Hi Everybody! I have a really cute craft for you today - My Tea Lover's Bookmarks! Don't reading and tea just go together perfectly? It's like you can't really enjoy a book or a magazine properly without a really good cup of tea! I love cute bookmarks and have lots of them, all marking special and favorite pages in different books. Just like every book holds a special memory, so does the bookmark! Here is how you can make your own Tea Lover's Bookmark!
All you need for this craft is some colored felt, thick thread and regular dark thread, thick card stock, and a hot glue gun. Out of colored felt, cut out these pieces: two identical mug shapes, and two identical handle shapes, polka dots/stripes/any other shapes you want, the tea piece to look like the tea in the mug, and two identical tea bag tags. Cut out a mug shape (slightly smaller than the felt mug shapes) out of card stock (this will go inside the bookmark to keep it flat) and using a glue gun, stick it on top of the back mug piece. Stick on the two handle pieces one on top of the other, then attach them to the back mug piece. Decorate the top mug piece with cut out shapes, and attach it on top of the back piece using a glue gun and sealing all the edges well. Stitch the word "tea" onto the tea bag tag using some dark brown/black thread. Then, using the hot glue gun, attach thick white thread to the back of that tag, and stick the bottom tag piece onto the back. Thread the other end of the white thread through the middle of the tea piece that will be stuck onto the top of the mug, to look like the tea bag is floating in the mug.
And that's it! Place the mug into your book and let the tea bag tag hang out to mark your page! So easy, and so cute! And if you know any tea lovers, these would be a cute little gift to give with a book! I hope you have some time to curl up with your favorite book and a nice cup of tea in your favorite mug (or teacup!!) this week! Especially when it's cold outside, there's nothing more comforting!
Have a great week, Everyone!
