Alright tea friends! This idea is from @Tatsu of our group! After reading through some great tea swap suggestions I thought why not dive in and try making a bookmark out of tea bag wrappers and tea images? (You could print some out from the internet or draw them yourself!) There are soooo many ways you could do this, either using the whole wrapper, just sections or words from a bunch and using the tags and such, get creative! Make your bookmark about average size, there's no restrictions on that, and if you life add a string to the top, perhaps with a tag to look like a teabag? Haha, a few ideas regarding the start and construction might be.. Make a base for the bookmark from a heavy piece of card or cardboard, using glue or double-sided tape, paste or wrap your wrappers or tea based images around the card, layering them to cover the whole base. Stamp images, use stickers, collage it up! To finish your bookmark off you might consider taping it between to pieces of thick, clear packing tape, to protect from moisture and wear/tear. Use a hole punch at the top and add a pretty decorative string or braid (colored floss or yarn perhaps?).. just use what you have, this should be a fun, cheap and creative swap!

Also, include 2 teabags your partner can use for a cuppa, and please feel free to ask any questions, share ideas, images and have fun!

celestial seasons has great graphics on their boxes. I'm using the cardboard from that as my base:)
