DIY Tea Party Favors

Who doesn’t love a tea party with all of it’s lady-like charm and dainty accouterments. And of course it’s the little details that set any party apart from the rest, and these DIY tea bag favors are one of my favorite projects which does just that!

I made these “tea bags” to hold tea cookies and double as place card holders in the tea party I styled for Hens and Chicks Parties “party in a box” set. All you need is some scrapbook paper and basic crafting supplies to make them for a ladies luncheon, mother’s day, or little girls tea party.

Tea Bag Favors


  • Patterned scrapbook paper, cut into strips about 5″ x 9 1/2″
  • Bakers Twine
  • Printable tea bag tag {from Accent the Party}
  • Small oval shaped cookies
  • Scissors, hole punch, double stick tape


  1. Using your cookie as a gauge, fold paper into thirds, lengthwise
  2. Fold one corner into a point
  3. Fold other corner into a point; Repeat on other end
  4. Fold one end up to the other, leaving some space at the end
  5. Repeat on opposite side to create a base for the tea bag to stand on
  6. Open paper back up and place cookies inside as shown
  7. Close tea bag with cookies inside.  Punch a hole in each pointed end of the bag, and the tag; pull twine through tag and knot it at the ends.
  8. Pull twine through tea bag holes and back over tag. Pull snugly to secure tag to bag.

NOTE: You can add a name tag as shown below, before pulling the twine through.

Place the tea bag favor in a tea cup to display.

 Here is how cute these favors look displayed on the table, with a name tag attached.  See the entire party here.
