Ode To Tea

 A while ago a local art gallery had a show with the theme
'Ode to Tea'
Which inspired me to make this accordion book
 Where two little bubble birds
 were going to have some afternoon
bubble tea.
Here you can see the how it looks on the back when it stands open.
The whole thing is of course covered with tea stained tea bags.
The show was lovely -
many beautiful tea pots and cups joined my bubble birds,
and a few other tea bag books I made.


  1. Wow ! how your eyes must have lit up when you saw that theme.A great excuse for getting out the tea bag paper. ( Not that you need an excuse lol ) Yet another lovely creation I especially like the birds.

  2. beautiful! I love those bubbles and the idea for this booklet is just great!
    have a nice weekend x Stefanie
