Mini Tea Boxes...

...Joy To The World...
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I know that this time can be stressful and chaotic at times. Busy malls, crowds, shopping, lines, what to get someone...etc! So I decided to create something for my gifts this year. Well...if you didn't know, my mom just came back from Rome/Italy/Israel. She had a wonderful time and she brought back some tea from Israel. She wanted to share it with some of her friends and her group in mini church. So this is what she tells me: "I am just going to give the tea to them in a ziploc bag". I said what? No ways! So I had to think of something. Then I thought...oh, I was so blessed to receive a original, hand crafted tea dispenser from CHALSIE. If you want to see the post...it's here. I wanted to try to make one, but in a smaller size. Here's what my creation looks like...
It's not too hard to make...once you figure out your dimensions. Then everything is easy peasy. This is what it looks like from the top. I used the new stamp set from SU called "The Sounding Joy"...haha. I had to get this set...not only because it had my name, but because it really sets the tone for the true reason for the season.
here's what it looks like from the front...
I am pretty much done with my Christmas shopping. I just have to wrap and deliver. I plan to make a few more of these mini tea dispensers for some co-workers and friends. Have a Merry Christmas! Try to remember...that if you can't find some Christmas spirit in you this time of year, then you don't have the "Aloha" spirit all year through.

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:32

Be Blessed,

Hi Joy! What a sweet, sweet daughter you are! The tea bags definitely look better in your beautiful boxes than in zip lock bags, lol! What wonderful gifts for your mom's friends!

Leanne

Aw, these are awesome and will bring a very special touch to the tea bags which are also special since they came all the way from Europe. Hey, maybe your mom used reverse psychology on you.. These are fantastic!!
