The Fancy Pants Designs Time for Spring Collection is such a super cute collection, I loved creating this week's projects. The collection is girly with lots of fun flowers and teapots in pinks, browns, blues and creams. There are adorable die cut words, flowers and frames, and coordinating alphabet stickers that finish off this collection perfectly. This week's Monday Craft Madness theme...
Tea for Two!
Use the tea party/picnic theme, or use the number two as part of your title/sentiment on your projects!
The first thing you need for the tea party is an invitation! I decided to cut out a teapot shape on my Silhouette and use this for the front of the card.
The papers are just perfect for cute little teapot, and I love the word and flower die cuts for a little added decoration.
I then decided to make a cute little 'teabag' gift bag.
Again, I used my silhouette with the matching papers and embellishments. This is definitely MY cup of happy!
And lastly, you can't go to a tea party without cakes! I decided to cover this plain white cupcake box with the same papers.
I first used a brown ink pad to ink around all of the edges of the box, so that there were no white edges showing after I had covered the box with papers. I then just measured each side, inked the edges of the papers and stuck them on!
The die cuts were then added to the front for decoration and to tie all the pieces together.
I hope I have inspired you to start work on your 'tea for two' projects this week. Remember, they can be any project you like - there are so many possibilities!
