A Greeting Card, tea bag and treat holder - all in one

2.24.2014

Last Friday in class the ladies and I made these adorable little greeting cards. They are a three way treat, actually: a greeting card, tea bag and treat holder!

This project design was originally shared by Dawn Olfcheske.
Wouldn't this make a great little pick-me-up for someone who is under the weather? Some of the ladies suggested that this would also make a great gift card holder. You could also replace the chocolate/candy stick with a tube of lip gloss or a cute little pen. So many ideas!!

To create this little treat, start with a piece of card stock cut to 7-1/2" x 4-1/4". 
  1. Score/fold in half to create the card base. (Finished card size is 3-3/4 x 4-1/4".)
  2. Using the Simply Scored Tool and Diagonal Plate, score at 4-7/8". Fold, burnish and adhere the flap to the inside of the card. If you do not have this tool, either cut or fold down the top right of the card front to mimic the sample shown.
  3. Decorate the front and inside of your card.
  4. Punch two holes vertically in the lower right portion of your card. (Go through both the front and back of the card.)
  5. Use ribbon to hold treat in place.
  6. Tuck a tea bag in the pocket.

Optional: if you don't care to write a message inside, adhere the bottom of the card to create a closed pocket. You'll be able to insert the tea bag without it falling through the bottom, but you will not be able to access any messages inside.
