DIY Tea Bag Favors

Drinking tea is considered a daily ritual in many European countries. Around the world, people consume large amounts of tea, both hot and cold. The popularity of tea makes it a good choice as a favour to give at a wedding or a party, as it creates a greater likelihood that it will be taken home rather than thrown away. Tea bag party favours are an enjoyable do-it-yourself project and are inexpensive to make. You can create the favours using bulk or pre-bagged tea.

  1. 1

    Cut the cheesecloth into the size of tea bags or lay out the bags for use according to how many favours you need.

  2. 2

    Scoop one teaspoon of the bulk tea into each piece of cheesecloth or tea bag. Cut the ribbon or twine into 4 1/2-inch sections; cut as many pieces as you need. Tie the twine or ribbon around each tea bag tightly in a double knot.

  3. 3

    Choose the shape you plan to use for your tag and draw or trace the design onto your card stock. Trace as many tag designs as you need for your favours. Cut the tags out. Punch a hole in the top corner of each tag.

  4. 4

    Use a calligraphy pen to write messages on the tags. If the favours are for a wedding, you can print the names of the couple with a message like "A Perfect Blend."

  5. 5

    Tie the tag to the tea bag with the end of the twine or ribbon. Your favours are complete and ready to be distributed. Store them in an enclosed dry location until the day of the event.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also find templates for tags and print the tags on card stock rather than hand writing them.
  • Another option is to use store-bought tea bags and simply add on your own personalised tags.
