April Papertrey Blog Hop


Two posts in one day, I know!  I put my quiet time this afternoon to good use and decided to play along with the Blog Hop!  I can't wait to see everyone's creations using the Timeless Templates!  I used Lauren's Recipe Wrap Up template (it's free, so go now and get it!!) to make a fun tea sampler.  I trimmed the template down to 4 1/4" tall, so the wrap portion only takes one sheet of cardstock!  And, of course I had to use the new Tea for Two set which I am loving right now.


I have also been dying to use this cherry paper from Jenni Bowlin.  And the yellow gingham from Pink Paislee.  I bought them together thinking they looked so cute together and this was the perfect project to use them!


There is a removable wrap to hold the entire thing together.  My mom carries the Harney & Sons tea in her tea house, and the packages are so cute and colorful.  I didn't have any left here at home to photograph with it, but the packages are a little larger (taller) and the name of the tea shows through the punched oval.  I had to get by with photographing what I had in my cupboard...
