DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags

DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags
It looks like we have six more weeks of winter, huh? I can’t exactly complain about the winter we’ve been having here in LA, but I know a good portion of you could use some warming up right about now. Since I’m a big tea drinker I wanted to make these DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags for Valentine’s Day. I plan to put them in little gift baskets for friends with a card that says something sweet and silly like You’re Tea-rrific and You warm my heart. Right now though, I plan to enjoy a cup with one of Jaime’s heart scones.

Sew a thread from the top of the tea bag and leave a 1-2 inch tail. I also cut the tags off a couple of other tea bags I had.
