DIY Valentine's Gift: Custom Tea Bags with Heart Tags

Valentine's Day is only two days away, but there is still time to make your loved  one(s) a special homemade gift! Tea bags are great for tea lovers of course, but they can also be used in the bath! The bags are easy to create and can be completely customized! We sell everything you need to get started with the exception of paper and thread! Empty tea bags come in packs of 40 for $3.99 and can be sealed easily using an iron or curling iron. We also have reusable cotton bags with drawstrings. We carry many loose teas and herbs, so that you can completely customize the bags for the recipient. Some suggestions include, eucalyptus, pink or red rose buds, chamomile, jasmine, rosehips, calendula, lavender, peppermint, yerba mate, even dried fruit...the combination possibilities are endless! Once you have customized the bags, cut little hearts out of paper and attach them to the bags with string and a needle. Write sweet little notes on each tag. You can be punny and write things such as, "You're Tea-riffic!" and "You're My Cup of Tea!" or be keep it simple with "I Love You." or "Mi Amore." Package up the teas in a recycled box or tin, a mug, etc. This is a great gift for anyone on your list, teachers, significant others, siblings, parents, possibly even children! Have fun with this one!
