WE NEED USED TEA BAGS

We need your Used Tea Bags to make Functional Arts and Crafts

How many cups of tea do you have dur­ing a day? You just make the tea and throw the bag into the bin!  What a waste!! Wouldn’t you like to prolong their life?  We will presurve them forever (well OK a long time). Please read our Step-by-Step Splitting Tea Bags”  so we can transform them.
