Tea Anyone?

First I want to show you guys just how messy I am...this is my work area.  I'm not sure how it's possible to make anything with this postage stamp size work area.  I have stacks of material everywhere!

And on the side:
These are boxes in the making and here are some of the finished products

Here's a close up of the tags attached to the outside:

I got the dimensions and instructions for the boxes on  Go to their tutorial section.  The "Merry and Bright" tags are cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and the copper stripes are from a stamp set that came with the cartridge (CTMH).  Merry and Bright are an old stamp from Stampin' Up.  The gold mesh ribbon was bought at a yard sale for $.25 the roll.  Papers are just a mixture from my stash.


  1. Actually, your stamp space looks a lot like mine - stuff scattered everywhere! I guess I must work well in that atmosphere because it always seems to be like that no matter how much I clean up and organize. Love your boxes and tags. Are these going for a boutique sale?

  2. Yes, Maggie. I'm making some for the boutique I'm participating in on November 1st. I want to make a few more plus some with Christmas paper.

  3. Wow, your boxes are gorgeous!! I love the designs!! They look so amazing!! My craft room looks very similar...stacks of materials piled everywhere with one small space cleaned off to craft ;) Have a great weekend :)

  4. They turned out great! I work that same way, so don't feel bad.
