Sip by Sip

I have monthly downline meetings and we try to feature at least one new Big Shot idea each time. I am lovin' the Matchbox die, it is such a nice size and has so many possibilities. I found this teapot project by Patti Lee on SCS awhile back and had to try it out. I am not a tea drinker but this is just too cute. Can't you just see these as favors at your next shower or tea party? I don't have daughters but I imagine a little girl would go ga-ga over these at her own little tea party!

We even used SU's Tea Party DSP! The box, spout and handle are almost amethyst card stock. The spout was drawn out by hand and the handle was made with the small and large oval punches. The top has a button adhered with a pop-up glue dot. The sentiment uses part of a stamp from the set, Sip by Sip, now on the dormant list but still available. It is cut out with the Word Window punch and layered onto the Modern Label punch.
A tea bag (or 2) will fit nicely inside to complete the theme. Or...just add chocolate, hehe.
Thanks for stopping by!

Well, I love tea AND chocolate, so can I put one of each in there? LOL! This is so cute, Tracy! I only wish I could have my own tea party! LOL!

This IS a cute project. What a great thing to show your downline! What a pretty tea party table that would make with one at each setting!
