I'm a little teapot...

Short and Stout, Here is my handle, here is my spout! LOL!
I think I may just be one of the luckiest girls in the world. I feel really blessed to be able to work with Lauren and Papertrey Ink on the "My Timeless Templates" Team. Each time I see what Lauren has put together, I am giddy! This month is no different. This darling little container is ideal for so many purposes. I decided to make this one into a little *tea caddy* of sorts. I will admit that when I first saw this darling container, my mind thought of a tea pot; the shape, size, etc. I had fallen in love with the idea of making the container into a tea pot and struggled with it for way too long. I gave up, photographed it, then decided that it really did *need* to be a little tea pot. I will share both photos, with and without it's costume on! Since I wanted to turn it into a tea pot, what better set to use than Nichole's new "Tea For Two" stamp set. I hadn't quite gotten my fill anyway! It is the perfect fit for Lauren's new "Ready, Set, Wrap" template. I really liked the simplicity, yet utter genius of this new template. I love how it folds, how easy it is to make and the size! It is perfect!

I started out by printing the template onto Ocean Tides Cardstock. I added a mat layer of "Tea Leaves" pattern paper from last month's release as well. I find is so charming and sweet. I stamped the images using True Black. I added some Spring Moss satin ribbon (scrumptious), Cream and White Vintage Buttons and some sewing. I think it turned out really cute, if I do say so myself!


Here is version 1, so you can see how the template would normally look! Don't forget to check out Lauren's Blog (link at the top of this post) for her sample using this fabulous template as well as a tutorial video!Thanks for fluttering by!

What a terrific idea! SU has a template in their demo files that can be requested for free from any demo (Etruscan Vine box template)that will work for this as well.

Gotta love that paper and the stamp set you used also. Very vintage looking.

Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
