Tutorial: Teabag Bookmarks out of Wipes

To celebrate Earth Day I made these fun bookmarks. It's such a shame that I didn't come up with that idea, actually my bestie in the U.S. did and sent me pictures of her bookmarks. They were just too cute not to replicate! Thank you Sara. ♥

Supplies:
Wipes
Thread
Scissors
White glue/Elmer's glue
Tea tags or cardstock to make your own


1- Cut in half.


2- Fold in half


• Cut little rectangles according to the size you want. Mine made 3 little teabags.


3- Snip one side.


4- And the other. (see how they don't match perfectly? it's okay because we'll fold the top to make it look neat later.)


5- Tie a few rounds of dark colored thread around your fingers. We are now making "tea" to put into the little bag. ;)


6- Chop, chop! Cut it into little pieces.



7- Unfold your teabag and add the little bits of thread to the center.


8- Apply glue to the sides. Oops, I made a complete mess because the glue was stuck and I had to use my finger! lol

9- Cut a piece of thread/yard that is long enough to stick out of a book and "sandwich" itbetween the two layers of wipes. Next glue the other end to a real tea tag or just cut a scalloped edges square of cardstock to make your own.

Voila!

Any Virgos here? lol.
The book is Girl, 15, charming, but insane by Sue Limb.


Have you recycled anything today? I would love to hear your thoughts about my little project.

Have a great day,

  2. Hi Roudi,

    Cute! I re-purpose found objects into my art. I use coffee cup sleeves to make my birds for my canvases. I also use paper towel and toliet paper centers to make circles on my canvases. Yes, we should all look at ways to re-use and re-purpose!

    Happy Earth Day.
    Hugs,
    Kay
