Is there anything better than a delicious, warm cup of tea? Yes! A delicious warm cup with a gorgeous paper diamond holding your tea bag of course! For all you tea-loving gals out there, I have the most wonderful project idea for you. Simply cut and fold these diamond shapes into existence and let them mind your tea string for you in style. I know they look ultra-fabulous, but your Cricut Explore does all the hard work for you. Since this project is just so cute, I felt that a video tutorial was in order and I hope you enjoy it!
Beauty And The Beast Tea
Ok, let’s just take a moment to relish in the amazingness that is the new Beauty and the Beast movie. If you haven’t seen it, stop, and go right now. Ok, maybe finish reading the post first but seriously go. I’m obsessed and so when I saw that Twining’s has an entire line of BATB tea, of course I had to buy it… luckily I could use it for this darling project!

Print Your Own Patterned Paper
When I went to my local craft store I couldn’t find any rose gold marble cardstock – so I had to make my own. Using my Canon iP8720 Crafting Printer (the only home printer that can print up to 13″x19″) I printed this paper myself! I purchased the gorgeous marble designs from BeracaInk on Etsy and then printed it onto 12×12 Vanilla colored scrapbooking paper.
Use any patterned cardstock that you’d like – or make your own like me!
It’s Always Time For Tea
Whether it’s your bridal shower, Mother’s Day or maybe just a cozy rainy day… these diamond tea bag holders will always make your cup of tea a little more special.
