Hello there! Today I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme this time around is "Anything Goes"---YAY!

I recently came across Paula Dobson's tutorial for tea bag and coffee holders on YouTube and decided to give it a go :) Here's how it turned out:

Lawn Fawn's Love You A Latte stamps and dies were perfect for dressing up the little holders, which were very simple to put together :) I tied the tops together with some jute twine and a felt leaf (I've literally been hoarding these things for YEARS!!! Time to put them to use---ha!)

I decided to make mine tea and chocolate square holders. The tea bag is in the front pocket and the chocolate is in the back pocket. Here's a look at the back:


I also inserted a small blank piece of cardstock in the back as a place to write a message. My color combo came from the contents of the package. Here's a look at all the pieces:

These were so much fun to make that I ended up creating a bunch more!

I REALLY wanted to use the to-go cup in the stamp set, so that sparked the idea of making a few more without the tea and chocolates (to use as gift card holders):

I still put a blank piece of cardstock in the back pocket as a place to write a message (and you could still put a chocolate in there too---why not, right?!?!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
