Morning Cup Tea Bag Holder

I made this project with my Stamp Club last month. It's a simple pocket holder and could be used for other things besides tea!

I paper pierced the teapot on the front cover. I stamped it on the Very Vanilla cardstock and then again on the Elegant Soiree DSP and then cut out the body of the teapot on the DSP and glued it over the cardstock. I used a marker to color in the hands on the side and top.

The cardstock for the holder is 3-1/2" x 10-1/2". I scored it at 3-1/2" and 7", created three sections that measure 3-1/2" x 3-1/2". Then I cut the end panel diagonally. The diagram/picture I took below is kind of backgrounds -- the cardstock is facing down instead of up, so the pocket flap appears on the opposite end. If you fold on the score lines back toward the table and flip the card around you'll be all set. (See the inside photo above.)

Love this one, too! I made a similar version with my club and shared it on my blog linking back to this post. You are so great at making things so simple and easy to re-create with your creative inspiration. Thank you!!
