Sarn to the rescue!

Yesterday afternoon I was suddenly reminded that I need to get some Christmas cheques in the post - help! But, this morning I remembered my buddy Sarn showing some teabag holders a little while ago on her blog - here. So I adapted the measurements a tad, found some Christmas patterned paper which wouldn't need decorating and whipped these up in about half an hour:
And when open, I made mine tent style, so I just wrote the message on the upper flap:
I used:

- papers from the Paper Studio 'Cozy Little Christmas' paper pad that I lugged all the way from New Mexico last year. It's 11" x 8.5" and good sturdy stuff too

- the only thing I changed from Sarn's instructions was not to have a double fold at the spine, which means cutting the longest edge at 10.5" and only scoring at 3.5" and 7" ............ 'cos a folded cheque is much flatter than a tea bag :)

Thank you Sarn - I owe you for that!
