I’m a huge tea drinker. I drink at least two cups of tea a day. My favorite teas are ginger, herbal and chai. Forget coffee give me tea! Since I like tea and I like reading I decided to combine the two for a simple DIY Project. I was thinking of ideas on how to create a template then I came across Genuine Mudpie’s blog post showing how to make DIY Tea cup bookmarks and I knew I had to make my own. This is a simple DIY to do with the family on the weekend. 🙂 Plus it’s perfect for your weekend reading.

5. Cut out your tea tags ( I decided to put the name of the tea that I like to drink on the tea tags).
6. Glue the thread to the back of the tea cup and secure with a small piece of paper.
7. Glue the tea tag to the thread.

  1. These are so sweet. I usually use a scrap of paper that’s nearby when I need one… *hangs head in shame*. I need to get my act together! p.s. love the tassel version 🙂
