Looks like I’m on a roll today! Heres my second DIY Wedding Kit of the day.
This one is perfect for anyone planning a ‘Vintage Tea Party’ themed wedding reception. Really quick and easy, and an original idea to use for place cards.
What you will need:
- As many tea bags as you have guests. Any brand which has tabs.
- Double sided tape, or glue.
- A computer and a printer, or good old fashioned pen and paper.
All you need to do now is design your own personalised tab. The one photographed has the guest’s name on one side and ‘James & Sarah, The Perfect Blend’ on the other, but you can go for whatever will fit in with your theme. I made my tab like a little book, I cut the old tab off and trimmed the string so that it would fit in my chosen tea cup nicely. I then cut a similar sized piece of double-sided tape and stuck it on the inside of the right page, then sandwiched the string in between before pressing the two together.
Here is a chance to really show of your personality and creativity on a shoe string budget. If you don’t fancy printing your design off the computer you could do it all by hand. Write in calligraphy pen or use transfers, stick on lace, buttons or ribbon, use fabric as a base, floral, polka dot, stripes, incorporate pages from old books, atlases or dressmaking patterns… the list goes on. You can make this as quick or as intricate as you like, but either way, it’s going to be a talking point!
