Time for Tea

by Teresa Horner | March 26, 2016

Hey Ruby Rock-it fans it's Teresa here on this Fabulous Friday with a fun share using the brand new "Faded Empire" Paper Collection.  I had so many ideas for this collection but the one thing that really caught my eye was all the gorgeous roses and the colors so i decided to make up some special gift bags for hosting a tea and a few other goodies to decorate and give out for my guests.

By far one of my most favorite things to do in life is going to tea.  I love the biscuits, the lovely little sandwiches and all the other special yummy things you get when you go.  So with my mind spinning with all the ideas -- i got to work to create a few boxes and bags to have my own tea or maybe even give a few as lovely gifts for Mother's Day.  

For the top acetate gift box i thought it would be fun to make a cute cover for it.  I used a die to cut the gorgeous papers and layer them over a belly band i put all around the box.  Then i added a few of the die cuts and some beautiful ribbon.  And of course it needed a few jewels so i added rhinestones and the droplets to give it a little more shine.  I really love how this one came out with the crown.
And below that is a pretty placecard that i did up quick if you decide to have your own tea.  It's super easy with the dies and the droplets look quite nice on it.  All you do is print up their names with a beautiful calligraphy pen or do them on the computer and print them out.
And this Tea giftcard was really fun to make.  I love using things in a different way and originally this middle piece on the tag had a heart on it but i found the clock covered it perfectly and then i added one of the lazer cut wooden keys and a bow.  Inside i put "It's time for Tea" with a small pocket i did with paper and then i can add a few tea bags or maybe even a Tea Gift card.  If you ever find the paper needs to pop a little more be sure and add some chalk ink around the edges. 
 It really makes it look nice.

And i just kept going as you can see.  There is so many beautiful patterns so i also made this pretty heart box by covering the sides and top with paper and then adding a bit of lace and bling to it.
The tag on the bottom left comes in the die cuts so all i had to do for that is add ribbon.  So easy!
And lastly who wouldn't want to have matching coasters for your tea cups?  These were so easy to die cut with some dies from my stash and now everyone can have a lovely tea and chat the afternoon away.  Couldn't think of a more fun way to spend the afternoon!
Thanks so much for stopping over to see what's new on the Ruby Rock-it blog and i hope that you all have a really wonderful day .....
