Christmas Countdown

søndag 27. mars 2011


I have made a teabox, and it was so fun to make!
I've seen it made in other blogs, but when I started looking around, the only tutorials I could find was for After Eight chocolates (isn't it typical..!) Well, I used one of those, and just measured it up for teabags - I think it turned out rather good :)
Again I've used a Magnolia stamp, I don't think I'll ever get tired of them :)
The image is coloured with ProMarkers, and I've used some glitter to highlight the wings and a few details on Tildas clothes (I know - it doesn't show in the pictures, but it is there).
All edges are very lightly roughened and brushed with DistressInk.
I ran a ribbon through the holes on the diecut (Nellie's Multiframe), then tied a bow at the bottom - below Tildas feet.
I tried to keep the decorating simple on the lid, with a lace around the edge and some flowers, pearlstrings and beads on top of it - it should be possible to open the box (for refilling) without ruining it...
I'll enter these challenges with my teabox:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbons, Pearls/Rhinestones and Flowers
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Ribbon
Scrapperiket - Blomster og Perler (Flowers and Pearls)
Just Magnolia - "Eyes down" - Bingo ( I chose the line with "Distressing, Flowers and Paper")

I hope you like my Teabox

  1. Så flott denne var, og for en god idè!
    Kan boksen trekkes oppover, eller er den fast, slik at man bare drar teposen ut av glippen nede?

    Kjempelekkert dekorert, og veldig flott fargelegging:)

    tusen takk for at du deltar i utfordringen vår!

    Linda, Scrapperiket
