Hello! How are you? I can hardly believe the month of January has come and gone… what about you?
I’ve been busy living life in the real world and enjoying a little extra time away from my work. It’s amazing how a job can consume so much of a persons time leaving little left for the funner things in life...like creating! Oh yes, I know, “funner” isn’t actually a real word, but I like to use it anyway.
There is one part of my job that I dearly love and that’s our annual Tea Party. This year it will be held at the end of February so my friend Nancy and I decided we better start early on our “Tea Treats”… before the month slipped away. We both decided to make cookies and package them up with pretty ribbons and bows…or paper roses.
This is what we came up with for Nancy’s guests. We started with a plain paper mache` box, then cut strips of pattern tissue 5” wide, folded it in half, and began to roll it into paper flowers. Tie it off with pretty ribbon, hot glue it to the lid, and “Viola,” you have yourself the cutest little cookie boxes ever!
I found this idea on Heather Bullard’s blog about a year ago and thought the idea was so sweet and perfect for a tea.
Oh, do you see the darling plate in the second picture? Nancy made them from tissue paper and glass plates…too cute, don’t you think? Me too!
Well, I’ll be spending my day working on my “Tea Treats” and when I’m done you’ll be the first to see what I came up with.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend…any fun plans?
