I have for you a gift idea. Perfect for someone you want to remember, yet don't have a lot of money in the budget for. I think it would be fabulous for a teacher, coworker, friend, or daycare provider. I got the idea from a wooden tea box I received from my best friend last Christmas. I was so proud of myself for coming up with the box! Its simple but I am not so great at the 3D thing. The size is based on the size of my Stash brand tea bags. The sides of the box are 1 1/4 inches. The base is 8.5 inches. So it pretty much uses up a full sheet of cardstock. The width is 3.5 inches. I made the accompanying lid 1/4 inch bigger in width and length. All materials are PTI except for the lovely plaid stamp which I got at waltzingmousestamps.
I used PTI's scarlet jewel and cream cardstock. After I cut the lid to size I scored it and stamped it in scarlet jewel with my plaid stamp from Waltzingmouse. Then I punched the edges with my Fiskars Threading Water punch. Next I stamped the teapots from Tea for Two onto cream cardstock and cut them out with rectangle nesties. I ran a length of scarlet jewel saddlestitch ribbon down the length of the lid and then adhered the teapot panels. I stamped a sentiment from Tea for Two in cream on scarlet cardstock. I cut it out and rounded the corners. Then I adhered it and added some cream and scarlet buttons
On the bottom part of the box I stamped some sentiments from Tea for Two. I did the stamping before putting the box together. On the inserts I stamped the little cup from the Everyday Classics set.
A couple more shots of the end and the inside. Hope you like this project and it gives you some ideas for inexpensive and thoughtful gifts.
