Today's project is this beautiful tea bag holder that doubles as a dispenser. It's a project that is perfect for all those tea drinkers in your life! You can fit a whole box of tea and totally customizable to match anyones decor!
To make this tea holder, I used the new Stampin Up suite called Ornate Garden. You get a sneak peak of what is to come in the new Annual Catalog in June.
I have made this project in the past and I would like to say it always went without a hitch, but sadly i seemed to get hung up on some the measurements that were out there. This time I worked on modifying to simplify the process. So here goes.
You will need
Designer paper for layers
Cardstock for layer and lid
To make the dispenser:
To make the lid:
To decorate the outside of the box, I decided to use a layer of cardstock first, then 2 different patterned designer paper from the Ornate Garden DSP. The colors I used are Mint Macaron and Terracotta Tile.
To add the cardstock layer you need:
To add the DSP layers for the top portion of the box:
To add the DSP layers for the bottom portion of the box:
To add the cardstock and DSP for the lid:
To create the base of the box, you will need a piece of chipboard that measures 3 1/2"x3 1/2"
you will also need 2 pieces of cardstock that measure 3 1/2"x3 1/2". Glue them onto the top and bottom of the chipboard, you can also sponge the sides of the chipboard, I just left it as it.
To adhere the box to the base, you will need to carefully glue the tabs onto the chipboard. Make sure to center as best as you can.
The take a piece of DSP that measure 3 1/8"x2 3/4" and glue it on the inside to cover the tabs.
To decorate the box, I took a piece of ribbon and wrapped it around, covering the seams from the 2 DSPs I used. I added some diecut flowers from the Ornate Garden Suite and the greeting is from the Tea Together stamp set. I finished it off with some rhinestones and it's ready to fill with some favorite teas.
What do you think? I love it too! I can't wait to make more and have these ready for gifts to give to some special people.

Hello Crafters! Welcome to the February Stampin Friends Blog Hop!! I' so excited to share this month's hop with you! This hop is literally jammed with so many awesome projects by so many amazing hoppers. I just love this theme, I feel like I have my tried and true supplies and projects I just love to make over and over and it never gets old. Can you guess that our theme is Favorites.
Be sure to hop along and visit everyone's blogs, if you get lost, be sure to scroll down to the end of each blog to find a list of hoppers. I hope you came from Jean Bolen Beaulieu, her projects were just awesome. After you view my blog, be sure to leave a comment!!! And then continue to Katja Ettig's blog. If you are not sure whose blogs you have visited, you can find a list of hoppers at the bottom of each blog!
At first, I thought, how am I going to figure out my favorite crafting project or product? I was like there is way too many. But then I thought, what do I make the most, Gift Card holders!!! And the Coffee Cafe stamp set and matching dies is my go-to. I choose this set over and over and over for gift giving. It's the perfect set to use for coffee gift cards. I decided to combine Coffee Cafe with the new Best Dressed Suite. 2 of my favorite things, coffee and lipstick!!!
Be sure to keep the adhesive close to the edge so you can still add the gift card or folding money in the pocket.
The DSP I used is from the Best Dressed Suite. I cut 1 piece at 3 1/4"x 2 1/4" and 1 piece at 3 1/4"x1 3/4". Adhere to the cardstock. You could create a belly band to keep the holder closed. But I used a little velcro dot and adhered it to the top flap.
Use the lipstick die, from the All Dressed Up framelit set, to cut 3 lipstick tubes, I used Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss.
Cut off the tip in Blackberry Bliss and cut the bottom off the Smoky Slate, and then layer them together. I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to give a little more dimension. See photos below.
I used Purple Posy for the cup base, I cut out the dome lid in vellum so it looks more like the clear lids, and then Whisper White for the whipped cream. I added a little whisps of Smoky Slate so it looks real.
The greet was so fun, I stamped the Be as bold as your Lipstick from the Dressed to Impress stamp set in Blackberry Bliss, then I took the greeting 'Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend' from Coffee Cafe and just used my marker, colored, just the word "COFFEE" in Old Olive and stamped it at the bottom, I wrote in the &. Now my greeting says Be as Bold as your Lipstick & Coffee! I Love it!
So much fun to make and so easy. I know my girls will be grabbing these for any upcoming parties for friends.
The DSP was cut at 3 1/4"x3 1/4" and 3"x3". I created the lipstick the same way as before. The coffee cup is in Whisper White, but I did the greeting the same and the is in Old Olive. I added a Doily I had on hand and there you have it, done...Super easy.
Now, if you needed a white pizza box only had gold, you can fold the score lines opposite and have the white inside, become the outside. 2 in 1. As you can see from the picture below, you can fit a good amount of stuff inside and a gift card fits too!!!
Below is just a few projects I used with Coffee Cafe, there's just so many. And if you have this set and need ideas, feel free to use these and there is tons more on Pinterest.
I hope you enjoyed my "Favorites" be sure to leave a comment, I'd love to hear what you think.
Continue along the hop to Katja Ettig's blog. She is amazing and you won't want to miss her projects!
The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set is a fun one to bring out the smiles and you can see its versatility with our projects here. To create a darling valentine, we paired the set with From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The beautiful For You card shows how to pair sentiments with embellishments, in this case, the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And on our cute birthday box, we combined the stamp set with the Bonanza Dies. There are so many ways to share creativity—and Sale-A-Bration!

