If you are looking for a creative gift idea, the ideal solution may be hand-made ​​teabags.

Is not difficult, and the effect is surprisingly eye catching. It is also an interesting idea to do something creative with your child.

Here are the things we are going to use:

  • paper coffee filters
  • herbs or a regular tea
  • colorful thread and needle
  • string
  • scissors
  • stapler

tools we'll use to make tea bags

We start from cutting rectangles of the coffee filters with sides of length 6 and 7 cm (2.3 x 2.7 in).

Then sew the sides of the filter with colored threads. Of course there must not be even. I think that the uneven stitch only add charm to our tea 🙂

Then pour the resulting sachets of 1.5 teaspoons of herbs.

If you wish to further personalize your tea, you can collect and dry herbs by yourself!

After filling all tea bags you fold them in this way:
