This is a little tea bag holder. Since I don’t drink tea, I wouldn’t give tea as a gift. So I filled it with Ghirardelli chocolate instead. Because….who doesn’t like chocolate (well…I did meet a few people that don’t like chocolate, but that’s just plain weird!). I created it as a sample for video tutorial for the tea bag holder tutorial.

The holder base is a 3 1/2″ x 7 3/4″ piece of Eggplant Envy cardstock. It was stamped with the swirl and bats from Witching you a Happy Halloween set in Dusty Concord Distress ink.  The inside sleeves were created out of My Mind’s Eye Boo to you paper, adhered to the center with Scor-Tape. Recollection glitter brads were added to reinforce the hold.  May Arts black/cream gingham ribbon was tied around the holder with a gorgeous ribbon buckle (I got from a friend).

The witches hat from Witching you a Happy Halloween  was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It Blending card and colored with Copic Markers (hat: V15, V17, V09, YG01, YG03, YG17, C5, C7 Rose: R17, R29, YR04). The image was cut and embossed with Classic Square Nestabilities and airbrushed with Marker YR04 . Glossy Accents was added over the rose, Stardust Stickles over the green stripes on the hat .

The square was layered on a slightly larger piece of Sour Apple cardstock. The edges were colored with YG03 before the image layer was adhered to it.  A border was paper pierced and Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added The bottom layer is a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut and embossed with the Fleur De Lis Pendant die.

The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock that  had been cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The oval was airbrushed first with Copic Marker R17, then with YR04. Another medium size bat was stamped, this time in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White, cut out, ran through my Xyron 1.5″ Create-a-Sticker and adhered to the upper right hand corner of the sentiment panel.
