My Finished Tea Box





As you can see, I got a little carried away!  When I was growing up there was a cartoon of a little girl with a dress that was covered entirely with Ric Rac...My Mom called it Ric Rac Raphsody .  And over the years, anything that was just over the top was called that!  What do you think?   I think so.  But once the glue has set, it's too late to change your mind.  I can't imagine this sitting on the counter in my kitchen but I may give it as a gift at Christmas!  Just fill it with tea bags or hot chocolate and slip it down in a gift bag and you are all set.    I used Spellbinders Foliage dies to cut out leaves and shaped them with an embossing tool after I sprayed them will shimmer mist.  The rest is flowers and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts and of course a few stamen stuck here and there!  I plan to do more of these, but not Ric Rac Raphsody so that it can sit on a counter and not collect so much dust!

Have a great Thursday...I'm just hanging out today.  No major chores...I'm sort of tired and just need a good rest.  It's so hot here and I just can't bring myself to get outside for more than a few minutes.  So I plan to relax and recharge before I start again!

Oh my gosh--that is just gorgeous! Whoever gets it as a gift will be thrilled!
Hope you're managing to keep cool. After our heatwave we had up here this past week, I don't even want to think about how hot it must be in your neck of the woods!

Wow! It's gorgeous! I don't see it as over the top. I just see it as incredibly beautiful! Would look great on the dining room table.

I love this box with all the flowers! I'm not sure I would put tea in it, but maybe. It's so gorgeous I know I could find something for it.
