High Hopes Challenge #109


It's time for the High Hopes Challenge
This weeks challenge is
Alter or create a 3D Box or Bag

My first project is an altered tea box using the
adorable "Teddy for Tea" image
and " Me N' You" sentiment

I covered a box of Lipton tea with DP
I embossed the image with black and
painted it with Tombows. I used my Nesties
ovals for the frames. I made the rose for the
top of the box with my small pear punch for
the petals and my MS frond punch for the leaves
and MS fern punch.


My next 3D project is a tea bag holder.
I am using an older High Hopes image
from their original catalogue...

"Aunt Shirley's Tea"
"Tea Tag"

To create the card tea bag holder I used
the directions by Beate Johns @ SCS

I added an extra folder inside for mine as
well as making the card larger.
I embossed the images with black
and painted the cup and tag with
Heavenly...H2o's. The flowers and
leaves are painted with Tombows and I used
a Gelly Roll Metallic pen for the gold trim.
The border is done with a MS punch and
I added some flat backed pearls.

The tea bag in the cup is a Lipton individual
tea bag in a net bag and
the bags inside the holders are individually
wrapped in packages.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog
as the Diva's have created some
amazing 3D projects to share with you!!!

I hope you will have time to play along with
us this challenge and
You must use a High Hopes image to
play along!!

Have a wonderful day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
