New Floss Cards


I made a little time to play. 
I have been on a mission to do something a little different 
with my Cosmo floss...
I originally wanted to order some fun Eiffel Tower floss cards
but then I thought I would ask for that as a souvenir when
my kids go to Paris this summer.
So then I decided to do a DIY project.

I ended up combining a few ideas.
One day on Pinterest I saw that someone
had made handmade tea bags filled with tea for gifts.
I am a tea drinker so the idea stayed with me.

I also remembered Happy Zombie taped the number
from the floss scan on to the embroidery cards.
So I used mini to/from tags and did the same thing.



The other side is cute paper. 
The tea bags were made from some left over scrap booking paper.

I used my never ending spool of baker's twine to
attach those to the "tea bags". 


You can easily take a tea bag apart and use it as an example.
I cut my paper 6" x 3 1/2".
Then folded the paper in half... lengthwise.

Next find the center and make the bottom "V" fold.

Fold in the top corners Like wrapping a package. T
Then fold over the top again to make the squared off top.
Loop your twine in the fold and staple top.

All you need to do next is make a cute little tag and attach it to the 
baker's twine.

These might be too cute to put away.
