Tea Boxes

I made these tea boxes as gifts for my group meeting—for the gals who volunteered to demonstrate as well as the presenter and the award card maker.  Thank you gals so much for all you did!

I just bought boxes of tea, cut out a little opening on the flap of the box, cut the whole top of the box off—almost an inch—then taped the remainder of the flap shut.  Then I just cut designer paper, about 1 1/2 inches longer than the box, folded it around the box to get an idea where the folds would be, then I cut up from the bottom on the center 2 folds.  There’s no one right way to do it-so just have fun.  The lid goes like this: measure each direction of the opening. Add 1 1/2” to the length and 1 1/2 inches to the width and cut.  Then score at 3/4” from each side on your Stampin’ Score. Cut one fold of each corner and fold up and glue.  Then I put sticky strip around the edge and added pleated ribbon.  Tash made the roses for me—I’ll see if she’ll do a tutorial for you!
