This tutorial shows how to draw a tea bag in eight steps. It provides easy to follow examples and short and simple instructions.
The tea bag in this case is a fairly common type with similar ones used for many brands of tea. You can see a preview of the drawing steps for it in the image above.
Start the drawing in pencil and make light lines in case you make a mistake. You can darken them later on with a black pen or marker.
Step 1 – Draw an Outline of the Tea Bag
Begin with an outline of the tea bag’s shape. Make it’s bottom part close to a rectangle and the top slightly narrower kind of like the roof on a house. You can make the lines that define the bag slightly curved/uneven so that they are not perfectly straight. This will make the drawing look more natural.
Step 2 – Draw to Top Fold
At the top of the bag add a fold as shown in the example. This one should sort of look like the seal part of an envelope.
Step 3 – Draw the Side Folds
Add two more folds on the sides of the previous one. You can show them with just one line each (again as in example).
Step 4 – Draw the Tag
Besides the bag draw the tag. Make it’s shape somewhat similar to the bag but this time make all of the lines that define it straight.
Step 5 – Draw the Staples
For this step add a pair of staples. One for the bag and one for the tag positioned as shown above.
Step 6 – Draw the String
Draw a string running between the bag and the tag. Make it go behind the staple on the bag end and into one of the sides for the tag.
Step 7 – Draw the Tea & Finish the Line Drawing
Inside the bag add some tea. Outline it as a bunch of broken up wobbly lines slightly closer to the bottom of the bag than the top.
Once done adding the tea check to see if your drawing looks the way you want. Make any corrections if needed and trace over your lines with a black pen, marker or darken them by pressing harder on the pencil.
Step 8 – Color the Tea Bag
To color the tea bag colored pencils can be a good option. You can make the entire bag a light yellow/grey and then also go over the tea in it with brown.
In this case the tag will be red but you can make it any color you like. For example green can be a good option if you want it to be mint tea.
There are a few different kinds of tea bags out there. This tutorial shows how to draw a simple and generic looking one in a way that is not overly stylized. If you want to draw a bag with a different design you can probably use similar drawing steps. Start with it’s larger parts and work your way down to the smaller details.
