Tea Bag Thank You Notes


Because I can’t seem to make things easy on myself and buy pre-made Thank You note cards… I went ahead with an idea I had to make “Tea Bag Thank You Note Cards” for the attendees of Ella’s birthday tea party.

They are really quite easy, all you need are:

  • 12x6 piece of decorative paper (per packet)
  • Pre-made template for tea bag packet
  • String (I used size 5 white DMC Cotton Perle)
  • Decorative Paper (size of your choice) for note
  • Small printed tags for tea bag tag
  • Stapler
  • Rubber cement, or other glue of choice


It’s really quite easy to make your own template for the packet. The measurements are as shown below. And of course you can scale the dimensions to your liking.


Once I drew out the template with a ruler and straight edge, I cut it out to use to trace on the back of the decorative paper.

Here I’m using the template just to show how to fold the packets. First fold the bottom rectangular flap up with decorative side of paper on the outside.


Next fold in side flaps. Fold them back out and apply glue to their insides. Fold back down and set under a heavy book until glue sets.

When dry, you can fold down the top flap. I did not glue this after inserting the note, but that is up to you.


Ella filled out a piece of paper with her thank-you to each child. Then I stapled a string to it. The other side of the string was then stapled to the tag which I printed up with a tea pot and “Thank-you” on it. Then I slipped her note into tea bag packets with the tag hanging out, for the cuteness factor.


Some other examples…
