My husband recently experimented with tea dying paper and had the entire house smelling of mint and chai. When the paper finished drying from its tea bath, he created this Valentine which evolved into a series of illustrations called Venn by Pen. We loved this Valentine so much we made it into a card, which can be purchased on our Etsy account Satchel & Sage.
Tea dying is a simple technique and gives paper an antique look. Click here for more on DIY Tea Dying.
These are my DIY Christmas cards made from recycled paper. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch to make lacey embellishments, and stamped the cards with hand carved rubber stamps (a peace dove and a Christmas tree with bunting flags).
For December’s craft meet-up the FC crew made felt ornaments. We drew, cut, stitched and stuffed, and by the end of the day we were buried in an explosion of felt. A big thank you to all the ladies that made this event such a blast!
Here are the results!
