Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Tea Party in a Box Tutorial with Reneabouquets:
Hello, Friends! The Christmas train is rolling right along with this Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Tea Party in a Box Tutorial. This is one of my “Use Your Scraps” challenges. I’ll share all my best sneaky tricks for using tiny pieces of designer paper and a few images into a lovely 5″ x 7″ tea party in a box card.
We’re working with leftover bits and bobs from the December Banner tutorial that I shared earlier this month. While I had quite a few images left over, I really had just a tiny bit of the Flourish patterned paper to work with. I think you’ll enjoy seeing how I combined those bits with some lovely Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Mulberry flowers to create this project.
Lots of Lovely Little Layers
So how did I manage to streeeeetch these designer papers? Well, let’s just say that if you could see under all these lovely layers of images, you’d see a lot of naked cardstock. A bountiful flower cluster and strategically placed images are a crafty girl’s best friend!
A Peek Inside
The challenge continued on the inside of this card. I had to figure out clever ways to use odd shaped pieces of designer paper. Thankfully, I had many of the large images from the 12×12 pad left over to help me finish the job.
We even managed to create a little flap page on the top half of the card! I’ll share my secrets with you in the video tutorial below.
But let’s just say for now that a well-placed title covers up an obvious spot where scraps are pieced in. It’s our secret, OK?
The Tea Party in a Box
Since I was low on designer paper, I wrapped my tea treats with cardstock.
Then I added smaller ephemera pieces to dress up the plain cardstock. It worked really well!
