Easy Tea Bag Dispenser

My homemade tea bag dispenser is made out of cardstock and is so simple to make. I am giving this one away for a Valentine’s Day gift, but you could make it for any occasion. Mine is filled with Stash brand Chai Tea bags. Please scroll down to see the video.




I love how the glitter paper shines.




UPDATE: Several people have requested a diagram like the one I used in the video. The diagram in the video was hard to read, so I created this one for you. Remember, it is not drawn to scale, so please don't try to print it out and use it as a template. Just follow the sizes on it and your tea box will be fine. -Linda

I love the Tea Dispenser. My daughter loves specialized tea so much and would love if you could put a pattern on your site for the folding directions, etc. The design was beautiful and could be used for so many other things. TFS.

This is FANTASTIC!!! I love it :) I really want to try this one, I just hope I don't confuse myself on the measurements - I've been known to do that. *LOL*

Wonderful box. I have been working on making tea boxes for my girls for Valentine's Day, as they all drink tea at work, so this was perfect timing!!! Thank you.

When you ran through the templates, it did seem rather confusing! I will take you at your word, that it belies it's simplicity. I'm off to try it now...Wish me luck!

I'm a tea drinker both hot and cold and that box is so awesome. Would it be possible to put a template in pdf form? I don't think it would be near as confusing since I'm horrible at math and all those 1/16 really mess with my head! You always come up with the most clever projects.

What a fun way to give a special selection of tea as a gift! Thanks for the tutorial Linda!

Lesley said...

Thank you for supplying the diagram. I was trying to madly write down the measurements but this will be a bit better visually.
I bet everyone on the web will be making tea bag holders now. LOL
