Hi my crafty Tombow friends! It’s Dani from @popfizzpaper here today sharing a Galentines tea for two envelope tutorial. These are a fun way to give cozy hugs in mugs to your best gal pals. Let’s get started!
- Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen (hard tip)
- Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
- scrapbook paper cut to 6″ x 4.25″
- bone folder
- scoring board
- embellishments (washi, stickers, etc)
- bakers twine or ribbon
- individual bags of tea
STEP 1 – START THE BASE
With the 6″ side of your scrapbook paper at the top of your score board, score at 3″. Turn the paper 90 degrees clockwise, then score at 1″. Next, fold your paper along the 3″ score mark, cut an angular shape from the bottom up to where the score lines cross, then unfold. It should look like the picture below with two flaps at the bottom.
STEP 2 – FOLD IT UP
Next, flip your scrapbook paper over so the pretty side is facing down. Fold up the bottom flaps and secure along the outer edge with the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. These are the pockets that will hold the tea bags. Ta-da! The base of our tea for two envelope is complete, so let’s get to making it extra pretty.
STEP 3 – DECORATE
Now grab your stickers, washi tape, and any other embellishments you’d like to decorate your tea envelope. I like to layer them up a bit and secure them in place with more Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. Next, write your “to” and “from” with the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen on the back of your envelope. This adds a really cute Valentines feel to this little gift.
STEP 4 – TEA TIME
Get a couple of tea bags and slip them into your envelope flaps. I like to include a couple of different kinds so my Galentine can have some variety, but if you know your friend’s favorite kind of tea, go with that!
STEP 5 – WRAP IT UP
Loop some bakers twine or ribbon around your envelope to hold it closed, then tie a pretty little bow. All done!
