Heart Tea Tags

These heart tea tags were a fun after school project for Emily, and they make quick, easy, (and frugal) Valentine’s Day gifts!

I had a small box of tea from the dollar store, and Emily snipped off the tea tags with her kid-friendly scissors. Easy, peasy!

We didn’t have any heart stickers on hand, but if you do, use those and you can skip this step! We used color coding labels and Emily cut them into strips……

…..and she will take any excuse to use the heart-shaped hole puncher! This was definitely her favorite part!!

While she was busy with that, I cut up some squares of white paper. Then she used the labels to attach the string of the tea bag. If you have heart stickers, just sandwich the string in-between the stickers. So cute!!

We think it makes tea time just a little more festive and special, don’t you??

Have fun!!

  1. Dear Valerie,

    How are you ever going to do a craft involving my loose-leaf tea?


  2. Oh yes – I think it is very festive!

  3. So cute! You sure know how to make tea time fun! πŸ˜‰

  4. Mmmm….. tea, sounds very good right now.

  5. oo super cute!

  6. Oh, caffeene, how I love thee,
    Let me count the ways… :0)

  7. Ahhh- I spelled caffeine incorrectly! Sorry!

  8. Very fun. Now looking at Mark’s comment I am thinking of a craft involving loose leaf tea πŸ™‚

  9. I love this! I have wanted to get my daughter more interested in drinking tea and this might be just the thing.

    • We take tea time quite seriously in this house! It’s our time to relax and re-connect after Emily comes home from school, and tea time is a great transition to getting homework done. Have fun!!

  10. What a sweet idea. Couldn’t help to bring a smile to anyone’s face. While you’re thinking about the loose leaf tea craft, don’t forget us coffee slurpers!

    • When my oldest was in preschool, During “B” week, they cut out bear shapes from cardstock, spread on glue, and sprinkled on ground coffee–pretty cute. The bears actually looked furry/fluffy.

    • Oooo… I love Tera’s idea!!

      A coffee craft would be great fun! πŸ™‚

  11. Very cute idea! πŸ™‚ You could also add little comments to a box of tea…”You are my cup of tea” or “I couldn’t LEAF with out you” or something like that…those are kinda dorky, but you get my general idea! πŸ˜‰

  12. I think we’ll make these and send them to our grandmas and aunts πŸ™‚

  13. very cute, and so sweet.

  14. Uber cute and very simple! Thanks xx

  15. Valerie, This is sweet..I think it would be great put individual ones in valentines to Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. Great little extra bit of love in a v-tine card.~

  16. That’s way cute! Love it… Almost love them as much as the ones you did with Emily as the tag. πŸ™‚

  17. Definitely! So fun!

  18. No heart stickers? Make them with a heart punch. Ingenious.

    • Thank you, Scott! I try to use whatever I already have on-hand. Way easier, and a lot cheaper that way! πŸ™‚

  19. That is such a sweet and simple idea! πŸ™‚

  20. As a tea drinker and a teacher, I say that’s an awesome gift. Such a simple thing. I’m one of those that actually reads the little messages on the tea bags, so I would love those!
