Vintage Tea Chest

Hi everyone, thanks for popping by again.

I want to show you a fun Tea Chest that I made for a friend.  She really loves her tea and was saying that she wanted a nice storage box to store her tea. Since she likes both the loose tea as well as the bags of tea I decided to make a drawer for the bags and an open compartment for the loose tea.

I created it using sturdy 110 lb. card stock and re-enforced it with chipboard so it will last.  I added feet and a drawer pull from Tim Holtz and some flowers from my stash.

I hope she likes it!



I am entering this project in the following challenge:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
