Cheap Thrills -- Tea Time Edition

For a fun time, take photos of your child (or yourself) jumping around. Print out the photos, cut them out, and attach to the end of the string of a tea bag.

They make fabulous tea tags!!


Lucky for us, we have plenty of aforementioned photos, since Emily is constantly in motion! In mind were these tea tags from a café in Turkey. We found they were easy (and so much fun) to make ourselves.


I think they would be the perfect gift -- with a personalized touch! They would be great for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and of course, teachers. Basically anyone who loves tea! And who doesn't love tea??



And for us, tea time just became a whole lot more fun!

Oh these would be so fun! My kids love having tea parties, and imagine their surprise when they're on the end of the tea bag.

What an adorable idea! I love it!

My husband makes tea every night for our cats. (No, I'm really not kidding!) I might have to put some of our cats on the end of his teabags!

I just have to tell you that I desperately love your blog. Your ideas are amazing, and your girls are adorable. I think you should enter one of these pictures in the I Heart Faces Jump for Joy competition that's coming up next week. It's so creative. I think it would be perfect! http://www.iheartfaces.blogspot.com/

so cute! is it just a piece of scotch tape holding it onto the back of the photo or did you sandwich it somehow?

MaryAnne said...

These are adorable, fantastic photos of Emily, too!

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ Amy's Stocking Stuffers -- I've never heard of making tea for cats, but why not?? :-) I bet they would look super-cute, especially if you can snap some pictures of the cats stretching!

@Tricia -- Awww... that's so sweet, thank you! I've bookmarked the I Heart Faces challenge, and I would have never known about it. Thanks so much for the heads up!

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ danita -- Yes, just a bit of tape works fine. You could also sandwich the string between two pieces of paper (photo on one side, blank on the other) and use a glue dot to attach them.

Petula said...

Now that's so freaking cool! I think you're right - my mom would love that!

Cindy said...

I agree these are so totally cute. I should make something like these for my daughters Graduation party this summer. Maybe like little stir stick toppers.

Thank you.

PS: i searched "camomile" with an online translator... I'm hoping it is right.

I LOVE this! Something similar, but baby-themed, would be fantastic at a baby shower, too!

Lori Beverage said...

Almost too cute to use...but what a lovely craft for the tealovers in a child's life.

Kelly said...

Sure hope I am getting some for my bday...hint hint! (Can you include some of D too? That would make for some hot tea--literally!)
