It is a great pleasure to me to make little gifts for the ladies in my Stampers 6 groups and it's always fun to think up new ideas. One thing I've been enjoying lately is making envelopes with my diagonal Simply Scored tool, and that gave me the idea for this little teabag favour:
The envelope is just 3 1/4" square and it's decorated with this pretty doily paper from the beautiful Attic Boutique range. I masked and sponged a background panel and topped it with the pretty label from the Tea Shoppe stamp set. The cups from the set were stamped, cut out with my sharp paper snips and stacked on top and I added one of the sentiments.
The back of the envelope fastens by tucking the flap into this label. Tea Shoppe is perfect for these kinds of projects because there are lots of labels and sentiments to choose from. When you open the envelope...
... you find a teabag tucked inside and you may also notice that I lined the envelope with the same paper as I used on the front.
Here they are ready to be tucked into my lovely ladies' parcels along with all their lovely goodies!

My teenaged son came downstairs late yesterday morning and announced that his mate would be round in a minute. "Is Daddy having a lie in?" he asked. "Because I don't want to disturb him." - his room is on the same floor as our room and his father's office. I stared at him. "It's nearly 11 o'clock," I said. "Your father has been at work for over two hours!" I didn't know whether to be proud at having such a thoughtful son or horrified that he has such little knowledge of a working day!
It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow and I have a set of fast cards to show you. Hope to see you then.
