So I made this with what I had on hand…I will actually be purchasing plum-coloured paper for the top and then a stamp of some sort (not my writing!!). I will also be getting some fancy scissors to cut the design on the top (I free-handed this).
I don’t know if I should stick something “else” in there other than the teabags, could use ideas.

Personally, I think the “problem” isn’t really with the number of teabags in the clear bag, but that the clear bag is way bigger than the teabags! If you could find some smaller bags that fit the teabag(s) a little better, I think it would look much nicer 🙂
For something else cheap and easy to throw into the bags, how about little bits/strips of crepe paper in your wedding colours? That way the bags will look much fuller and more festive.
I really really like the idea of having teabags as favours, and the scalloped edge on the paper-top will look so cute (you actually did a pretty good job with the free-handing, too!).

@Drums: The bags were cheap enough…but I just really really don’t want to order more, cuz now I have 200 bags I won’t know what to do with!! What about cutting the bags to be shorter, rather than getting bags smaller in width?? I shall try that and see, thank you! [attachment=1466932,186106]

@soon2bhis: Ohh yes, it looks much better when cut off shorter! Definitely have two teabags per baggie, the way you have in that last picture – now they look nice and snug 🙂

Definitely 2 tea bags…and I also like the idea of adding the crepe paper strips to give the bags a “fuller” look.

Is there some way you could tie in why you’re giving tea bags? Could you come up with some cute little saying to stamp on? Or could you stamp your logo/monogram (if you have one) on the white tag with the bags? I think it’s adorable, I love the idea!
Brew up some love.
A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea
When you drink this
Think of love from me.
A cup of tea to say Thank You,
For all the things you’ve done.
And wishes that the day will bring,
You happiness and fun
Tea is a cup of life. ~Author Unknown

@soon2bhis: I think cutting the bags shorter definately improves the look!

What is the top paper part made of? Any way you could print those out? Not that your handwriting is bad, but I think it would be much easier and perhaps more decorative if you could print that out.
