Don’t throw your tea bags away! Upcycle them.
In my eagerness to be more “green” minded, I’ve started saving the tea bags I use from the many moments of tea sipping I enjoy on a regular basis. And being the artist that I am, the first and natural thing would be for me, is to create art with them. Yes! So take a peek at the art cards I’ve created. I used ink, pencil and water-color to draw and paint on the tea bags. Then glued them neatly on cardstock paper and framed them with a nice colored background.
For those of you who are not artsy/craftsy, no reason to fret. Here are several other things you can do with your used tea bags. Borrowed from naturallivingideas.com and their post called “18 Genius Things to Do with your Used Tea Bags”. For the full article, click here.
