Tea for Two

Hello...I'm really enjoying the lull in-between our busy work schedule. It's given me a little play time :)
Today I decided to make up a little project I've had in mind for quite some time...bought the cut file for this aaaaages ago and haven't used it...today was the day :)

This is a little pouch that holds two teabags. I thought it was soooo cute when I saw it, I just had to get it! I couldn't resist those cute little teacups and teapot lol The file comes from Paperthreads and is a Just Laury design.



This was a lot of fun to make...I'll definitely be making more! The body of the pouch is Kaiser DP. The teapot, cups & inside printed panel have been cut from Graphic 45 DP and the other pieces are cut from SU Very Vanilla. It was really quick & easy to make :) I sponged the edges of all the pieces (except the main body piece) with SU Creamy Caramel, which is, sadly, a retired colour...I love that colour! The sentiments are both SU.

I've popped two Earl Grey teabags inside.

There's not even any colouring on this project :) Well, not if you discount the tiny bit of pencil shading on the crockery lol

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Make the Cut Designer Challenge - Use a Paperthreads file
The Paper Players - Cup of Joy Challenge
Anything But a Card - Challenge #3

Thanks for looking...........have a wonderful day :)
