DIY: Easy Tea Bag Favors

Edible (and drinkable!) favors make sense: chances are, they'll actually be used and appreciated more than a costly trinket.  To make these sweet favors, you'll need the following:



  • Tea bags with strings

  • Patterned paper

  • Solid-colored paper

  • Small flat cello bags

  • A circle punch

  • Decorative scissors

  • Glue






Place these favors at each table setting, on a dessert table, or use them as seating cards and display them on a table for guests to see when they first walk in!


For this project, we used inexpensive tea from the grocery store, but you can use fancier tea; just make sure that the bags have strings attached to them.  We cut the tags off each tea bag, leaving enough string for the new tag.  To make the new tags, we simply punched circles from patterned paper using a circle punch, and glued the circles to the ends of the string of each bag.

We personalized the packages for each tea bag with a sweet saying that we printed onto colored paper.  (This label can be personalized with guest names, table numbers, your names, or your wedding date...get creative!)  We trimmed the colored paper to match the width of the bags, and used decorative scissors to embellish the top of each label.

We slipped a tea bag inside each cello bag, trimmed off the top of the cello bag so that it was a square, and then glued the paper labels to the tops of the bags.


Patterned and solid paper from the Martha Stewart Collection at Michael's; cello bags available at Nashville Wraps; circle punch and decorative scissors by Fiskars.
