  • 3. Glue the invitation details to the right side of the purple and lime background.
  • 4. Punch five leaves from the leftover lime paper and five leaves from the leftover purple paper to represent herbs. Hot-glue the leaves to the white teabag shape (towards the bottom). Hot glue the vellum tea-bag shape on top.
  • 5. Cut a 1-3/4" square from the leftover lime paper. Staple one end of the string to the top of the little lime square, and the opposite end to the top of the tea bag. Write "Girls' Night In" on the little lime square.
  • 6. Glue the tea bag to the purple and lime background at a jaunty angle in the area left of the text. Glue the little lime square to the invitation overlapping the edge of the text block. Place the invitation in the white envelope and write "Hand Cancel" on the front of the envelope.
