and noting the tea flavor)
For other methods of assembly (noted above) you may need (optional) tape, gluestick, or a sewing machine and thread.




Step-by-step tutorial:
Print the wrappers and tags and cut each one out. Gather your supplies.
Carefully remove the paper tag that came on your tea (leaving the string attached). Thread the string (that is attached to your teabag) through your needle. Stitch the heart tea tag onto the end of the string using one or two stitches and secure with a knot. Trim the end of the string if needed.
Fold your tea bag wrapper in half and write the tea flavor in the box on the back. Include your Valentine's name if you'd like.
Cut a length of embroidery floss about 38" in length and knot at the end. Thread onto your needle. Begin stitching your paper wrapper by inserting the needle into the bottom (folded edge) of your wrapper (with the knot on the inside). You can use any stitch that is comfortable to you. I stitched around the edge because I like the effect it gives.
Sew up the first side (do not cut the thread). Wrap the string (attached to your teabag) around your teabag so that the heart sits as shown.
Insert your teabag inside your wrapper and then carefully continue stitching until you've sewn all three sides. Knot at the end.
Give as is OR...
Present it with a teacup or mug that can be used over and over again.


I hope you enjoyed this little project. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


En ESPAÑOL:


He estado buscando algunas imágenes inspiradoras e ideas relacionadas con el té ... como ustedes saben yo soy una gran amante del té :)
Quiero compartir con ustedes este divertido freebie que encontré en el blog de Creature Comforts, en el cual ella crea para todos unos hermosos envoltorios de bolsitas y etiquetas de té imprimibles. Estos serán perfectos para regalar a amigos y compañeros de trabajo. Tal vez ustedes puedan preparar un paquete con unas cuantas bolsitas y presentarlo como un regalo.
Hay cuatro maneras de montar los contenedores de la bolsita de té. El que se muestra en el tutorial de arriba es el que más tiempo involucra (cosido a mano), pero los resultados son mis favoritos. Otros métodos  incluyen el uso de cinta, pegamento o una máquina de coser. Elije el método que mejor funcione para tí y a divertirse!


Materiales:
Impresora a color
Tijeras
Bolsas de té
Aguja
Hilo de bordar
Lápiz (para anotar el sabor del té)


Tutorial paso a paso:
Imprime y luego recorta las etiquetas y sobres.
Retira con cuidado la etiqueta de papel que viene con la bolsita de té (dejando el hilo adjunto). Enhebra en la aguja este hilo y cose el extremo del corazón de papel. Ahora la bolsita de té tiene una etiqueta de corazon!
Dobla el sobrecito de papel y escribe el nombre del blend que escogiste.
Corta 1 metro (aprox.) de hilo de bordar y hazle un nudo en un extremo.
Comienza a coser continuamente hasta cerrar 3 lados dejando sólo un lado sin coser.
introduce la bolsita de té en el sobre…
Y listo! ya tienes tu blend especial para el día de los enamorados.
Puedes acompañarlo de galletas para degustar con el té…
