MFT/ScorPal Blog Hop!

 
Welcome to the MFT/ScorPal hop! These two companies' products work fantastically together! 
Today's project is a really sweet tea set. I made my own little covers for my tea bags and a little box and card to finish off the presentation. There are some step out photos as you scroll down as well as a supply list at the bottom of the post! 

To make the little tea bag covers I took 2"x6" strips of patterned paper and scored them at the 2.75" mark and the 3.25" mark. I love the little Scor-Buddy with the multitude of scor line options.
I used one of the "Time for Tea" Die-namics to make a little handle at the top. I did all three at one time through my cuttlebug....no problem :)
Here is a side shot of when I inserted my little bag.
I couldn't let those little tea cups go to waste that I cut out so I used Tim Holtz mini stapler to fasten them to the tea bag strings.
I pulled out my full size Scor-Pal for the scoring of my large box. You can see the score lines in the photo and then I added some patterned paper side panels too.
Here is a close look at the sweet lil' card that goes with it. I added a few more score lines to the clean white card.

Lots of designers are participating in this hop! You can find the list on the MFT blog! Happy Hopping!
