Cookies & Tea for 2 Gift Set Hybrid Project by Amanda

Hi all! I have Amanda Pratt guesting with me as a hybrid team member, and she has created a really cute project using my collab w/Meg Mullens, My Cup of Tea.

Follow along and enjoy the step-by-step! :)

Cookies & Tea for 2 Gift Set
Edgy by Traci Reed
Mini-Cinnamon Roll Cookies (or any cookies, but these are cute & nommy), 2 Tea Bags
cardstock, adhesive, stapler, glitter, sticky gems, ribbon scrap, scissors (large & small), small cutting mat and a ruler

Open templates.
Following instructions, clip with papers & embellish with lots of cute ellies. Use favorite quote or small saying to fill up the 'frame'. I chose this one:

Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.
-J Jonker ca 1670

For tea bag holders: I like to use the whole sheet of cardstock when printing, so duplicated the layers & flipped 180* to fit 2 tea bag holders on 1 letter sized sheet of cardstock.

Print on cardstock.

Cut out pieces, score & fold according to directions from template.
I don't have a fancy scoring tool, so I use the small cutting mat, small scissors & a ruler to score on the lines where indicated in the template.

Use adhesive to put the pieces together on the flaps where indicated.
Adorn holders with a bit of glitter & small sticky gems.

Take small scrap of ribbon & attach it to the tag with stapler. Then attach ribbon to tea bag.

Fill food box with cookies & put the tea bags inside the holders, seal up & give as a cute little gift.
