Joy’s DIY Tea Bag Bridal Shower Invitations

These DIY bridal shower invitations are so creative – and I love the sentiment behind them! As a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding, Joy Ang wanted to create a memorable invitation experience for guests at her cousin’s bridal shower. After a bit of thought and experimentation, Joy came up with these tea bag invitations that fit perfectly with the shower theme!


From Joy: Last year I was a bridesmaid for my cousin’s wedding and I got the chance to design her bridal shower invitations. The theme was an Alice in Wonderland tea party, and that’s what led me to thinking about tea bag-shaped invitations. However, I wanted them to have a little more impact on the guests, so I thought it would be really fun to make the invitations hold tea leaves that you could brew and drink.


After a couple of prototypes, I created these invitations by printing on vellum paper, which allowed the tea leaves to show through. I then assembled the invitations similarly to how you would with an actual tea bag, using the tag at the end of the string as instructions for brewing the leaves. This was such an enjoyable project to work on and I’m so glad I was able to make it for my cousin and her shower!








Thanks Joy!

    This is a great idea! Could you let me know what size paper you used? Where can I find a instructions to fold the paper into a tea bag shape? I’m planning a tea party bridal shower for my sister and this is a fantastic idea! Thanks for sharing!
