Good morning! Oakley has his next bilirubin test this morning and a dr. apt this afternoon. Please pray that his numbers haven't spiked and all is well.
I have had requests to share the Teapot instructions, so here we go:
Here's the link to dowload the handout:
Fold a 12 x 6" piece of designer paper in half. Lay fold on Oval Accents Die just below the notch as shown:
Here's a close up of where the fold should be on the die before runnning through the Big Shot:
Cut off paper that sticks out around the edges of the die with scissors before running through the Big Shot. Save this paper. You will use it later for the teapot handle and the rim around the opening.
Cut out with Big Shot:
Open at the fold. Cut off one of the curved ends as shown with Paper Snips.
This piece you cut off becomes your teapot spout! Attach to inside front of teapot with Tombow Mulitpurpose Glue or SNAIL.
Punch the paper you cut off before running through the Big Shot with the Large Oval Punch first, then punch around the negative space with the Extra Large Oval Punch to create the teapot handle.
Punch again in the negative space left from punching the handle to punch the rim of the teapot. You will have two pieces that look like this:
Add handle of teapot to teapot body with Tombow or SNAIL. Adhere the sides of the teapot to each other with a thin line of Tombow, leaving the top notched ends open.
Punch straight edge of top of teapot with Extra Large Oval Punch as shown. (The picture above also shows the teapot with the curve punched in it.)
Layer half of a Tea Lace Doily over a piece of scrap cardstock. Punch with Extra Large Oval Punch, punching almost as far in as you can, lining up the curved punched edge with the curve of the doily. (If you try to punch the doily without the scrap of cardstock the doily just folds up into the punch, yuck!)
Add punched doily to curved edge of top of teapot with a thin line Tombow glue.
Trim top ends of doily with Paper Snips.
Add the Midnight Muse gingham side of the punched curve piece over the edge of the doily with a thin line of Tombow as shown.
Next steps have no pictures:
Add Silver mini-brad to the ends of the teapot you did not adhere with Tombow.
Stamp “Just for You” from Label Love with Island Indigo ink on Whisper White Scrap.
Punch with Artisan Label punch. Pierce hole in top of label with Paper Piercing Tool.
Remove tag from teabag, but
leave the teabag string. Thread string through the new label and tie.(a dental floss threader works great to thread the string through the tiny hole)
Add teabag to your teapot, create a tiny card to insert, or add a giftcard.
You could make a custom matching designer paper envelope if you wish with the Simply Scored Scoring Board and the Diagonal Plate. (or the new Envelope Punch Board Coming soon!)
