Just my Cup of Tea
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather here in the Southern part of the UK....sorry to my Northern cousins as I know its not been that nice up there :/
I thought I'd make something useful for a change and as I am a tea fiend I thought about a tea caddy for my beloved teabags. I must add that this caddy contains just MY teabags....my OH just has his in a normal tea holder jar thingy....just the way things worked out....honest....
Before I start, I must give credit where it's due and I first thought of the idea after looking at this website and this is where I got my measurements from so a good idea to use that as your template.
One more thing, thick card is definitely better for this but I only had mount board that was big enough at the time which is a bit on the thick side for it,very sturdy but a real pain to score.
So, here the mount board is already scored and ready to go
Here it is all assembled and stuck together with Scor-Tape,I painted it a rather groovy gold colour....not a colour I use much but after Thats Crafty! gold and silver challenge I grew to love my gold paint ;)
Here's my master board created on thick card, cut into strips to be further chopped up and adhered to the tea caddy. A mixture of stamp here but mostly Dina Wakley ones.
Here are pictures of the finished caddy....a clock on the lid so you set the time for tea of course!
Of course a tea caddy needs a bit of attitude so what better then lime green paint and Stampotique stamps?!
Decoart paints and sprays, Copics, Dina Wakley paint, stamps are: Stampotique, Prima, Dina Wakley. Tim Holtz small talk sticker.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Take it,Make it, Colour
The Mirror Crack'd, Make and use a Masterboard
Stamps and Stencils, Anything Goes
After all that hard work I'm off to make a cuppa now!
Hope you like it
