DIYValentine’s Day DIY: Heart-Shaped Tea Bags!

Because Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about you and your boyfriend!

This Valentine’s Day DIY is perfect for sharing with your BFF’s, your mom, your grandma… or any tea lover you know. Pick out your favorite loose-leaf tea (or blend your own) and have fun creating personalized messages on the little tea tags.

TIPS: I used a sewing machine for this project, but you could easily sew these by hand as well. Just use short stitches so the tea doesn’t fall out. When you’re done sewing, leave a double-length of thread approx. 4″ long; this will serve as the string for the tea tag!


What are you making for Valentine’s Day?

 

DIYDIY: Christmas Chain Bracelet

‘Tis the season for Christmas-y crafting, so somewhere in-between stuffing stockings and hanging twinkle lights, why not make a cute little holiday treat for yourself (or friends!)? Just dust off those skills from your elementary school days, and get into the spirit with this paper chain-inspired cutie!

 

The things you’ll need:

Liquid Stitch (or a similar permanent, CLEAR drying adhesive)

Ribbon (as many or as few as you like!)

Fabric Scissors

Optional: tweezers, cotton swabs, patience

 

First things first: Snip your ribbon into 1.5″-ish pieces. It’s helpful to do this ahead of time so you don’t lose track of the size.

Then: Spread a little glue on the end of the ribbon (it helps to use a cotton swab for precision), then loop it into a little circle and press the ends together. It’s okay to get a little sloppy, the glue dries clear. Voila! The chain begins…

Keep it up: Loop another piece of ribbon through the circle you just made, then repeat the process above until your chain has reached the desired length. This is where a pair of tweezers comes in handy to swoop into those tiny spaces.

That’s all folks: Yep, it’s that easy! When you’re done, and your glue is dry, simply snip another small piece of ribbon and tie the ends together in a neat little knot (or a bow, if you want to get all fancy), and slip it onto your festive little wrist!
