Decorate to Celebrate #48 - Tea Time

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous start to April!! It's time for another super-fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate. For Challenge #48, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a Tea Party!! Let's celebrate everything wonderful about little tea sets, sugar cubes and tea cups with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more  :)


Growing up, my sister and I were never girly girls. We played with Barbies and stuffed animals, but we would have rather been outside playing kickball or softball and getting dirty. We never had tea parties. So I was struggling a bit with this challenge, until I found THIS tutorial on how to make a paper tea cup.


The papers are from Basic Grey's Out of Print stack and heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The plate was made from a Spellbinders Beaded Circles Die and a Spellbinders Standard Circles Large die, adorned with crystals.


The invite was created with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square and Spellbinders Classic Squares Small die, the edges inked with Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink. The teapot is from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea Time stamp set. It was colored in with TH Broken China Distress ink and a TH Waterbrush. "You're Invited" is from the K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set.

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Tea Party project...I can't wait to see what you create :)
