Picture of DIY With Kids for Mother's Day. Gift Tea Box and Tea Tags.

A project I would like to share was done for our dear grannies for Mother's day. Two variants were done. The first variant I did together with my daughter. The second variant is a printable version (I did patterns in a photo editor and printed them out).

Materials are really simple:

The main one is a box of tea bags.

Some paper, color markers/pens/pencils, an adhesive (double-sided tape is comfortable to work with), scissors.

And of course a good mood because this gift is gonna be given to someone you love!

Here is my video tutorial with both variants:

Step 1: Take A4 Paper, Cut It Into Rectangles, Fold Them in Half and Cut Off Edges to Make a Tea Bag Shape.

My rectangles (tea tags to be) are 3,5 cm x 9 cm.

Step 2: Let Your Kid Decorate the Tea Tags.

Step 3: Take a Ready Tea Bag, Remove the Tag and Adhere Your Tag With Double-sided Tape or a Glue Stick.

Step 5: Take Thick Paper A3, Fix the Box With a Masking Tape, Trace the Outline and Cut It Out.

Instead of A3 paper, one or two sheets of A4 thick paper/ card stock may be used depending on the size of your box. How to make a box out of A4 paper is shown in the second part of the video.

Step 6: Repeat All Folds and Cuts Using a Ruler and Scissors and Fold Up a Box.

Thus, the box is ready, the tea bags are ready. Place tea bags in the tea box and wrap the box with a clear plastic to make it look even better.
