Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  We’re going shabby chic today with a Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial.  Everything about this gorgeous paper collections says, “shabby me up.”  So I added distressed edges, machine stitching, dry brushing and spattered paint.  Pull your mixed media boots out of the closet, because we are going to have fun today!

Tea Party in a Box with Stamperia Rose Parfum by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

I’m a pushover for rose patterned papers.  I think they remind me of my grandmother’s house.  She had cabbage roses on the sofa in her parlor, and cabbage rose wallpaper in her den.  There’s a cozy, comfy nostalgia built into the design of this paper collection, and I like it!


Speaking of roses, I’ve added a delicious cascade of pink roses down the side of this 6 1/4″ x 6 1/2″ card folio.  We will decorate the card cover together in today’s tutorial, but the focus of the tutorial is actually on the inside of the card.

A Peek Inside

Like all my Tea Party in a Box creations, you’ll find a lovely box pocket inside the card.  I’ve filled this up with all the usual treats including a sweet little honey dipper and a heart charm. Have you given an

The main focus of our tutorial today is the accordion pull out folio situated inside the top half of the card.  I’m going to show you how to use one piece of 12×12 paper to make a 9-panel photo folio with a magnetic closure mechanism.

Look how much room we have for photos!  The side pocket/photo mat pages cover up the spots where the papers were joined together.

Here’s a closer look at all the goodies I’ve tucked inside the box pocket.

    Vintage loveliness in every part of this piece of creativity. I can imagine a vintage lady drinking tea, the cup rim having previously been dipped into rose oil added to castor/fine grain sugar (using egg white on the rim as glue), so as she sipped she could smell and taste the rose parfum. Of course she would be nibbling on the goodies from a teaparty in a box made by Kathy! These papers and ephemera are in my stash and thanks for sharing your beautiful piece, your videos are always motivational.


    Wow! This card is Gorgeous! I love the lacey embellishments and the roses on the front are absolutely gorgeous! I love roses, hearts and the vintage vibe of the card! Great job on it! TFS – Crafty Hugs!

    Oh Kathy, this paper collection is beyond dreamy and I love what you have created with it! Those lacey embellishments and roses on the front are absolutely gorgeous! And the inside is beautiful as well. You always add the most perfect adornments and goodies. This creation reminds me of a perfumery in New Orleans where I order my perfumes from. They have the most beautiful perfume bottles. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
