A Nice Cuppa Tea Dispenser and PPA287


I attended a meeting of a stampers group here in The Villages yesterday.  The project was a tea dispenser.  I decided to use this project for the PPA Color Challenge.  


The colors in Wildflower Fields DSP (from Sale-A-Bration) were the perfect start to designing my project.  This was also the perfect project to use A Nice Cuppa bundle from the Occasions catalog.



I used the teapot from the Have a Cuppa Embellishments (also in the Occasions catalog) as the knob on top of the lid.  I just hot-glued it on.  


The instructions were adapted from Splitcoaststampers.  The original instructions used 12 x 12 card stock so I tweaked it a little more to use 8-1/2 x 11 since I wanted the base of my project to be Lost Lagoon.   (NOTE:  I have added a tutorial for this dispenser to my blog.  CLICK HERE to see how to make this.)

What a fun day and a fun project.
