A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.

I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect.  They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.

There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.

I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green.  This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.

I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.

Tea and Cookie Gift Holder Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I’m dropping in to share a fun little project you can make with 1 sheet of paper, a ruler, and bits and pieces from your scrap and salvage box. And of course some super scrumptious ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It’s a very easy tutorial….and you’ll be making these for every occasion!
First a sneak peek of the finished project:

IMG_3822Okay…now for the tutorial:

IMG_3818You’ll need an 8″ x 8″ square of patterned cardstock. Make sure you pick a sheet that you like both sides of as you can see them when you fold it up.   This looks like a bit of an difficult measuring process…but it’s really too easy.  On the top left corner measure in 2 3/4 inches and make a small tic with a pencil. Turn the page 1/4 turn to the left and measure in 5 1/4 inch and make another tic. Connect the tic with a ruler and fold on that line. Now turn the page 1/4 turn again and measure in 2 3/4 inches and make a tic. Turn the page 1/4 turn again and mark at the 5 1/4 inch. Connect the dots with the ruler and fold on that line. Now you have the outside folds all ready.  Now measure in 1 inch from the right side. Turn the page 1/4  turn and measure in 1 inch from the left. In the opposite corner do the same. With your ruler fold up on the lines creating a strip diagonally down the middle. Now you get to fold!

IMG_3820Fold up from the bottom.

IMG_3821Now fold in from the sides. The white strip in the back is only there to show the shape of it folded.

IMG_3822One more look at the front.

IMG_3823That lovely ribbon I used is Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon…heavily inked for an extra shabby antique look.

IMG_3824 I added some tea bags to the pockets of mine. But sadly there were no cookies to go with the tea : (

See there’s plenty of room for a little bag of cookies. If I had any…which I don’t….I would hope they would be my favorite snickerdoodle or oatmeal cream.  Just sayin : )

I’ll be making up a big pile of these with hot chocolate, little candy canes and cookies…..wouldn’t that make the nicest little gifty?

Okay that’s all for me..wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )
