Little Gifts Part 1: Tea Bag Holder

Each December I like to have a collection of little gifts on hand.  They are perfect for service providers, host(ess) gifts, colleagues or stocking stuffers.  This week I’ll share the ones I’ve done this year, which I also offered in a class to my customers.
This tea bag holder was designed by Conni Richter, a German demonstrator.  I changed up a few of the decorative elements to make them a bit more Christmas-y. Of course, you can make these as gifts/favours for any occasion!
The mug and sentiment are from Cup of Christmas.  I used the coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies to cut out the mug, but one from the Ornate Labels Dies to cut the sentiment.  I punched a circle of Night Before Christmas DSP to go behind it.  
The accordion pleats on the side easily fit 3 tea bags, but you can actually get more in if you like.  Conni used tiny magnets as a closure, I used sticky-back Velcro dots on mine (this one actually only has ½ a dot, but I decided that was being too frugal, LOL!).
Here are the measurements to make your own:

Main Piece:
28 x 7 cm -or- 11″ x 2.75″
Score on the long side at:
8, 10, 18, 20 cm -or-  3 ⅛”, 4″, 7 ⅛”, 8″

2 Accordion Side Pieces:
9 x 7.5 cm -or- 3.5″ x 3″
Score on the long side at:
1.5, 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5 cm -or- ⅝”, 1.25″, 1 ⅝”, 2 ⅜”, 3″​
