Mother’s Day Butterfly Tea Bag Tag

Hello friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start.
 I have been feeling a little under the weather of late and in a bit of a ‘blah’ mood. 
But sometimes the only way to get out of those moods is to force yourself
to make something, even if it’s a little something.  Don’t you think?
A few weeks ago, I spotted the sweetest little butterfly tea bags here 
and immediately fell in love with them.  What’s not to love? 
I knew I had to make some and wouldn’t stop thinking about
them until I did.  So I dusted my awesome Cricut machine
(which I don’t use nearly as much as I should) and got to work. 
thick paper
butterfly punch/cricut machine/butterfly print out
tea bags

1. Choose paper – I used watercolor paper using this technique
2. Use your Cricut , butterfly punch or print these from the Graphics Fairy and cut out
3. Cut a pair and place back to back
4. Fold in the middle and cut a small slit just past half way point of butterfly
5. Apply glue to the underside of both 
6. Place string from teabag onto butterfly
7. Place other butterfly cutout on top to ‘sandwich’ string 

Easy, right?

And so beautiful for a Mother’s Day tea or for a little girl’s tea party! 

I just love how magical they look perched on the
teacup and am so glad I took the time to make them. 

Have you ever had a craft or project that you just had to make?

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today.

Have a beautiful day!

much love,

    I would love to make the butterfly tags but do not have a cutter and actually do not know what one is,
    will have to look on internet, being in the UK it may come under a different name. Watch this space.

    I have just found this fantastic site. I love these butterflies but I am struggling to follow the link on the first instruction:
    1. Choose paper – I used watercolor paper using this technique
    The link only takes me to other wonderful projects & not how you made the paper!
    Can you give me any ideas please?

    I hope the lady fm UK managed to find out about the cutter – I am in the UK too.

    Beautiful project! I’d like to share the links for the watercolor paper printing instructions. Can you provide a current link for that part of the project? I found a link to printable butterflies on one of the links you provided by searching for it on their site (I’m assuming things have moved around since you first posted this). Can you direct me to butterfly outlines to cut out by hand as I do not have a shape cutting machine? Thanks so much. Your site is beautiful and inspiring!
