2013 Sketchbook Project - August 5 tea bag

Helen over at This Crafting Life was curious what the tea bag from yesterday would look like when dried. Thankfully, I wasn't all thumbs when opening and emptying it this morning so the bag is nicely in one piece.

Not bad, huh?


  1. Right, that's it! I'm a life-long once and day coffee (or I can't wake up) drinker. I've got to find a tea I like that comes with this kind of teabag, then all will be right with the world.

  2. Not bad at fact, quite coool... Now you will have to start a second book of teabags...

  3. enraptured with the abundance you've shared. love that in your world 1 tea bag = the enjoyment of a morning + 2 distinct works of art. sweet!

  4. Oh, that's lovely! And a good amount of paper for just one teabag, I understand why it looked so long and thin now. I think I might have to reconsider my tea buying habits, taking into account the design of the bag as well as the taste of the tea!

  5. Not bad she says...brillant woman!x

  6. Julie - Are you in the UK? Here in the US, the teas that I've found with bags like this [just by sheer dumb luck so far] are Lipton, Twinings and Tazo brands. Those are in the house at the moment. This mornings tea is Tazo Earl Grey and the bag is now working its magic in the sketchbook. Someone mentioned that coffee works for rusting too. Need a snag a bit of my husband's coffee and try...

    Thread Born - Thanks! There are a couple of ideas for the tea bags floating around. I'd like to print on them...both via the computer printer and maybe stampting words.

    Anca - I got a chuckle from your comment...especially thinking that the same thing applies to your egg shells. Assuming you are enjoying the eggs first, that is. Quite amazing

    Helen - The rusty tea bags are lovely with the rust marks and contrast in color. I've a stash of non-rusted tea bags that are just as wonderful with their various marks in the folds of the bag. You can't beat loose leaf tea for flavor though. Unless, of course, you grew up in the south as I did, drinking Lipton tea, but adding fresh mint and/or lemon or orange slices to it. Aaaahh...just thinking about it sends me back to my grandmother's kitchen with the most amazing aroma wafting from the metal bowl she steeped the tea in.

    Lynda - isn't bad, is it? Brilliant? Me? Oh! That's a good one. Thank you.
