Tea holder tutorial...

Here is a tutorial on making the tea holders:

1. Start with a sheet of cs, cut down to 10X5.5". Score the long side 1" from each edge as shown in picture.

2. Score the shorter side 3.5", 4.5", 8", 9".

3. When you look at your cs, you should see 4 small squares, cut the sides of them so your cs looks like this.

4. Now, Fold all the scored lines using your bone folder. Imagine your cs divided into 3 sections. Tape the small slit flaps in the center section to the larger flaps. This should give you the start of your box shape.

5. Next, tape the long flaps on your "first section" and fold them up and secure them around the "center section" as shown in photo.

6. Basically, you want the edge of the flap you just folded and adhered to be facing the back of the box.

7. This is what your box should look like now.

8. Now fold the sliding lid back and eyeball how long you want your ribbon handle. I stuck down a piece of tape, stuck the ribbon to it, added another piece of tape over the ribbon and then added more tape to the rest of the flap. Line up and secure against other flap. Repeat for other side.

9. This is what the finished edges should look like on the lid.

10. decorate as desired. For quick reference, the turquoise mat on the front of the box is 3 1/4X3 1/4, the patterned paper of the front of the box is 3 1/8 X 3 1/8. The strips on the lid are 7/8" X 3 1/4 (turquoise mat), 3/4X 3 1/4.
Stamps: pun fun. Cs: wild wasabi, tempting turquoise, whisper white and bali breeze designer paper. Inks: blk staz on, tempting turquoise. Access: turquoise grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch, pomegranate stitched ribbon, mega scalloped circle punch, fiskars circle maker, paintbrush and dimensionals.

I hope this tutorial was easy to follow! Enjoy your day.
