My Besties Get Well Tea Time

We get a lot of respiratory problems through out the year and i had a friend recommend this great tea called "Breathe Easy".  My grandson, who is 7, and has asthma; drank some when he got sick this year and he said it helped.   I also have my husband drink it when he gets a cold and it helps him also.

So when this "Time for Tea" challenge came up at My Besties UK, this is what came to my mind..i wanted to incorporate the tea pouch as a gift for someone.  I did some searching on line and found an excellent, free tea bag pouch template here.  So i cut my box out of Kraft paper and did my own scoring and came out with this great little gift using My Besties image 743 and you can find her here:

I made a tag the same shape as the box and added a doily and ribbon to the top and then punched the half circles at the bottom to "hold" the tea bag packet" in place.  Then to secure it i tied a ribbon around it as well.

What the box looks like w/the tea tag tucked in:

Dies used:
Memory Box doily die (on tag)
Marianne Designs- white doily on front of box/bag
Lifestyle crafts- doily and sentiment square

Copics used:
skin- E50, 51, 53, 02
hair/ glove- Y00,21, YR23
lips- R35
eyes- B02
bandana- B000, 00, 02, 04
shirt- R20, 22, E00
flower- G21, R35
