Create for Mother's Day

Have you thought about Mother's Day yet? No doubt the kids at school are all onto this in their classes! But mum, have you thought about your mum? (or maybe you're a bit too old for mother's day craft at school!). A hand-made, crafted gift or special time together always means more ... so have you thought about what you're going to do or create?

So, if you're up for being a bit creative today, here's a quick little project that would add a cute touch to a special cuppa for mum.

All you'll need is a few small pieces of felt, a button, needle and thread and scissors!

Take a small piece of felt and cut it so that it is 10 cm x 3 cm.
In the very centre, cut a vertical ‘slit’ 1 ½ cm long.
Cut a flower out of another scrap of felt. To make this easier to cut, first cut out a pattern for the flower and then tape it on to the felt. Cut through the sticky tape around the edge of the template.
Stitch (or glue) the flower on to the tag cover right near the end. If you’re stitching, make sure the stitching is on the edge of the flower only.
Cut a ‘buttonhole’ out of the centre of the  flower – just a horizontal ‘slit’.
Stitch a button on the bottom inside of the  other end of the felt strip.
To use, curl the tag of the tea bag enough to fit through the centre ‘slit,’ fold the cover over the tag, and pull the button through the ‘buttonhole’.

And there you go, you have a cute little tag for your tea bag!

Now all you need to do is make that cup of tea!
