Invitation to Tea 4 Two

I challenged myself to make another invitation this time using teabag envies as pockets for the tag invitations. I didn’t want a folded card, but a postcard-like card instead, so that the tag invitations would be the center of attention. I’m not real keen on the design surrounding the pockets as I was playing around with this particular punch, but I do like the placement of the pockets and tags.

  1. What a fantastic idea to use the tea bag packet as a pocket. Love it.

    Thanks for letting me know about the link colour. I have changed it to red and a dark grey now so hopefully much clearer. I use Silicone Glue in between my Paper Tole layers. I just by it from the hardward section in the department store. Mine is Selleys Glass Silicone Sealant. I use this as I can control the height between the layers. A toothpick helps me out.
