Winter Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! One of my favorite things about this season is my Winter Feathered Friends who visit my back yard bird feeder. We have a family of cardinals and a lovely bunch of blue jays who brighten the winter landscape all season long. This Winter Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box is inspired by them.
Bluejays and Blue Dark
It’s no secret that I am a fan of winter blues. These icy shades remind me of my Vermont childhood. If you’ve never experienced a Vermont winter twilight, then you may not be familiar with the particular shade of blue that tints the evening hours. We called it “blue dark” and it was absolutely breathtaking. I don’t miss the ice and cold of those winters, but I am glad that I was able to experience those beautiful moments growing up. I’ve tried to re-create that particular event in this creation.
French Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon was the perfect pairing for this project. I topped my triple bow cluster off with some Silver Metallic String to amp up the sparkly, winter feel of this card.
TIP: String tinsel twine through the openings in some vintage lace to add extra winter sparkle to your card design. Top it off with pearls and vintage buttons.
A Peek Inside
The blues carry the day inside the card as well. It’s always fun to tuck sweet surprises into a card design. Take a closer look:
This flap page opens to reveal a mini waterfall folio and a wooden snowflake ornament. The neat thing about snowflakes is, they are a great design feature all winter long!
You could easily put this piece out as winter home décor. Then add in photos of your winter wonderland to make it really special.
Tea Party in a Box
When it’s chilly outside, it’s time to put the kettle on! So I’ve tucked a special little Tea Party for One inside this box pocket.
What a great way to brighten up a grey, wintry day!
We don’t get “real” winter here in North Carolina, but we usually get at least one little snow event each winter. I don’t love it the way I did when I was a kid, but its beauty still makes me smile.
I hope you are staying warm, cozy and creative during these winter months!
