A Tea Cup Gift

I made this gift for a really good friend who I paid a visit to this weekend. It did match her plastic gloves she had for her sink.............whew!!!! I always loved this Big Shot die when Sizzix came out with it and hoped SU would come out with a version............the waiting was over.....SU didn't come out with it so I went ahead to get it and I absolutely love it. It is simple to assemble and decoration possibilities are endless!!! I love the fact that a tag is also aprt of the die!!! Cool, eh? This is only my first tea cup so I can't wait to make more!!!!

Clear plastic bag removed - green tea bags are wrapped in the tissue

How to make this flower was previously posted on 7/15/2010 if you want to see the step by step. Sponge flower using Lavender Lace ink. Lightly curl the flower petals with a bone folder. Center of flower is die cut from the Blossom Party die and popped with a dimensional. Those "swirly" lavender springs? Those are cut and wrapped around a piercer and attached to the tea cup with Tombow adhesive.

Tag which also came with the die, hung using embroidery floss:

Top view: note the edges of the chipboard were inked with a Stampin' Writen pen

That is so awesome! I just found the die in a web search, and it's a good thing it doesn't work in a Cuttlebug or I'd be in big trouble! :) I never knew it existed!
