What you need

• Tea filters
• Pen
• Scissors
• Needle and thread or sewing machine
• Funnel
• Tea blend
• Coloured cardboard
• Cord
• Heart Template (Download here)


How to make it

1. Place a tea filter in front of you and draw a heart on it.

2. Cut out the heart so that you have two hearts (front- and back side). Sew together the two sides and leave approx. 2 cm open to fill the bag. The stitches should be small enough to prevent the tea from falling out of sewn up bag.

3. Put the funnel into the opening of the tea bag and fill with the tea blend. You may have to push the blend through the funnel using a closed pen. Close the filling opening with a few stitches, by hand or using a sewing machine.

4. Next make the tag for the tea bag. Cut a rectangle out of the coloured cardboard (size approx. 6 x 2 cm) or use our template and fold it in the middle. For a more personalized gift, you can write the name of the recipient or a name for your tea blend on the tag. Attach the cord at the edge of the tea bag and at the tag with a few stitches.
