Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - August 17 - Asian Tea Bag


Click for DeetsAre You Waltzing?  On the 17th of every month Waltzingmouse Stamps has a blog waltz.  The theme of this month's waltz is tea/coffee.    My personal preference is tea - and since it is still a hot summer here - mine is on ice. Typical American right?  Since I still haven't gotten the "Afternoon Tea" set I went another route.....   Asian!  And to top it off I thought what better than that great tea baggie template on the Waltzingmouse site  (here's the link: http://www.waltzingmousestamps.com/products/freebie-tea-bag-baggie).

I tried to glam this up as much as possible for a formal look.   I embossed all stamped images on this project.   I used Ranger Adirondack embossing powder color Bottle for my leaves and was surprised to find little specks of red glitter in it.  I used the Labels 10 for my top closure and used velcro to hold the flap down.  I topped things off with a little gold bird cage with beads hanging off gold cord and put a sparkly flower center on the flap.  I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.  Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments!

I am absolutely blown away by this one. I made a Tea Bag Baggie too, and yours is so much better! I love the birdcage stamped on the string part and the embossing is gorgeous. So smart!!

Wow, this is stunning, and considering you didn't have any tea stamps you did great! the Asian theme works so well on the tea baggie, and you're teapot in the back of the shot looks perfect!

Jeanne - this is an amazing tea bag! Stunning how every little bit of detail comes together. I especially love the little beads hanging off the tea tag... :) this is one amazing project - good job on turning asian gardens into a tea-rrific project.