Today I created two fun projects for an upcoming card club! Since Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away, I wanted to focus and get a little head start.
My projects feature Stampin Ups new From the Heart Suite! This gorgeous suite can be found in the new 2020 Mini Catalog! The DSP is beautiful and several of the sheets have a foiled appearance! And best of all you can use the Heart Punch Pack to punch out several of the hearts on the paper!
The card was created using a sheet of Real Red cardstock cut to 5.5x8.5 and scored on the 8.5 side at 4 1/4. I added a layer of DSP on top that measures 4x5 1/4 next I took another piece of DSP and cut a frame using 2 different sizes of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I cut out several hearts using the Heart Punch Pack. On one of the red hearts, I stamped the dotted outline from the Heartfelt Stamp set in Real Red, the punches it out nd 2 of the hearts are punched out right from the DSP! So easy! The Happy Valentines Day greeting is from the Meant to Be stamp set, which is in the current annual catalog!
This card was so simple to make and so quick that I was Able to
create multiples fast.
Have you tried the Copper Dotted Treat bags?? They are such pretty bags! I don’t know why I waited to use them! Similar to the card, I punched out a bunch of different hearts from the DSP and cardstock and I used the same greeting! I added a little Valentine Cheez-it snack that I found at Target. They are mini bags but so cute!!! Depending on who I give the bags to I might fill with candy or cookies too!! These bags are a great size at 4 3/4x 6 1/2 and are food safe!! I used a retired twine to make the bow and I came across these mini clothes pins I had on hand! I either purchased these at Walmart or A.C. Moore.
What do you think?
Really cute and easy to make right??

I love making little treats to give teachers, family, friends. The hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works are perfect for this! They are affordable, have cute designs, smell amazing and everyone loves them!
You can find many designs if you search Google or Pinterest. But I stick with this type of box to hold them! I like how it fits and you still have space to decorate!
To make the box, you will need a piece of cardstock that measures 3 3/4" x 4 3/4".
Score it on the 3 3/4" side at 1" and 2 3/4". Then turn the paper to the 4 3/4" size and score at 1" & 2"
Fold all the score lines.
On the sides that measure 4 3/4", cut the score lines to create tabs.
Fold the middle tabs in and adhere the bottom tabs on the outside to create the box.
The you going to cut at a diagonal from the top of the box side down to the top of the tabs. (My picture shows the completed box, but hopefully this makes sense) Contact me with any questions.
I chose to match up the box to the style of the sanitizer, this one was called Vampire Blood. So I used a pieces of Real Red cardstock (measure 1"x6" and 1 3/4"x2 1/2") and embossed the pieces with the new Stampin Up embossing folder called Stylish Scroll. I then sponged the edges with Basic Black to give it an old look. The Vampire stamp is also from Stampin Up the stamp set is Spooktacular Bash. I made a layer by cutting the Vampire out and the greeting using a framelit from Stampin Up's Ornate Frames Dies. Added glue dots to the top of the greeting so you can lift the Vampire up. I adhered them to another die from the same size! Love it!!
I also completed another set for the Ghoul Friends scent. I used the Stampin Up stamp set Spooky Fun & Halloween Scenes Dies. I think I prefer the witch flying across the moon, so I will up the rest of the boxes and finish them that way!!!
I hope you enjoyed this project!
Let me know what you think!
Happy Halloween & Happy Stampin'
