Before Christmas we ordered some different teas, it was so beautifully wrapped that I recycled the packaging to create this wintry art journal page; I hope you like it!
I started by covering the page with the snowflake tissue paper, that the teas were wrapped in, using a glue stick.
Next I cut up the greetings card that came with the tea and stuck the front of the card onto my page using double-sided tape. Then I added some copper outline stickers around the flowers. I covered the “Season’s Greetings” sentiment with two squares which were die cut from the navy blue cardstock from the greetings card and some blue design paper from Craft Sensations. They were layered together and I decorated them using copper outline stickers and a blue snowflake which I had die cut from the same design paper.
The teacup and saucer were cut from the navy blue cardstock using a die set from Crafter’s Companion. They were arranged onto the page with more of the blue snowflakes and copper outline stickers to look like steam rising from the teacup. To finish, I cut some of the navy blue cardstock, mounted it onto some of the blue paper, and added the wording using letter stickers; it reads “Savour this moment”.
It was a lovely surprise to open the box of tea and find it so beautifully wrapped.
We had purchased our normal Ceylon Tea and also two new teas – Chai Spice and Assam Tea.
We also received these complimentary teas too; they all sound yummy! I love the packet designs which I’m sure will end up on a journal page or two (grin!).
As T Stands for Tuesday and my post is all about tea, I’m saying a big hello to the T Gang and wishing you all a very Happy T Day!
Hope that you’re all staying safe and well!
