My bud, Susan, from Florida sent me an envelop filled with tea bags! Here's a note she included with her tea bags.
I played with tea bags several, several years ago and only used a bag in a small 12"x12" piece. For the life of me I can't locate it but some day I will! Anyway, I wanted to do something quick with the tea bags for the work Susan put forth drinking all that tea! So I made some bookmarks!
|This is either the front or the back of the bookmarks. HA|
|Ditto on above! HA..only the picture is upside down!|
I started off stamping some of the tea bags. I happen to have some matching tags so I cut out the center/circles on four of them.
Once I had the circles cut out I laid two tea bags wrong sides together and glued them under the circle edges.
After the glue dried, I laid tags together (wrong sides together) and stitched around the entire tag on my sewing machine. The cardboard wasn't that heavy and stitched easily.
These were fun to work on and I sent the beige one to Susan to thank her. Although, now I need to do something with all the rest of the tea bags...I may not be thanking her! Now that I'm finished taking pictures of utility boxes (for a day or two!) I can get back to showing some of my art work! Maybe!
Today we are headed to my son's to celebrate a belated birthday and 'leaving for college' for our grand daughter, Amber! She leaves for college on Wednesday! Sniff, sniff! I am excited ONLY because she'll be getting her 'exploding box' I put together for her!
Doesn't look like much but wait until you see a video I did! I worked on this for several weeks this summer! Keeping you in suspense? Hope so! Stay tuned!
