Tea Bag Gift Box with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is the project I demonstrated during last night’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live – a Tea Bag Gift Box!

Here’s a different angle:

Here’s what the inside looks like:

And here’s a different view of the inside:

This box perfectly holds 3 tea bags, and I’ve chosen Tazo tea bags for mine:

I’d like to give credit to Petra Rosenbaum (Stempel Dich Bunt) for this fabulous project! I studied her video tutorial (in German) and converted her metric measurements to inches.

Wouldn’t this be an adorable gift for someone who loves tea? Or even to carry tea bags in your purse! It’s quite easy to put together, so check out my video tutorial:

What do you think? Will you try making one? Here’s a picture of how to place the Tear & Tape on the accordion pieces:

And here is where I order my magnets from: Spider Magnets. I used the 8mm x 0.5mm magnets on this project.

Thank you to all of you who joined me live last night! I love demonstrating projects for you! If you have any questions, let me know! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

  1. This is insanely amazing! Love it! I’ve loved this piece of DSP since it was introduced but never imagined making something like this with it. #incredible

  2. Hi Julie, absolutely looove the tea bag gift box! I have a few friends who love tea (I don’t) who would love to receive one of these. Thank you so much for sharing such a thoughtful design.

  3. I love this and will be making these! Wouldn’t an orange pekoe tea and a lemon tea be fun with that paper? Strawberry tea bags in one made with the strawberry paper? I had a pear tea a long time ago that was fantastic and in search of a pear tea – now wouldn’t those cute little punched out pears be cute on one these too? I am using up the last of my pumpkin spice tea but come next fall I will be on the lookout for some tea to go with pumpkin paper. I have some older apple paper from a few years ago that would go fantastic with some spiced apple tea my step MIL gave me. Oh my, I think I am going to be busy making these holders and looking for all the fun tea bags to fit in these! Also, thanks for the magnet info. All this talk of tea and it is a frosty very cold day here, I think I will go make some tea.

    1. Chris – I love all of your ideas! Thanks! I’ve been trying to think of other ways to use this, as well. Since Valentine’s Day is upon us, I even wondered if this could be a cute valentine. I was thinking valentine paper with individual hearts, with messages on them, tucked into each slot . . . maybe Julie can come up with something! 🙂
