DIY Tea Party Favors

DIY-Tea-Party-Favors

My mom and I recently hosted a mini bridal shower in celebration of my big sisters’ upcoming nuptials. The theme: a modern tea party, complete with delicious eats, unexpected decor, and really great people. Though the gathering was intended to be small and intimate, I didn’t want to send our guests home empty handed and needed a way to thank them for joining us on that sunny Saturday afternoon. Enter: a simple tea party favour. A mini box (shaped as a milk carton, no less!) filled with everything your guests will need to steep a cup of warm deliciousness at home. I wasn’t originally planning on sharing them (DIY is not exactly my forte), but I’m really happy with how they turned out and I thought they were too cute to keep to myself!

materials

treat carton, assembled
2 small corked vials
Embroidery thread (I used 4 colours)
3 small tags (I bought mine at Michaels but they’d be easy to make with cardstock & a hole punch)
Loose leaf tea (I ordered chai, peppermint and english breakfast from Tea Sante
Paper crinkle (I used white)
paper tea filters
NOTE: these instructions are for making 1 favour. Make sure to multiply the material, depending on how many you’re making!

instructions

step-1
Fill each vial with a different type of loose leaf tea and seal it tightly with the cork

step-2
Write the tea type on each tag and tie them around the vials necks using a small string of embroidery thread.

step-3
Grab your paper tea filters and roll them into a tiny scroll, securing with a different colour embroidery thread.

step-4
Tuck a small handful of paper crinkle into the bottom of your assembled treat carton, add your tea tubes and tea filters and seal. 

step-5
Grab an 18″ length of each of your four embroidery thread colours and wrap them around your tea carton twice, securing with a knot and incorporating a tiny, hand written, thank you tag.
