Christmas Tea, Card, & Gift Bags

Hopefully as you read this, we're getting ready for school. We haven't been all week due to inclement weather (snow Sunday night that never melted followed by freezing rain Wed. night/Thurs. morning). I have missed my students and know they're disappointed not to be with their friends before Christmas.

Here's a little holiday cheer I made for the dear ladies with whom I work. Do you absolutely love that tea cup? With the adorable and afforadable A Sip stamp set, it could be a tea cup, a coffee cup, or even a cup of hot cocoa! (At only $7.95, you couldn't ask for a sweeter deal!)

The cards have two pockets inside that hold two tea bags.

Lisa Stenz totally inspired me (though I wish I had checked hers out again; I like her construction better!). I'm entering the card in the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week: holiday cards.

Finally, here are the gift bags the girls will be delivering to their teachers today. They are filled with all kinds of goodies and were simple to make. A few stamps from my "I Believe" stamp set in Cocoa, Cranberry, and New England Ivy on brown paper lunch sacks and tags... Easy peasy!

Supplies for card from Close To My Heart: A Sip and Christmas Melodies stamp set; Cranberry, New England Ivy, and Grey Wool inks; Mistletoe paper pack; random retired Cranberry & NEI paper
Other: circle punch for cut-out template; tea bags
Supplies for gift bags from Close To My Heart: I Believe and No Peeking stamp sets; Cranberry, New England Ivy, and Cocoa inks
Other: brown paper lunch sacks, manilla shipping tags, staples


  1. Love the cards, I think I will have to borrow that idea! And the gift bags are fun, too. Hugs!

  2. That is too cute! Stamping on those lunch sacks are cheap, quick, and easy. I know those lucky teachers will appreciate all their goodies. Big hugs...


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
