All Things Paper

As much as I enjoy creating my cards I've also found a passion for making other paper projects.  I've been working out my own templates, some taking days while others in an afternoon.  My first project after seeing a teabag box was to make one of my own.  You can find the original tutorial here:  I did change mine just a bit.  I made the opening for the teabags at the bottom 1/2 smaller then use a 1" circle punch in the center of the opening to allow better remove of the bags.  I also used chipboard panels I covered in my pattern paper either on the inside or the outside depending on the look I wanted.  I also just made chipboard tops no bottoms.

My husband and I drink four different flavors but they do vary from time to time.  The Earl Grey though is our favorite so I did make a tag for that one.  The other Green Tea, English Breakfast and regular Lipton I just took the colors from their bags to create the color scheme for my boxes.

I also started making a calender template for my Christmas Gifts.............I start early but still wind up creating last minute all the time.

This is the easel calender open.  It has a place to the left where you can set a pen (mini pen which I will supply) and sticky note pad that will co-ordinate with my color scheme.

This is how it looks close (as in when shipped)

I also make different boxes as well.  I made this beautiful cake box for my Granddaughters birthday.  It's 2 layers and they both open to have small gifts inside.

This one was just for fun.........very colorful and maybe just a wee bit to busy

    May I suggest that you watermark your work as I have seen exact pictures of the tea boxes and calender with some of your wording displayed on face book as someone elses, I am going to front that person about it.
