I used a different Vintage Labels 10 stamp for the framing. The sentiment and scrolls are from the Afternoon Tea set. I sponged all the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Here's a peek inside this box. You could fit 4-5 tea bags inside. Wouldn't this be a great set to bring a girlfriend when you drop over to visit??!!
Thought you might like to see how I made my little rose flower. I used handmade Mulberry paper (not hand made by me! - I bought it many years ago probably at AC Moore)
First you draw a swirl as shown - cut it out and roll it up starting from the outside end. It will be pretty tight so I place it on my work table and tap the top a littlewith my finger tip so it opens up just a bit.
Then I dab some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive on the bottom and push it onto the center of the scroll that sort of makes a platform for the flower. This works up in just minutes and they look so cute don't you think?! The leaves were made with mulberry paper also - I just cut a leaf shape, sponged it with Tea Dye Distres ink, creased it down the middle than attached it under the rose. You can use any kind of paper for these and make them any size - I started with a 2"x2" square.
