I've been meaning to share this precious little free-standing tea bag caddy for ages--well, today's the day! Someone gave me one years ago at a Stampin' Up convention and I took it apart and figured it out for you all (after I ate the cookies).
The Tea for Two Holder is so easy to make--once you've made one, you won't be able to quit making them! They are perfect for ladies' ministries at church, wedding or baby showers, co-worker gifts, get well soon packages--you name it!

You'll need a piece of double-sided paper cut to 8.5 x 12 inches, something to score with (Simply Scored Board or paper trimmer) and a stapler. Here's some quick tips:
- Use these gusseted cello bags for the cookies, or in a pinch you can use self-sealing clear envelopes.
- I stapled mine shut, but you can also close the holder by punching two holes and threading ribbon through to tie into a bow.
- In the sample shown above, my bows are actually just adhered with Glue Dots.
- You can fold the diagonal flaps to the inside or the outside--or both--if you prefer. Just depends on how much of which pattern you prefer to see more of! The pretty navy and white paper I used is called Floral Boutique and you can find it here.
