it has arrived.
The stomach virus that is.
I thought I had avoided it.
Luckily, I had an epiphany in the shower last night and was able to whip up my day 4 gift for the Mr. before I went to bed. I definitely would be struggling to do it today.
But anyway, enough woe is me.
I thought I was pumped about all my other gifts so far.
And I was.
But now, I am so incredibly uber-pumped that I just can't see straight.
It doesn't help that I already gave the gift to Landen this morning and he was so proud that I came up with the idea all on my own.
I told you that he liked tea right?
Well what better for a gift than a cup of tea!
or several cups of tea in a cute little sandwich baggie with cute little matchbox covers! Woot!
I got the basic idea from over at eighteen25 by using her tutorial; you can find it here. I changed my dimension from 3" wide and 5" long.
Then I scored lines 1 inch from the bottom and then 2" up. I stapled my tea bag into the cardstock
and then added just a little adhesive to make a matchbook cover.
Then came the label!
Oh how I love the label!!!
It's simple but how cute! Sweet-tea, not sweetie, get it? I'm sure.
I whipped these up on photoshop, cut them out, and stuck them on the front of each tea bag.
Next I made a sandwich bag topper using the same design as the label, filled my baggie, and stuck it onto the top with some staples, and wha-la!
I super cute gift that he can enjoy for 11 days and it cost me zero dolla.
Woohoo for me!
He has already called me from work to tell me that he has his cup sitting on his coaster with his tea already made. I love impressing my husband. It's the small things.
And as a special treat to you I am including both the printable for the labels and the baggie topper. Happy 4th Day of Love!

Now if I move from the couch to my craft desk maybe I can continue working on the giveaway prize that one lucky blogger will be receiving on Valentines Day!
