Happy Mother's Day

 I made my mom a little box of tea for Mother's Day this year.

I got the idea from Martha Stewart, and her instructions for this project are right here.  Oh, Martha, you never cease to amaze me.

I bought a couple of craft punches for this project and fell madly in love with them.  Punching through thick paper and watching a perfect little butterfly pop out of the punch is endlessly satisfying.  I may or may not have punched a whole lot more butterflies than I needed, just because I was having fun doing it...

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!  I love you!


  1. This is sooo cute!! Definitely saving this idea for the future. :)

  2. Adorable gift! You can't have enough tea around, right? I have the same butterfly punch and I LOVE it. Seriously, whenever I wanna punch out one butterfly I end up with a whole butterfly army. So addicting!

  3. Fabulous idea! I actually know a few people who'd love this!
    Great blog!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!

  4. These are the cutest tea bags! What a thoughtful Mother's Day gift! Those craft punches look like so much fun, and definitely would be as addictive as my pom pom maker too! ;)

  5. oh wow, this is the sweetest idea! especially with the little butterfly shaped tags, i definitely have to try this one myself.

  7. This is the cutest idea! Wish I had spotted this before Mother's Day - my mom would love this :-)
