Tea Packet

Hi Everyone!

We're back from a lovely little get was so much fun!

Gary & I went over to Victoria for a few days and we had a such a great time!  The weather was perfect....we had a little rain on one day but it brightened up a while later. Otherwise the sun was shining. We shopped, had a massage that was absolutely wonderful....stayed in a lovely room overlooking the inner harbour and the Parliament buildings...cruised around the harbour on one of  the little Harbour ferries, saw a seal bobbing in the waves...took long walks and ate wonderful food. 

Then on our last night Gary surprised me with a horse and carriage ride that came right to the hotel and picked us romantic and lots of fun! 

Here's a little tea packet to share with you....a perfect reminder of our time away in Victoria, which is famous for it's Afternoon Tea's!  I love Tea and so I had to have this set from Papertrey Stamps...I just couldn't resist!

Here you can see it closed, with the front details.

This is the inside view......


And here we have a little tea bag ....this one is Creme Brulee....mmm...what a lovely pick me up!

The dimensions for this little holder are 3" by 9" scored at 3' and just a tich over 6".   Then I angled the last bit with my ruler and attached the bottom with narrow sticky strip.  Very easy and so much fun to make!  I'm not sure where the original pattern for this came from...I do know it's been around for ages and you've probably seen the design or some form of it before!

I used Very Vanilla cardstock and Close to Cocoa ink.  The teapot was stamped on patterned paper and cut out....I used the polka dot embossing folder and slightly sponged over the top of the embossing as well as the edges.  The square medallion was done with a Martha punch and the ribbon is white organza from my stash.

I attached the little tea bag to the Teapot with white sewing thread and the heart is a PaperShapers folk heart....with a tiny pearl to dress it up.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!  Do you feel like a cuppa tea now?  {g}
