Tea Time at Hawaii Ink

I am a member of Hawaii Ink, a group of about 90 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  We are sharing some ideas from the Holiday Catalog.  You have just come from Lisa's blog,  Don't worry if you are just starting on the hop because you can complete the hop no matter where you start.

This is the time of year that I am busy working on craft show merchandise.  Everything I make, unless it is something personal that I need, is something that can be displayed at a show.  I have several customers that come looking for teabag holders.  As soon as I saw the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Paper in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I had to have it for my teabags.   There is nothing new about them but tea parties and tea rooms are quite the thing to do around here.  Other holiday products I used on this project include the Festive Flurry stamp set with the matching Festive Flurry Framelits and Encore Silver Ink.  

This is another type of teabag holder that I make.  It will hold two teabags or one teabag and a gift card.  It also has a pocket for a package of homemade cookies.   I used the Foil Sheets to make the bow using the Gift Bow Bigz L Die.

If you want directions for making either project, just ask by leaving a comment.

Starting Tuesday I will be posting more Holiday Catalog projects.  Make sure you come back to take a look at them.

If you have already seen Beverly's project, you are done with the hop.  If you haven't visited with Beverly yet visit her at

If somehow you got lost on the tour, here is a list of all of us participating in the Hawaii Ink blog hop.
