Fold your tool in half and thread each side of your bag making a knot at each end. You will not need to close or connect any strings. This step is mainly to keep your moss and leaves in your bag!

Once you are done threading your string. Take your leaves and moss and place into your bag. Take your safety pins and pin random leaves and moss to keep things arranged. The safety pins help keep placement so all your leaves don't fall toward the bottom!

Now that your bag is complete we must work on your tea bag label!!! Take your cardboard piece and cut out a 9''x 5'' piece of cardboard. Take your white piece of paper using your glue stick, glue white paper to cardboard. Use scissors to cut white paper to fit the 9''x5'' size. Glue corners!

You can create your own tea bag label but I chose to use one of my favorites, Starbucks Zen Green Tea! I used an image from Google to copy the label. When tracing in pencil be sure to draw dark enough to see through your color. After you are done with your sketch, take your green marker and fill in the middle.

Using your Black Sharpie Pen outline your drawing. Use Black Sharpie Marker to fill in the middle. Take your hole punch and hole punch each side of your label. String white string through each side of your label. Once your bag is on you will place this on your neck like a necklace.

Take your tea bag and tie a knot behind your neck making a bow. Spread out your leaves and moss to your liking and place your label around your neck!!!
