This super cute tea bag holder was created using the "Tea Cottage" cutting file. I wanted my tea bag holder to be more permanent so I constructed it with fabric! Yup, fabric!! Actually, what I did was cut the template on card stock and using liquid stitch, I adhered fabric to the each shape and sewn parts of them together so they would hold together. The front bottom actual opens up so you can remove your tea bags.
For the roof, I did add batting before I sewn the fabric on. I wanted it to have a cushion look to the roof. Constructing this project was actually very easy. The instructions were easy to follow so you shouldn't have any problems putting it together.
Okay. . .this little box is super cool. You'll see what I mean in the following photos! This box was created using the "Now That's Smashing" template. The leaf on the pencil was created using the "Leaves" cutting file. To complete the look, I added a daisy flower to the pencil.
Okay here is the cool part. . .the box top actually smashes down to close the box. You would push the top down and it closes. With this picture, the box is half way down. The top picture is with the top smashed down completely at a close position.
To open the box, you pull the top part of the box up and it opens up! So cool! I tell ya' this box is super easy and super fun! I love it!!
There is one more template being released today but I didn't have time to create a sample of it. It's a tea pot pull up card (Pot O'Tea) that goes well with the "Tea Cottage" tea bag holder.
Okay, now go hop on to the other designers' blog and don't forget to comment! Good luck!
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
