Tea Bag Holder using Cups and Kettle Framelit Dies

This project will let your friend make a "Nice Cuppa" tea.  
Whether you're gifting a teabag to someone who is sick, or just to share a fun new tea flavor, 
this is a pretty way to share.

Its also a very a easy project:
  • the card is a half-sheet of paper cut longways: 4-1/4" x 11"
  • Score at 3.5" and 7.5" from one end
  • Score the last section as shown below, discard the upper right triangle
  • Fold along all the score lines. 
  • Cut a white insert 4"x3.25" and adhere to the middle inside panel
  • Fold the right triangular flap in and glue along the bottom edge to make the pocket
  • Cut a length of ribbon about 16" long and adhere to the outsides of the project
    (under what will be the front decoration)
  • Decorate the front as desired

FYI: the lemon is from the coordinating stamp set called Nice Cuppa.  Hard to see in this photo but I stamped it on yellow paper and then brushed over it with a Wink of Stella clear pen. Its really sparkly and glistens just like a fresh lemon, you can almost smell the lemony freshness!  I'm feeling the urge to go brew a cup as I write this.

The teacup is from a set  of dies called Cups and Kettle Framelits Dies, which of course was just perfect for this project.  Its available in the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  

If you like to collect unusual dies then this is definitely one to add to your collection.  Just look at everything that comes in that die set:  silverware, a tea kettle and tea cup AND a mug. Plus various shapes to use to decorate the crockery.  And that "heart" embellishment you see on the teapot, can also be steam like on this project.

What uses can you see for this set?  things like invitations, placecards, table decorations . . . 
If you do like to collect unusual dies then don't wait too long on this one.  We never know which mini-catalog items will carryover to the next catalog - but in my experience the unusual ones tend to be available only for that catalog. And this catalog expires the end of May.
