G45 Let it Snow Tea Party in a Box Folio Tutorial with Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  It’s Throwback Thursday and I  have a sweet Graphic 45 Let it Snow Tea Party in a Box Folio Tutorial to share with you.  It’ slightly different from the Stamperia Winter Valley TPIB that I shared with you last week, but has some of the same deep blues that I love so  much.  I’m still working on last minute Christmas gifts for friends and family, and I have one more thing I want to get made, but the clock is ticking away every available minute!  Do you think I’ll get it all done?  I dunno….it’s gonna be a close one this year!

Reneabouquets Snowflake Frame and Pine Branches

I’ve featured two of my favorite Reneabouquets winter beautiful board pieces on the cover.  First, heat emboss with shabby blue Stampendous Frantage Enamel, it is the perfect shade of winter blue.

Next, I emboss the lovely pine branches with a clear holographic powder.  Then add some Deco Art Snow Tex and glitter to create snowy branches.  The flower cluster is made with Reneabouquets roses and poinsettia.  I tucked in a tiny Woodland Tree and some bits and bobs from my stash to fill it out.

A Peek Inside

The color palette of this collection, along with the darling songbirds, won my heart.  It’ so perfectly vintage, and a little bit Americana, too.

Pockets and box pockets and loads of goodies can be found within.

And since the holidays provide lots of great photo ops, I added in a big pull out mechanism to house them.  The magnetic closure keeps everything neat and tidy.

Look at all the room for photos!  The pull out is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, so you can even fit larger photos inside with ease.

Of course, once the hot cocoa, tea bags, chocolate, cookies and candy have been enjoyed, you can fit a lot more photos inside the box pocket!

If you’d like to check out this project, I hope you’ll grab a cuppa and join me over on my YouTube channel for the tutorial.


I hope I’ve shared lots of ideas for Christmas crafting with you this month.  Now I  need to get serious about getting my own holiday in order!


There may not be another tutorial until after Christmas.  Family comes first here, and I have a long list of things to get done to make a Merry Christmas for my grandchildren, children and others.

So if you don’t hear much from me over the next week or so, please don’t worry.  Just know I’m in the  kitchen whipping up some cookies, or wrapping presents, or making a last minute gift.

Cleaning house?  Bah, humbug!

Wishing  you all the most joyous, love filled, peaceful and Merry Christmas yet!

With love, hugs and gratitude…
