I did choose a color scheme with someone specific in mind.
I started with Sara's new digital paper called "Tea Time" - I loved the dark blue and pink color combo. Perfect for my recipient! Once I chose my digi paper I selected a complimentary CS from Couture Cardstock (it's so nice that the digi papers match these CS colors so nicely). Then it was just a matter of "prettifying it". Starting off - here's the front - see that cool "tab" cut out - perfectly sized to fit a standard tea bag!
For the top of the box I created the tea cup with the new CUT FILE also called "A Spot of Tea" - I resized it easily with my Cricut then decorated the tea cup mat layers with used the stamp set again.
This box is roomy enough for a full box of tea bags plus some - I did not have a full box but you can see how generously sized it is...
Finally, my card. I used the new CUT FILE again and, following Lauren's video found here, I made a tea cup card. I made mine small since I only need to say a few words on the inside but what a CLEVER and ADORABLE template for a tea cup shaped card. I decorated with A Spot of Tea again. GREAT stamp set.
Now isn't that a pretty way to store your favorite teas?? There is also a version of this file that does not have the cut out tab so it's a beautiful gift box instead. Lauren thinks of everything!!
Be sure to check out Lauren and Catherine who are posting ideas all week as well.
