Mother's Day Tea

This DIY Mother’s Day gift idea by Mae Armstrong is perfect for the mother or grandmother who loves tea! Using PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps (Topiary and Asian Icon collections), Mae has stamped to create tea bag packaging and custom tea bags.  How thoughtful and unique! 

Mae started this project by cutting all of the tea tags using her Silhouette SD.   She stamped with her Asian Symbols – PSA Essentialsnewest Peel & Stick packs available only at Smithsonian Stores.  Then she used a embroidery needle to string the crochet yarn through the tea packet.

Loop through and knot the ends to secure the tag.

Mae also picked a favor box to hold the tea bags. 

After folding and gluing the box, Mae added a paper doily and glued it at the top of the box.

She also stamped a decorative tag from PSA Topiary (“Happy Mother’s Day") and Asian Symbols (the tea pot) and secured it with a three-ply pink crochet yarn.

Stuff the favor box and seal.

Mae also created a matching Mother's Day card to match the gift – how perfect!   

What are you making or giving for Mother’s Day this year?
