I know what you are thinking…. TEA labels? No one in the world needs frickin’ tea labels. But apparently I have a problem….
We went to IKEA yesterday, and we bought some extra counter space, as ours was non-existant and I also treated myself to some glass jars to display all my tea, (I know I need a life) freeing up cupboard space for jam and chutney and whatnot.
May I also add there is MORE tea in the green biscuit barrel…. packets of yummy loose stuff….I told you I had a problem.
So if you are as crazy as I am or you have lots of other things in glass jars, here is a little DIY of how I made my labels.
1: Choose yourself some card.
I personally delved into my box’o’scraps and pulled out what I can only guess to be some of sort packaging. Thick paper will do.
2: Find something about the right size and draw around it.
I used a little sample pot of Body Shop Body Butter….mainly because it was in reach…
2: Cut out your circles carefully and hole punch a hole into each
3: Write the initals of what is in the jars
I used a stencil, because my handwriting resembles that of a drunk spider, but if you have nice handwriting, go to town!
P = Peppermint, C= Camomile, Ch = Chai, EG = Earl Grey and Yum is for what ever loose tea I put in the jar (subject to change a lot!)
4: Loop ribbon/string through the holes and then attach to jars with a firm knot.
This literally took me all of 5 minutes to do last night and I love how it looks!
