I am working on projects to sell at an upcoming Pop-Up shop for the spring. One of my focuses will be on Mother's Day! Sometimes it is tough when selling papercrafts, we have to be different and appealing for customers. I have always wanted to make tea box dispenser and the up coming shop will be perfect to display. You can search all over Pinterest and the internet to find all different instructions. This is super easy to make.
All products and supplies are Stampin Up! I used the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper on page 188 of the current Annual Catalog. This paper is retiring and is now on the while supplies list. You will need a 12x12 piece of card stock cut to 6x12. I chose Daffodil Delight as the box base. I used the Tea Together Stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the matching framelits. ( this stamp set will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog. How exciting!!!
Using your Stampin Trimmer or Scoring Tool, and the 6" side of the paper at the top. Score at 1". Turn the paper so the 12" is now at the top and score at 3-1/16, 5-3/4, 8-13/16 and 11-1/2" So now we are going to trim, you have 5 sections that measure 3-1/16, 2-1/16, 3-1/16, 2-1/16 and 1/2". Chose the 2-1/16 *that falls in-between the 2-- 3-1/16, you need to score 3/4" above the 1" score line. Cut out the section once scored. Then, cut the 1" flap at the bottom of the 1/2" score line. Cut up to the 1" score line.
For the lid you need a piece of cardstock that measures 4-1/4x4-5/8" Score at 3/4" on all 4 sides. Cut and assemble. This may sound a little confusing so I have added this link to Heidi Baks who goes into detail on YouTube on to make the dispenser. To make the panels, I just measure 1/4" smaller than the box and lid. And decorated with the Tea Together images. The dispenser holds a small box of tea! Adorable!
My card was nice and simple! My card base is Coastal Cabana. My first layer is Whisper White 4x5-1/4" and for the next layer, I used a piece of Designer Paper from the Tea Room pack that measures 3x3-3/4" I stamp flower and Mother's Day greeting, from the Tea Together set and colored the flowers in with Blends (I used Bermuda Bay and Old Olive), I also stamped the same images on Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card. Before adhering to the card base, I added the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon and finished with a bow. At first I wasn't sure how the ribbon would look. But I was quite pleased! Very pretty in person!!!
