I saw a gift box made from a chipboard apple by Amy Scheffer at Pickled Paper Designs and thought, wouldn't it be cute to do a teapot and put some tea bags in it for a friend??? :) I, too, got my chipboard shape (teapot) out of the Dollar Spot at Michael's. It's a five-page chipboard album but I just took two pages off and used those.
I covered both the back and the front of each piece by tracing the teapot onto the cardstock and cutting it out. I also inked ech piece.
For the box (between the two teapot pieces) I followed Amy's tutorial, modifying the size a bit...mine is 5 1/4 x 7 and is scored at 2" on each side. This size fits better between the teapots and is a better size for holding tea bags.
The 3D flowers were cut with George at 1 1/2". I used three blooms for each flower (nine total). I cut two petals off of one flower and overlapped two petals to make the inner part of the flower. Then I cut one petal off of another flower and layered two petals over each other to make the middle layer of the flower. I snipped the point of each of these pieces and then layered them with a whole flower. Each flower was inked and then all three pieces were put together with a brad. To finish, I curled the edges of the petals with my fingers. I added some leafy ribbon to the top of the teapot and attached the flowers.
The tag was cut with Tags Bags Boxes and More at 1 1/2". I stamped the sentiment (CTMH) and attached with a foam dot.
Thanks for looking and have a creative day! :)
