Bridal Tea Shower Favors


I thought I would share one of the projects that I have been working on for Meagan's bridal shower tea. This was really a collaboration of efforts. Meagan came up with the idea of the wax bag, and the sweet vintage sugar spoons, she also picked up these pretty printed tags at Michael's Several yards of ribbon and a few tea bags later we ended up with these gorgeous favors for her guests.


These took a little bit of time to assemble, but once we got chatting, and working an assembly line...poof!  They were done! I have no way to express the joy in my heart that sharing my craftiness with my daughter has given me. It was so much fun to stamp, cut and repeat for such a happy occasion! And you know since she came up with this idea on her own...she may have a future in crafting after all!


If you plan to make a basket full of these for yourself, my best advice is to add a rectangle of cardstock just slightly smaller than the wax bag , placed inside of the bag for support { for both the ribbon and the spoon} otherwise the bag is just too "floppy" We inserted 3 flavors of tea,chosen more for their matching colors than anything else! :) we debated on adding pretty sugar cubes but decided to stick with tea.


The shower is being held at an adorable little English tea room, so we don't need a lot in the way of decorating, a saving grace for my busy schedule! I'm so pleased with the way these pretty favors turned out, and I'm sure the guests will be thrilled to receive such a useful, beautiful little thank you gift.

Happy creating~
