Invite friends to enjoy a special afternoon tea at your place with homemade invitations, napkin rings and teabag pockets. The teabag pockets also double up as lovely collection envelopes for collecting donated money for fund raising afternoon tea events ... when you've collected the donations, fill with lavender, tape the tops and return to giver to acknowledge your thanks.
To make the invitations
Download and print the pattern paper from A Patchwork of Papers collection onto A4 paper. Print the tag from the Teapot & Tag Sentiments file. For 4 cards you will need a full A4 page, divided in width in 4 parts.
Using the same cardstock, die cut the tea time shapes and colour the highlight areas with a marker pen.
Fold in half the paper cuttings. Glue a piece of doily edge ribbon and decorate with the tag, the pearl leaves, the satin roses and the die cut teapot. Your invitation card is ready.
To make the napkin rings
Print another A4 page with the patchwork paper pattern. Cut into pieces measuring 15cm x 5cm.
Glue the doily edge ribbon onto them, leaving about 0.5cm on one side.
Roll the paper into a tube and glue to secure. Decorate with die cuts and a small ribbon from the 3mm ribbon roll. The napkin rings are now ready.
To make the teabag pockets
Print one more A4 page with the patchwork paper pattern. Cut into pieces measuring 8cm x 20cm. Fold in half and glue on the long sides only. If you're going to use the pockets to collect donations then glue the bottom of the pockets also.
Glue a piece of the doily edge ribbon and decorate with the rose and the satin ribbon. Use these pockets to hold a teabag.
