Two Of My Favorite Things...

**Update: See the comments for measurements and brief instructions to make this tea bag and chocolate holder!

For the inaugural stamping session in my new craft studio, I invited 7 good friends to a tea. We crafted, then we had a tea luncheon and then we crafted some more! These are the favors that I made for each guest. (You can come back tomorrow to see the project each guest made - HINT: CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY CATALOG!)

I did use some retired products, but I'm really glad I still have them! I used the specialty paper that is behind my sentiment and decoration. It has rose gold accent "bubbles" all over it and my tableware was gold, white and pink. The decorations were made using Springtime Impressions Thinlits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits for the "enjoy" (retired) and Sweet Cake Framelits for the Soft Sea Foam leaves. The vellum leaves were cut out using the Flourish Thinlits. The vellum stitched banner behind the "enjoy" is from the NEW Farmhouse Framelits Dies, which is available starting today!

I love the details on these thinlits! You can save 10% if you purchase the bundle, which includes the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set:

I will be showing some festive Farmhouse projects when it gets closer to Christmas.

The inside of my tea party favor holds my favorite things - tea and chocolate! There is a Stash Earl Grey tea bag and a Ghirardelli chocolate square. YUM.

I'm celebrating the Holiday Catalog going LIVE today by putting together my order. I have some $5 coupon codes that I earned in August to help me save money. Don't forget to use your codes before they expire on September 30th!

Love your tea party favors. My favorite thing, too. Is the pocket just folded on the sides and attached?

Hi Ladies! The cover for the tea bag and chocolate is a piece of card stock cut 7-3/4" by 3-1/2". Place the long side against the top of your Simply Scored and score at 3-1/2" and 4-1/4". The inside pocket is a piece of 6" x 6" designer series paper that is folded in half and glued along the free edges (put glue very close to edge). Then score it by placing the long edge against your Simply Scored at 2-3/4" and 3-1/4". Cut out half circles on each side using a circle punch. Glue the spine of the DSP to the spine of the cover. Decorate as you please. Hope this helps!
