Thursday Rummage Bin Nights: Week #4 The Ticket Counter

This week's featured stamp set is The Ticket Counter. This for me, is a gift giving set, meant to engage with friends and family through cards, and add tickets to layouts as well. You can invite a friend or significant other to Dinner and a Movie, offer a free night of babysitting, give a tin of homemade cookies with a card that has a ticket for homemade treats. Afternoon Tea is my favourite stamp, along with the tea pot. So I have used those for my featured project below.

Project: Summer Tea Box
  1. Place scrapblock onto table and ink. With our hand inside the box, press down onto the stamp, ensuring that it does not move. Repeat to other side.
  2. Stamp ticket with pink ink onto photo paper. Stamp afternoon tea in black. Cut out ticket.
  3. Glue ribbon to the center of the box, all the way around.
  4. Glue ticket to front.
  5. Stamp tea pot on a cut out circle on photo paper in green. Die cut a scalloped circle out of photo paper, and use pink ink to dye it. Glue together.
  6. Thread string through tea pot tag and tie it to the metal handle. Thread some beads to the 2 ends.
  7. Fill with specialty tea bags.
