Tea Bag Party Favor

Here is a very simple but sweet party favor. It is not my original idea. I was at a pre-Christmas luncheon and these were the favors. I have taken a lot of pictures but I am hoping they will give you the basic idea.

6" doily, I found these in the new Wilton cake decorating section at Walmart.

Fold in half

Create this little extra fold, do not go past the center. (This creates a "pocket")

Now fold across the middle the other way.

Add some glue along the pocket fold, all the way to the outer edge.

See how it "plumps" it up.

Now you will embelish. I used very inexpensive silk flowers.

The glue dots worked quite well here.

Add the flower and ribbon. (what a pain to tie that little bow!)

And here is your tea-bag party favor.

Very cute! I will have to have a party to use those!!! Hey, if you ever have to go to the DMV pop in a cross the hall to say hello, I'll be there!

Hi there! I saw your link on Roxy's blog and just had to visit as pink is my favorite color! This favor idea is very cute. We have many tea parties at our house (as we have three little girls) so I am sure this is one thing we will be trying! Blessings, Kristin
