Tired of fishing for wayward tea bags? Keep those stubborn leaf packets in line with this clever tutorial for making baking soda dough tea bag holders by Misako Mimoko for Handmade Charlotte.

This dough is smooth and silky, nice to manip­u­late. It’s non­toxic and safe for kids of all ages. It can be baked or you can leave it out to dry. Once dry it can be sanded and painted. It takes kindly to acrylic paints and pens of all sort and can be stamped and sealed with var­nish or Mod Podge.
