I absolutely love the artwork thats featured on the celestial seasonings tea boxes.

I drink lots of Celestial Seasonings tea and I'd like to recycle the box by making some sort of crafts from it, but i'm at a loss for ideas.

I know you guys can come up with recycling / crafting items from Celestial Seasonings cardboard tea boxes -- i LOVE the artwork!!

Thanks so much

Oh, I have been saving mine too!  I am working on saving enough to cover my ugly coffee table.  I also want to make a tea tray (giggle) out of an old frame I have and some drawer pulls that the neighbor was going to toss (hiss on him!) ... that way my husband has a cool carrying tray to bring my my tea and scones in bed  Grin

My daughter pick out one she particularly likes (Madagascar Vanilla or something like that) with a lion on it and she wants a purse out of it ... so I put polyurethane all over it ... inside and out .. and I am going to line it with this cutesy fabric I have from a recon and put a cord on it.  She is 3 years old ... so I am still trying to figure out how to make it stronger in order to hold up.

I think a tote bag would be really cute. Just connect them with clear packing tape. You could also do vinyl, though Ive heard it is a pain in the butt.

I think a tea tray and coasters sound like a great idea.  Or even taking them and making a box for teabag assortments?  Something that, if guests come over you can pull out and let them choose their flavor from?  (while they ooh and aah at your creativeness)

I take junk school paper and turn them into checkbook balancer books, and purse notebooks for craftnotes. I just cut the art out, and cut paper to match the siz
e and staple em together. Smiley

I like the idea of a tea tray so much I might do one of my own! I have these cheap cookie sheets that I know aren't going to be a lasting item and realized that instead of throwing them out when they've had it I could turn them into a tea tray... I think labels from old tea boxes is a brilliant idea. Smiley

Another thing too... if you have a friend who enjoys teas, you could make them a tea wallet (same idea as the purses, only a wallet that fits tea instead of ID cards) or a tea-themed bookmark as a gift.
