Thanks for coming back today for some additional details on my 3-D project from the Stampin' Addicts Occasion Mini Blog Hop, the tea bag dispenser.
UPDATE 2/11/13: Do you love this Tea Bag Dispenser Box and would like to make it with the same ribbons and papers? I now have a kit available for purchase. The kit contains papers, ribbons, and embellishments, plus full instructions. Please see this post for more information.
I started off by altering the instructions from this tutorial. Here are my adjustments:
Starting with 6 x 12" Lucky Limeade cardstock, score at 1" parallel to the long edge, score at 3-1/16, 5-3/4, 8-13/16, 11-1/2" parallel to the short edge.
Using your paper trimmer with a scoring blade, score 3/4" above the 1" score line in the SECOND SEGMENT ONLY (see photo). Cut out the 1-3/4 x 2-3/4" piece from the bottom of the second segment and 1/2 x 1" corner piece. Cut between the remaining 1" flaps.
To create the top, score 4-1/4 x 4-5/8" piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock at 3/4" on all sides. Cut and taper the corners as shown.
All other measurements:
Very Vanilla: 2 x (2-3/4 x 4-3/4"), 2-3/8 x 4-3/4", 2-3/8 x 4"
Calypso Coral DSP: 2 x (2-5/8 x 2-5/16"), 2x(2-1/4 x 2-5/16")
Floral DSP: 2 x (2-5/8 x 2-5/16"), 2-1/4 x 2-5/16", 2-1/4 x 1-9/16", 2-1/2 x 2-7/8" for lid
Peach Parfait DSP for lid edge: 2 x (1/2 x 2-1/2"), 2 x (1/2 x 2-7/8")
Chipboard base, covered with Lucky Limeade: 3 x 3-3/8"
For the embellishments on the top, I created an accordion flower out of a punched strip using the Lace Ribbon border punch, just like this post. I also using a running stitch on Victoria lace to create the lacy ribbon flower.
And the tea cup embellishments were created by stamping on shrink plastic with Poppy Parade ink, heating and then spraying with fixative.
Here's a closer look at the notecard.
Thanks for stopping by!
