diy favors using our glass containers

I've talked to a number of brides in the past few weeks who were looking for favor packaging ideas for tea, specifically the loose leaf tea that has become so popular. So today I'm going to share a couple of favor ideas for loose leaf tea in our small glass containers with cork tops. These favors could be used for weddings but I think that they would be equally lovely at a shower or special party.

Pink bakery twine was tied around the top of this bottle. I created a simple watercolour paper tag that I could add to the cork top using a decorative pin.

I wanted guests to know what kind of tea was inside the container so I used the watercolour paper tag as a label. If you can't find decorative pins like the one I used, simply glue a fancy bead to the end of a long pin to create your own.

The next favor takes a little more work to put together and is a little more expensive to create but it is worth the extra effort and makes a wonderfully useful gift.

Lace ribbon was used to attach a tea scoop and infuser to the glass containerThe favor also doubles as an escort card holder. You can see how I attached the watercolour paper escort card to the tea scoop using two sided tape on this next photo ...

 Washi tape was added to hold the tea scoop in place - you could also use lace tape or glitter tape.

We have lots of other glass containers and paper bags to store larger amounts of tea. Check them out on our website or come visit one of our stores!
