1 Of The Best Cheap Mothers Day Gift Ideas, You’ll Find Online!
Hey, I’m Uliana from tinkerabout.com – a DIY & Crafts Blog dedicated to all things pretty & pastel. Much like Heart Handmade UK!
I’m so happy that Claire decided to share my projects with you and I hope that you will like them.
In Berlin, winters in Germany can be really harsh. But it’s finally getting warmer in Berlin and I’m SO happy about this. So happy in fact, that I decided to celebrate the arrival of Spring & soon Summer with the following DIY project – made exclusively for lovely Claire from Heart Handmade UK.
These Butterfly Teabag Tags are the perfect way to welcome warmer times.
They make a great Mothers Day gift on a budget or even a Birthday gift, a little summer party favour for your guests or you can make them just for fun.
You can download a FREE printable sheet of 24 colourful butterflies that I picked and resized from the Biodiversity Heritage Library Flickr Account.
(My tip: I highly recommend to take a look at the Flickr Account of the Biodiversity Heritage Library. All of their pictures are royalty free and you can find awesome vintage drawings that you could print and use to decorate your home.)
Let’s Get Started With Your Mother’s Day Gift Idea!
Materials needed for your Budget Mothers Day Gift Idea! :
- FREE Printable Butterfly Sheet
- Craft glue
- Your Mama’s Favourite Tea bags
Instructions for your beautiful Mothers Day craft:
Step 1 Of Your Mothers Day Craft Tutorial:
Print the butterfly sheet with a colour printer and cut out the butterflies you like. (I included a variety of 24 butterflies – but you may want to use only a few of them. My Tip: Use the remaining butterflies as Bullet Journal Stickers.)
I didn’t bother to cut out the antenna because it would have been a real struggle. If you would like to add the antenna to the butterfly – use a small amount of black wire and glue it to the bottom of the butterfly.
Step 2 Of Your Easy Peasy Craft Tutorial:
Remove the tea bag tags from the tea bags.
Step 3 Of Your Mothers Day Craft Tutorial:
Place a small amount of craft glue on the backside of the butterfly and carefully place the tea bag thread on the craft glue.
Depending on the glue you will use, it takes a bit of time for it to dry completely. I wouldn’t touch them for at least half an hour. (But maybe my glue is just crappy and I should buy a new one.)
It really is that easy.
So if you are planning a garden party soon – why not take your favourite tea, replace the teabag tags and give it to your guests as a cute way to say “thank you for coming“.
I hope you liked this cute little craft idea.
Have fun creating your own butterfly teabag tags!
