Spellbinders Susan’s Victorian Garden Peach Tea Projects with Prima Peach Tea


Hello, Friends!  Spellbinders Susan’s Victorian Garden dies have just released, and I have some really fun Peach Tea themed projects to share with you today.  Y’all know I love my tea, and as a honorary southern gal, I definitely love iced tea!  Playing with these dies was so much fun, and I  kind of let my imagination take over while making these projects. Both were made with Prima Sweet Tea collection.  So why not grab a cuppa and a snack and join me for a little online tea party?

Victorian Tea Cup and Saucer Tea party in a Decorative Box

I’ve been having loads of fun making little boxes lately.  If you missed out on them, you can find those tutorials HERE and HERE.

Today’s shabby chic Victorian Tea Cup box is larger (4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″) but the process for making them is the same.  Instead of dry embossing this box, I lined it with Prima Peach Tea papers and decorated it with Susan’s Victorian Garden Teacup and Saucer. It’s resting on a lovely Reneabouquets  Cherry Blossom wreath.  The itty bitty spoon, key and decorative (not functional in this case) metal hasp are also from Reneabouquets.

What would you put into a peachy tea cup other than a spray of peach blossoms?  Susan’s Victorian Garden Lavender (from the Mason Jar die set) makes perfect peach blossoms, too!

TIP #1:  Die cut dozens of itty bitty blossoms using the die that comes in the Mason Jar set.  Use 3 shades of colored cardstock (dark peach, light peach and white) to lend a more realistic, shaded appearance to the blossoms.

TIP #2: Here’s a hack for adding all those itty bitty blossoms to the branch.  Shape the blossoms by pressing a small stylus into the center.  That’s all you have to do.  Then flip the blossoms face down.  Apply your glue to the floral portion of the die cut, then pick up the blossoms from your work space.  This saves loads of time!

TIP #3: Save out some single blossoms to scatter on the tag and box base.

A Peek Inside

Fill the inside of your box with a tea party for one: wrap a Mango/Passion Fruit Herbal Tea Bag (Stash brand) up in a tea sachet; use paper scraps to dress up a Biscoff cookie packet and Ghirardelli chocolate; then tuck in a sweet little vintage silver plate demitasse spoon as the crowning touch.

As you can see here, I also fully lined the box interior to give it a really finished look.  The 4 1/4″ square blank note card fits perfectly inside so you can add your own personal greetings to the gift.

Susan’s Victorian Garden Mason Jar and Lavender Sweet Peach Iced Tea Party in a Box Card

If you’ve never enjoyed the pleasure of drinking a tall glass of Southern Sweet Peach Iced Tea, you really need to put it on your bucket list!  Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day!  This 5×7 Tea Party in a Box Card is a tribute to the joys of sweet peach iced tea

I could not resist turning the Mason Jar Die into a shaker element.  You do need to use transparent foam tape for this, but the end result is certainly worth it!

Build a 1/2″ deep box pocket inside this card (there is a basic tutorial HERE) then fill it up with tea treats.  Now your card is a gift!

I’ve hidden a little tag pocket and sentiment card behind the flap page at the top of the card.

Look at al the goodies I  managed to pack into this pocket!  There’s a 3-pack of Celestial Seasonings Herbal Peach Tea Bags, chocolate, cookies, honey stick, vintage demitasse spoon and wildflower seeds!  How fun is that?

I’ll have more Susan’s Victorian Garden samples to share with you soon.  This weekend, we are entertaining dear friends from Atlanta, so I need to get out of my pajamas and get ready for their arrival.  Maybe I’ll brew up a pitcher of Peach Iced tea…I’m suddenly craving it!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend!

    Talk about nice timing…a couple days ago I ordered this Victorian Teacup die set…love the shape of the cup. These 2 projects are so lovely…so many beautifully designed elements to draw my eyes. Beautiful work, Kathy!! Many of Susan’s flower die sets are in my inventory…her realism is so dramatic…especially love her hydrangeas and lilacs. Do you ever use her tiny ladybug dies?
