Try This Sweet Songbirds Tea Bag Match Book Favor You Can Make Loads of for a Tea Party, Holiday Party, or Any Occasion Really!

Gosh, I haven't shared a fun, easy little project in a long time. With Christmas on the horizon, the Sweet Songbirds stamp set, the Decorative Circle Punch and some soon to be released Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) inspired me to create this Tea Match Book Favor that you can adapt for most any occasion and use what you have on hand.

Follow along and make one today! Here's the basic information for constructing one.

Cardstock color of your choice - cut 3" x 8 1/2". Score at 3 1/2" and 7 1/2".
Piece of Basic White for inner layer cut 2 7/8" x 3 3/8"
Stamp sentiment of your choice in ink of your choice on Basic White piece. I used Celebrate Tags stamp set with Real Red ink.
Adhere stamped layer with 1/16" margin away from top fold as shown in photo. 

Flipping holder over, you will need two pieces of matching Designer Series Paper. I used the Joy of Christmas DSP.
Cut one piece 2 7/8" x 3 3/8" and the other 7/8" x 3 3/8". Adhere as shown in photo with 1/16" margins all around.

Create your focal point image using the Decorative Circle Punch. Finished image will be raised on dimensionals on Match Book front. I used Real Red ink, Memento Ink, and retired 1/4" black and white gingham ribbon.

Flip the project over and place a staple centered from each side and about 1/4" up from the bottom fold.
Slip the bottom of the tea bag into the bottom folded up section.

Apply one glue dot at top of Basic White inner layer to attach a tea bag top and to keep it in place.

Tuck the front flap in behind the bottom flap and there you have it! A Tea Bag Match Book Favor!

Thanks for giving this little project a go! I hope you'll make more for an easy favor to give out.

Try out this fun idea with this set too!
