Biscuits and Tea - Anyone?

Hello everyone, its Colleen here today! From tomorrow the Summer Stamp kit with the theme "Jane Austen meets Charles Dickens" will be available in Digi. So I have a little tutorial for you today using the gorgeous Vintage Lady Mouse Drinking Tea.

I have made a little box filled with biscuits for a gift, its perfect when you getting together for some tea and cake to celebrate a birthday. Something personalised is always better than just taking a packet of biscuits, don't you think?

You will need kraft card stock, patterned paper (fairly thick), doily, Whiff of Joy Sweet Tags with Hearts and Leaves dies, Whiff of Joy twine and cupcake charm - Foodlovers Charms, Whiff of Joy's Sentiments - Festive Occasions stamps, lace, ribbon, leaves, muslin, leaves and flowers.

For the base of the box cut kraft card stock 200mm x 200mm, score 40mm in, on all sides.

Score diagonally in the corners.

Fold the side and the corners in, adhere with double sided tape.

Repeat the above with patterned paper for the top of the box, this will give it a snug fit over the base of the box. If you prefer a slightly looser fit, don't score the sides at 40mm try 37mm instead. I personally prefer a snug fit.

To decorate the top, adhere the doily and cut patterned paper 100mm x 100mm, ink edges and adhere.

Adhere lace, ribbon and tag.

Adhere muslin, coloured image, sentiment, charm, flowers and leaves.

Place some biscuits on tissue paper - YUMM!!!

Wrap the biscuits with some ribbon and pop into the box.

Now you ready to go to tea!

Remember you can always alter the size of the box to suit your need, they are really easy to make!

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and don't forget Whiff of Joy's Blog Hop tomorrow!
