I have been keeping my tea bags to add to the garden mulch and like the different patterns of staining as they dry out in a bowl on my kitchen bench. I decided it would be great to include the tea stained tea bag paper in my letters so my first set are all made with recycling in mind, using things that I already have. The base is scraps of left over printing paper.
Each letter has been fashioned from the dyed thread and glued down with rice glue. I have added something decorative related to the letter and then covered it all with a piece of tea bag tissue. I like the textured surface resulting. Some tea bags are quite dark and others are very lightly stained.
