Little Birdie Crafts Woodland Tales Tea Party in a Box

Hello, Friends!  We’re celebrating the colors of autumn today with this Little Birdie Crafts Woodland Tales Tea Party in a Box project.  If you’re a bird lover, or a lover of the rich copper and turquoise hues of fall, then I think you will enjoy this post.

I truly enjoy making these little flip folio designs.  The 6×6 base is made from one 12×12 sheet of Woodland Tales designer paper.  It’s so quick and easy to score and fold these folios!  I share a simple tutorial for creating just the base of the project below.

Of course, Little Birdie thoughtfully created a flower collection that is perfectly color matched to the paper collection.  Heat emboss and paint some of their lovely Primed Chipboard feathers and tuck them in with the floral cluster and string bow.

The flowers are beautiful straight out of the packaging, but I like to spatter them with paint, too.

Punch a hole in the spine, add a lobster clasp, string on some charms and you’ve got a really pretty bit of eye candy!

A Peek Inside

Create a slash pocket on the inside cover to hold photo mats and mini folios.  The panel on the right is the perfect place to add a photo.

TIP:  Score between a row of 3×4 images and fold to create a lovely little mini folio.  You can journal on the front, then add photos on the back.

Turn the flap page to find a cute little tag pocket and a fun flip/flap page.

The flaps open in opposite directions to reveal a nice sized area for photos.

The central panel holds a box pocket filled to the brim with everything you might need to make a lovely little tea party for one.  I’ve added a honey dipper, honey pouch, Chai tea, chocolate, cookies and a spoon.  This is a great spot to store more photos or recipes once the tea party has been enjoyed.

    I love this one, Kathy!! I do have a question for you- are there any tutorials on your website here, to explain how you make your flash pocket- I want to use these in projects and I need to be sure to make them correctly…. I want to make one of these tea party in a box for my sister’s birthday in December – she’ll love it! I’ve ordered suppli,s and I am really amazed at how thick the Little Birdie papers are! Wow!

      Hi, Barbara! Thanks so much for the kind words. You know, I am sure I probably do have a slash pocket tutorial somewhere…but with over 1000 post on my blog, I could not begin to tell you where. Tell you what I will try to do. I’ll try to work a slash pocket tutorial into an upcoming Throwback Thursday project for you. Or, if you go to Button Farm Club, I know I have slash pockets inside some of my folio and mini album kits. The tutorials are for sale, and you could get the directions there. Wish I could be of more help. Your project sounds wonderful!

    Love this folio Kathy. So happy you did show how to create one. Course you’ve done this in the past, but I needed a refresher. Love the papers. They are gorgeous. Be well & TYFS

    Wow, again you have treated the eye. So many great colour combos and turquoise and browns have always been one of my favourites. Have a great Friday Kathy. Thanks again for such a lovely project.

    Kathy, what a gorgeous tea party in a box. These colors go so well together and of course the little birdie images are sweet as can be. I love the way you do your flip pages, pockets and fussy cut corners. You always create so many wonderful details in your projects. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    My what an endlessly fertile imagination you have. This folio has such beautiful colors and eye catching graphics. Yesterday there was a birdie perched on the roof of our garage just singing its heart out and shouting to the world its happy sound. Your work today makes me “hear” that happy sound again! Just an adorable job my friend and definitely a treat to behold!
