Dollar Find Friday (Steph- Tea Bag Holder)

Our Dollar Find Friday tutorial today comes from Steph. I love what she came up with using the Tea For Two Special Blend set!

As soon as I saw these amazing images from the new There She Goes sets “Tea for Two” and Tea for Two Special Blend”s I knew exactly what I was going to make!

I have always had an obsession with iced tea but struggled with how to store all those tea bags! I went to Hobby Lobby in search of a cute and cheap jar and came across this one when it was 50% off! Well, what jar doesn't need a little revamping?

Die cutting machine (Big Shot)
Scallop circle die
Coluzzle or other circle cutting tool
There She Goes stamps (Tea for Two Special Blends)
Ink (StazOn)
Cardstock (Ruby Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa)
Ribbon (Old Olive)
Coloring tools (Crayola pencils, blending stump, OMS)
Paper Piercer

Step 1- Cut a circle the size of the lid.
Step 2-
Adhere the circle to the top of the lid.

Step 3- Attach ribbon to side of lid

Step 4- Cut out a scallop circle and attach to the lid.
Step 5- Finish decorating the lid as desired.

Step 6-
Cover the sides of the jar with card stock. I cut my circles using the coluzzle

Step 7-
Fill the finished jar with tea bags and enjoy!

Thanks Steph for the wonderful tutorial!
Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to join us for the Week In Review on Sunday!
