Create Heart Teabags

With Thursday being Valentine's Day, I wanted to put something together for a couple of close friends. T&I really don't celebrate Valentine's Day, because our anniversary is so close to it, so I think of it as a time to show those who are close to me that they are special.

These teabags, which are made out of coffee filters, are really easy to put together. So let's not delay!

Fold an even number of coffee filters in half and cut half of a heart.

Now you have multiple hearts!

With two hearts together, hand-sew around the outside of the heart starting at the top center. In this photos, I used thread but I liked the two strains of embroidery thread better. (See the beginning or end photos.) Sew 3/4 of the way around the heart.

Take a teaspoon of whatever kind of loose tea you would like to use and insert in between the two hearts. I used a Keemun I had lying around. If you wanted to make something special, try adding a little cinnamon or filling the bags with loose chai tea!

Once you have the tea inside, semi-carefully finish sewing the rest of the teabag up! Don't cut the end yet!

To make the string, simply tie the embroidery floss you have been sewing with off at the center, and then cut to whatever length you would like the tab to be. I cut a rectangle out of some card stock, folded it in half around the end of the string, and Mod Podged the two sides together. Then I trimmed off the points on one side.

And there you have it! I'm excited to include these with my Valentine's this year!

(Sorry about that dirty-looking mug, yikes!)
