It's TCP Gift Giving Time!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!  It is time for another TCP Tuesday Challenge.  This month's challenge is all about gift giving.  You can find all of the details to play along in the challenge and to have the chance to be the Swanky Stamper of the Month right HERE!
 
I saw THIS TUTORIAL for a tea bag dispenser over on Splitcoaststampers and I knew I just had to try to make one.  I even know who I will be giving this special gift to. 
 
 
This sweet teacup and sentiment are from the Toni's Tea Set.  I paper pieced the cup and saucer.  The tea in the cup and the spoon are colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, C1, C3, E13, and E15).  I added a button from my stash and some Ivory Linen Button Twine to the sentiment.   
 
All of the papers are from the Family Ties collection from Pebbles.  The felt accents are made out of the Green With Envy Felt from The Cat's Pajamas and I used the Icing CutUps on the sides of the box and the leaves and the middle part of the flower on the top are from the Flower Buttons CutUps.  Here are a few close up shots so that you can get a better look.

 
 Here is a close up of the top of the container. 

 
Thanks so much for visiting with me.  Be sure to stop by the blogs of the other members of The Cat Pack.  Some shared their handmade gifts last Tuesday.  A few of us are sharing today and then a few more will have some gift ideas for you on next Tuesday.  Have a beautiful day!  Until next time...Toodles! :D
