March Stamp Club: Tea Bag & Cookie Holder

Tea for two, and two for tea.  I love tea... iced tea, hot tea, chai tea, sweet tea, Texas tea (1/2 sweet tea and half lemonade--at least that's what my dad called it!).  This little tea bag and cookie holder is just darling, isn't it?!  This was from a demonstration at the San Antonio Regional in January.

Cut Everyday Entantment DSP to 8 1/2 x 12.
On the 8 1/2 side, score at 2 1/2 and 6.
On the 12" side, score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5, 7, 9 1/2 and 10 3/4

Cut the squares out in all four corners.
Fold in the corners.

Fold in your sides with the flaps on the inside.

Fold up and fold the top flaps over.
Punch holes with Crop-a-dile.

Thread ribbon through holes.
Add cookies in cell bag

Tie closed.

Add a little tag.
Very Vanilla is 2 3/4 x 2 3/4.
Poppy Parade Tag base is 3 x 3.
 Stamp flower and verse from Tea Shoppe in Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade.

Place tag and tea bag in pouches.

Buttefly Tags

What do I do with scraps?  Besides die cut Butterflies?  Make tags out of them!
Remember eyelets?  I haven't used mine in forever.  Not sure why!  I have tons of them.
Here, I've used eyelets to secure two butterflies together.

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

More butterflies

More random butterfly cards.  So far, I have not gotten bored of die cutting butterflies.  I find it therapeutic to run scraps through the Big Shot and die cut butterflies.  It feels magical!
