3D Paper Tea Pot


Happy Monday!

Seems like its been a while since I last posted! Even though I haven't posted any projects, I have still been busy crafting! Just not enough time to post them :(

But, I wanted to make sure I made time to share a quick project that I worked on last night for a very good friend of mine. It's my friend Elaine's birthday today! Not only is she a wonderful nurse, she is also one of the kindest, sweetest and funniest persons I know! She always makes me laugh :) If she knows I'm working, she makes a point of finding me and leaves me a note or a treat! So I thought I would leave her a treat on her desk today. Since I know she always takes the day of her birthday off,  I thought I would leave her this little surprise! (I'm hoping she won't check my blog tonight!) 


A few years ago Elaine invited me go go back home with her to Hong Kong, well circumstances changed for her and she was no longer able to go... but since my husband and I had already planned on going we took advantage of the trip and toured China as well as Hong Kong. It was an amazing trip and one I won't ever forget! During the China portion of our trip I ended up buying a lot of tea, at a tea house we visited.When Elaine found out how much I payed for this tea she laughed so hard, apparently I could buy the same stuff here in China town for a fraction of the price I payed! Oh well, it was still great tea! So I thought since she loves tea, a tea pot would be fitting :)


This 3D teapot file comes from the Silhouette online store. I also made this cute little tag with a frame file that comes with the Silhouette Designer Studio Edition. 




Here's me holding it up to show it's scale. 

I placed a few tea bags inside and a note! Hope she enjoys her next coffee break, with some of my tea... Happy Birthday Elaine ;) 

Have a great week!
