Photo: How-To: Custom Valentine’s Day Tea Bags http://felting.craftgossip.com/2014/02/14/how-to-custom-valentines-day-tea-bags/ #craft #DIYHere is a last minute Valentine gift that will impress your tea drinkers a “Custom Valentine’s Day Tea Bags”.  Alex of “North Story” is a coffee girl through and through. She drinks tea when she is sick or maybe we all know Green tea is one of those things that we know is good for us so Alex will drink it but she is still dreaming of a vanilla latte the whole time.  She has many friends that drink tea like her daughter’s teacher and her husband’s Grandmother; so we get this lovely project because of them.  She has an amazing tutorial, supply list and pictures enjoy! I love it Alex and I too am a coffee drinker.  Thanks for the great idea.

Belle’s Valentine Bookmarks

Source: www. spoonful.com – Cindy Littlefield

rose bookmarksTotal Time 30 minutes or less

Ages school-age

Inspired by the movie Beauty & the Beast: A princess who likes to read as much as Belle does can always use a little help holding her place. With long pipe cleaner stems that tuck neatly between the pages, these bookmark roses will do the trick. But more than that, they’ll let the recipients know how much you hold them dear — each of the petals is a pretty paper heart.

What you’ll need
Heart template
Scrapbook paper
Glue dots
Green pipe cleaners
Ribbon

How to make it

1. Print out the template and cut out the pieces.

2. For each rose, cut out four hearts from scrapbook paper.

3. Turn one of the hearts upside down to resemble one of the center petals of a rose bud, and use a glue dot to stick the top of a pipe cleaner stem in place, as shown. Place a second heart on top of the first, matching up all the edges and pressing down firmly to adhere it to the glue dot. Use your fingertips to curl the tips of the hearts.

4. Fold each of the remaining two hearts in half vertically. Fold back the rounded sides of the hearts, as shown, and then fold down the tips.

5. Sandwich the sides of the center petals between the folded hearts, using glue dots to hold them in place.
