Today I created a little teabox to gift to a friend filled with lovely teabags!
Our own DT member, Sarah Martina Parker, designed this box - I found her template here. I thought it was the perfect size for gifting teabags (2 1/2" x 3") and the handle looked just like the old vintage metal canisters.
After stamping the teapot - I cut it out and instead of trying to fussy cut the inside of the handles (which I DID try disasterously once!) - I punched it out with a small oval punch. The sentiment is cut with a Labels Trio die by Spellbinders.
So there you go - I hope I've given you a little inspiration for using this wonderful Afternoon Tea stamp set! You can see all of my Afternoon Tea projects in my WMS gallery by clicking here.
As our parade ends - we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.
Find a card or project from any of those posted during the SoAP by the WMS Design Team. CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, post it on your blog or gallery and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog.
The competiton will close at 8:00 AM Claire’s time (Ireland) on August 10th (3 AM Eastern, 2 AM Central and Midnight Pacific time).
One project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs. The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on August 11th.
And now I hope you'll follow the parade one last time to see what the other Design Team members have created using this wonderful tea stamp set! Thank you SO much for joining us these past 4 days!
