I am in charge of coming up with a favor for our Women's Christmas Tea at church. We will need 600 of them, so they need to be easy and inexpensive to make. I had vague thoughts of sewing a million tea bags (little fabric bags that we could put a special tea bag in - like from Celestial Seasonings - and include a little tag with the theme bible verse on it), but do we really want to sew 600 of them. Then again if we start now...

Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA!

Yikes, I don't know but I bet I would end up buying something :(
I do like that saying about women don't know how strong they are until they are in hot water or something like that...

Now that's some tea party ... 600 people!! WOW!!!!!

Could you get a bunch of people together and make them together? Probably wouldn't take long if you had some cutting, some sewing, some pressing .........

Could you get a specialty tea shop to donate the tea?

At times I've seen little organza bags with ribbon draw strings at the $ $tore that'd be perfect for your purpose.



From the other perspective .... do they "need" a take home gift?

Put your tea bags in those little key sized envelopes from an office store, and affix decorative labels run off on your computer and printer.

I made "Russian tea" with Tang for my teachers at Xmas. You could do that & put it into little jars.

Upton Tea has some really nice winter/spice teas that would be good.

We always do some kind of favor. Last year it was a Lindt white chocolate in tulle with ribbon holding the verse. Being a sewer, I was looking for something different and sewing related.

How about these, you could put sugar and creamer packets in them also.
