Best Friends...

Number two in my binge challenge week of postings.

This one is a card I just had to create. I had some prepackaged tea that I wanted to use for my friends and shut ins that I send to monthly.

My Winnie the Pooh stamps were just the thing. I found the perfect stamp...

 Pooh and Piglet are besties!

 I cut a 12" piece of patterned paper 5-1/2" x 12". You could use one with color on both sides but I liked this one.
I then scored it at the 4-1/4" and 8" marks in my scoring tool along the 12" side.
Before I folded I took the 3-1/2" end and found the middle. Using the Stampin Up word punch I punched in the center. I then moved the punch slightly to the right and punched again. I did the same maneuver to the left of the center punch. This gives enough room to slide the tea bag packet in.
 Before you put the bag in glue the bottom up leaving the pinched area open to receive the tea bag!

Now color your image and layer it onto the front of your card.

You can now send your best friend a cup of tea in the mail!
