Tea Anyone??? (for Embellish-Online)

I am not a HUGE tea drinker, but from time to time, I really need a cup of tea. It calms the soul. It settles my tummy sometimes while I am pregnant.

I came up with the idea to make a tea box, and at first I was thinking larger scale, like to hold a lot of tea, but then I came across this metal gift card tin from Lowes in my alterables stash, and I thought it looked about the right size to hold tea bags, so I tried it and it worked, fit perfectly, and this project was born.

I was thinking you could keep this in your purse and always have tea at the ready for those *stressful* moments when you need it!

I used some more of my Basic Grey Lemonade papers and jounaling cards with transperancies(Basic Grey), which you can purchase over at Embellish-Online. The ribbon I found which just happened to match perfectly, was from Basic Grey Lily Kate collection, which apparently has some similar colors.

Stamps: Tea For Two (Papertrey Ink) Paper: Lemonade (Basic Grey) Ink: Onyx Black versafine (Tsukineko), Wild Wasabi Classic Ink (SU!) Accessories: Lily Kate ribbons (Basic Grey), New Leaf Vintage Buttons (Papertrey Ink), Take Note - Journaling Cards with Transperancies (Basic Grey), sewing machine (Singer), white thread (Sulky)

Hi! I love your tea holder. I need one for myself! The saying on the top - is it the Take Note JOurnaling cards with transparencies? I have never used them and probably never paid attention to them. I love what it says. The Altoid tins aren't always big enough and I had forgotten about the Lowe's tin I had in my stash too! Thanks for sharing!
