Decorate your tea bag box

Transform a tea box into an eye-catching feature

After a stressful day, it’s good to come home and start the evening off with a nice hot cuppa. A cup of tea is warming and comforting and will help you relax at any time of year, not just on cold, grey autumn days. There are many varieties of tea – so to keep them organised, store them in a wooden or bamboo tea bag box with a see-through lid. It will look even more attractive if you decorate it with a catchy phrase or quote. The smooth surface of the lid, whether it’s made of glass or acrylic, is ideal for adding a beautiful decoration with the aid of edding gloss paint markers. We decided to go for delicate pastel shades, but if you’d rather use other colours, these gloss paint markers give you plenty of choice: they’re available in a total of up to 22 shades and a variety of stroke widths. The colours are all smudge-proof and waterproof, which means you’ll be able to enjoy your tea box for much, much longer.
