Anyone for tea?

Hi there!

Wow - this has been a busy week!  So sorry I haven't been able to post much recently - this whole 'work' lark is really getting in the way of my crafty time, LOL!!  Plus we've been having the most glorious Fall weather - second week of November and we're still experiencing double digits of 14 and 17oc!  I'm sure once the snow hits my craft room will beckon me with greater and renewed enthusiasm!

Anyhow, onto todays posting which is my ABAC project for PaperWorksCo.  I've used the super cute 'Orest the Owl' from the new Forest Critters Collection which was recently released ... aren't those eyes just adorable!!  I've made this sweet Teabag Holder - it's the perfect way to send a little thank you or miss you to a loved one!  I've used the sentiment 'Thanks for Owl you do' which accompanies this stamp.  Papers are from Cosmo Cricket 'Earth Love' collection which Peggy currently has in the Blowout section of the store at some amazing prices!  Orest is coloured with copics.  The branches are the oak leaf MS punch.

Here's a side view of the project showing the sentiment which I placed down the spine of the holder.  When you open it up this is the treat inside ... it contains two pockets for teabags or you could easily place a gift card in one of the pockets should you wish.  There are so many different ways you could use this.  And of course you could dress it up for a Christmas gift too!

I found the tutorial here should you wish to make one yourself.  They are quick and easy ... just my kinda project!  I hope you enjoyed my ABAC project for today.  I just love trying out all these little handmade gifts ... this one has been received very well to the friends I've shown it off to which means I will make more!  :)

I hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Sunday!  Thanks for stopping in at my blog today - I really do appreciate it.  And if you're crafting I hope you can find the time to make a 'Anything but a Card' project and join us at PaperWorksCo ... remember you don't have to use a PWCO image to join in but you'll get an extra entry in the prize pot if you do!  Until next week ... but hopefully I'll have a card or two to show you during the week!

This is really cute, Danielle. I bet it could be altered to hold a gift card too.

This is just fabulous! I can see giving this to someone at Christmas with a matching mug with a matching tag! Too bad we are both on the same DT LOL I would have totally used this idea.
