Free Printable Valentine Teabag Wrappers + Tags

Hello lovelies!  Hurray, it’s Friday!  Do you have any special plans for the weekend?  I’m hoping to finish my daughter’s bedroom and restore my house to some semblance of order (everything from her room is currently in our living room), and hopefully there will still be enough time left over to work on another project or two I’ve been cooking up.  We shall see.

Before I take off for the weekend I wanted to leave you with a fun freebie that I created for you all…Printable Valentine Teabag Wrappers and Tea Tags.  These would be perfect to give to friends and coworkers.  Perhaps you might package up a few in a sweet little teacup and present it as a gift.

There are 4 ways to assemble the teabag wrappers.  The one shown in the tutorial below is the most time involved (stitching by hand) but the results are my favorite.  Other methods would include using tape, glue or a sewing machine.  Pick the method that will work best for you and have fun!

You will need:

  • color printer
  • standard weight paper
  • scissors
  • tea bags in the flavors of your choosing (the ones that come with strings and tags attached are best)
  • needle
  • embroidery or standard thread (I used white, but you can use any color you’d like)
  • Pen (for addressing your Valentine and noting the tea flavor)
  • For other methods of assembly (noted above) you may need (optional) tape, gluestick, or a sewing machine and thread.

Step-by-step tutorial:

  1. Print the wrappers and tags and cut each one out.  Gather your supplies.
  2. Carefully remove the paper tag that came on your tea (leaving the string attached).  Thread the string (that is attached to your teabag) through your needle.  Stitch the heart tea tag onto the end of the string using one or two stitches and secure with a knot.  Trim the end of the string if needed.
  3. Fold your tea bag wrapper in half and write the tea flavor in the box on the back.  Include your Valentine’s name if you’d like.
  4. Cut a length of embroidery floss about 38″ in length and knot at the end.  Thread onto your needle.  Begin stitching your paper wrapper by inserting the needle into the bottom (folded edge) of your wrapper (with the knot on the inside).  You can use any stitch that is comfortable to you.  I stitched around the edge because I like the effect it gives.
  5. Sew up the first side (do not cut the thread).  Wrap the string (attached to your teabag) around your teabag so that the heart sits as shown.
  6. Insert your teabag inside your wrapper and then carefully continue stitching until you’ve sewn all three sides.  Knot at the end.
  7. Give as is OR…
  8. Present it with a teacup or mug that can be used over and over again.

I hope you enjoyed this little project.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xox Ez

    Love this idea! I tried the little dangl-y tea string things last year, but never a wrapper for the teabag. Thanks!

    This is the cutest idea ever! thanks for your free printable! have a great weekend and can’t wait to see your daughter’s new room pictures

    This is a wonderful idea, and I just thought of a tea calendar (I have a small calendar obsession). Making 30 of these, each one for a day and with a message and giving a nicely wrapped box of these might be interesting.

    Aaand I could talk to my grandma, who gathers fruits and flowers for tea infusions and it would be even more personal.

    Sorry for the rambling, but it’s the most exciting project I’ve had lately :)

    Thank you, Ez! You are so sweet and generous. For Valentine’s Day I usually put together little packages of homemade cookies with a few tea bags for my children’s teachers. These pretty tags will be perfect.

    Thank you! its a cool idea! but, do you have anything for round teabags? I bought tea from Marks & Spencer but its round ones… can these be used for round ones?

  19. Ez P. / / Reply

    Thanks for all your great comments everyone! I’m glad you like it!@ ah Teo: the use of round tea bags with the printable teabag wrappers should be okay as long as the teabag itself is not too rigid. You may need to fold in a side or two, but I don’t think this would be a problem.

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone.xoxEz

    Is there anyway you can separate these? For example: multiple of the “u r a sweat-tea” templates on one page. I would love to make these for a friend and don’t really want to use the other ones. Thought I’ll give it a try to save ink and papers. Thanks

    Hey there,

    This is an amazing idea. You sparked some creativity in me and I took your idea & ran with it for a bridal shower I have to host. I made my own tea bag covers, but it was your idea! LOVE IT! Hopefully that’s ok!

    Swing by the blog if you want to check it out.

    Thank you so much for always inspiring me!

    What a lovely idea you are an inspiration,I know a little late for this year but 2012 is coming around so gives me plenty of time to experiment and get them as good looking as yours.
