I actually made these tea bag bundles about a month ago. I used a square punch to create stacks of tea bags mixed with manila card stock (for stability). Using waxed brown thread I tied them up into wee bundles. The center one has red wax that I had in my stash. What?!? Who has dribbles of red wax hanging around? I do. It's from a Bonbel cheese wrapper that I peeled off and heated up in my hands like clay. Because who knows when you might need a dribble of wax? ;>
The layers are black card stock, a clipped old map from a magazine, brown card stock that I bleach stamped, a bit of crochet that I made then stiffened, and a tag that says 'Merchant'. It's the same image I used in my blog header above. If you scroll up you'll see it.
Just another 'Tea Bag' art idea I had to add to my tea bag journal. Which as you all know by now, is a workshop that I will be teaching in May at ART & SOUL.
I have a few more 'tea baggage' art to blog in the coming week. See you then.
I added this piece to Let's Play February to use neglected art supply - brown card stock and red labels:
