Asian Tea Holder... (H2H12)











It's a color challenge for this week over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog.



Those 3 colors together scream an Asian feel to me, so that's what I went with.  I found the cute idea of the tea holder on Marika Lemay's blog HERE.  I loved her project and I adjusted it here and there to what I wanted to create, using hers as an inspiration springboard. 

For mine, I used a 7" x 8 1/2" piece of Tulip cardstock, scored at 4" and 4 1/2" along the 8 1/2" length.  And I did lots of random stamping.

Hope I inspired you to create one for a tea lover you know!

Happy creating!  :)


Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  White Daisy, Tulip, Black, and Buttercup CS
Stamps:  Kanji Phrases, Aspiration, and Wisdom
Inks:  Black, Buttercup, and Tulip
Punches:  Corner rounder, 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" circle (EK), 1/4" circle (SU)
Embellishments:  Black bigger brad, and Black stitched grosgrain
Other items:  3x3 envelope flats, Paper piercer, 3D foam tape, Scor-Tape (ScorPal)

Wow this is great! I love it, these would make awesome craft bazaar items. How did you make the pockets on the side that hold the tea bags?
