For my project I chose to make these tea stained muslin gift bags.   They are great for gift giving and beautiful to wrap that special gift or keepsake in.  They are not hard to make, just take a little time.  So here we go~
#1. Brew some strong hot tea and soak the muslin bags in the mix for 15 ~ 20 minutes.
#2. Remove from the hot tea and let them dry.

#3. Tea stain strips of muslin (just like above) 3" wide X 12" long.
#4. Twist and roll the strip of muslin. As you are rolling tag it with Aqua Mono Liquid Glue by Tombow, to keep it together.  
#5. Clip when necessary.

#6. Now the fun part starts!  Glue on lace, ribbon and the hand rolled roses with
 Aqua Mono Liquid Glue by Tombow.  

#7. Glue the buttons by Buttons Galore & More in the center of the roses.
#8. When I had everything glued, I put a heavy book on top of them and let them dry.
#9. They are ready to wrap that treasure in and give to that special someone.

Thanks so much to my sponsors~
