Nettle Teabag Holder

Morning and I have a teabag holder to share -I have used green because it is to house my nettle tea teabags.

I made the box and lid out of heavy card then matted P.paper from The Works onto green card-ribbon/pearls and metal brad from stash,The butterfly was a craft mag freebie stamp,I made a small rosette for the lid and the foliage dies (on the side which I forgot to photograph!)are from Creative Expressions.The cup of nettle tea image was courtesy of google.

Greetings Carol, wow what a fabulous tea holder. Fabulous colors and details.

Yes after a month now you would think the panic buying would be done but it isn't. Really how many rolls of toilet paper do people need.

Stay well.
