Tea Bag Holder

At our CSL Business Builders meeting this last weekend - we made a cute little tea bag holder.  Here is a close up of the front using the stack of tea cups from "Morning Cup"  I am not a tea lover - but I love the thought of tea - if that makes any sense.  I collect tea cups; and buy tons of tea for others to drink - but me? - give me a big cup of coffee - the boldest brew you have :)  That's one reason I love this stamp set -as it has images of both tea items and coffee items - best of both worlds.
To make the holder we cut and scored the card stock as shown below. 
Then flip the CS over left to right and cut the last square at a diagonal from upper left of square to lower right.
The remaining triangle of the square will be folded to the left and adhered to make a pocket - you can see in a later picture.
Cut a 3 1/2" square of another coordinating color and also cut that diagonally.
Here is the inside of the holder (obviously we did two different colored holders :)  You can see the triangle folded to the left.  We punched a fun border on the triangle and adhered it for contrast.  I've seen several samples of these on the internet.
Here's the final project - closed and tied.  The ladies in this group were challenged to use these to add to a packet of Business materials and give to two new potential customers during the coming month.  Just one of a few Business Builder challenges they have to complete before next meeting in August.  ~Maureen
