Tea Party!

Claire of Waltzingmouse Stamps is hosting a tea party to celebrate her company's second anniversary! And of course she is holding a fabulous contest and one winner will be in stamp heaven! Read all the details here .

Using the free tea holder template, I made this fun bag! The patchwork layer is made up of Emma's Shoppe papers from Crate Paper. I also used a magnetic closure to keep the bag shut. The sentiment comes from Say It With Style. I just may make up a bunch more of these and be ahead of the game for end of the year teacher gifts!


Thanks for looking!
Melissa

Beautiful Melissa! I love the paper you use and the adorable zigzag stitching.

And what a great idea to use these for teacher gifts. I might have to steal that one. :-)

What a great idea! Did you get this template from Nichole's blog? I'm not picturing what the inside looks like...you have a tea bag in there?

Anyway, LOVE the paper selection!
