Tea Bag Dispenser
In honour of January being "Hot Tea Month" (I kid you not) I thought I would make this nifty Tea Bag Dispenser as a gift. I saw the idea for this project on 2 sites - RunningwScissorsStamper and on Scrapparazzis Blog. I had these ideally wrapped teabags for it and naively thought I could knock this up in next to no time. Yeah, right !!
This first one I completely messed up the measurements with the second one not being too much better. I then decided not to waste any more cardstock and that I would use the second one making it up as I went along. Well, 4 evenings later I managed to finish the box after everything that could go wrong did. I will not be making one of these again, not unless I find a suitable die to cut the container and lid out first.
Here is the lid decoration on which I used Magnolia dies called Doily Flower and Rose Leaf. The tag is a Go Kreate one called Concentric Tags and the sentiment used is from a Flourishes set called Taglines.
