Tea Time

Hi everyone,  I have another tea themed post for you today :)  

My friends and I are all tea lovers so I like to make up little gifts of leaf tea... nothing better than leaf tea ;)

This little gift went together quickly.  I just covered a tea tin with some pattern paper from the Hello Lovely collection.  I used my ATG gun to make for an immediate adhesion, but also added some liquid glass for a more permanent coverage.  I then created a coordinating tag. and tied it on.  

Hint: when wrapping twine around a tin... adhere a glue dot to the back and use it to hold the twine in place. 


I used the letters from the Hello Lovely Compliments to add a label to the top of the tin.  Easy peesy!


For the tag I used this month's Tea-rriffic stamp set... which is only available for a few more days.  I then fussy cut a flower from the pattern paper using the Micro tip scissors and stapled it on.  

Playing along with a few challenges:

Such a sweet gift idea, Laurel. I'm not a tea drinker, but this idea could easily be a coffee gift as well! Love the colors!
