If you want to see my projects for the last few years, I will link them here: 2020, 2019. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

My father-in-law loves tea and I truly miss spending time with him. We live in different countries and due to Covid I haven’t had the chance to see him for almost 2 years now. Crazily long time. I was thinking of him and our tea-time discussions when the idea of a Tea Treat hit me. It is a small package which has everything for an indulging moment of peace and pleasure: a small box of tea, a little jar of honey, some crackers to go with the tea, a card to hold the loving message and all wrapped up in a pretty mug. Let me show you how I made these. For all pieces I used the Echo park Coffee and Friends paper pad and a couple of stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook Designs.

TEA BOX

We have these big matchboxes here in Hungary and I just deassamled the cover of one and used it as a template to create my own: I traced it on white cardstock, creased according to the template and adhered it together. I adorned it with coloured cardstock and patterned paper. I stamped a few sentiments on the matchbox sides from the Heartfelt Love stamp set.

The cute kitty is from Newton’s Mug, coloured with Copics, die cut out and popped up on the top of the box. I stamped an extra sentiment on a stitched banner from Banner Trio and another one in a small stitched heart from Heart Frames.

This little box can holf 4 tea bags, so perfect for a family tea time even! Isn’t it cute?

CRACKER BAG

When I drink tea I prefer to have something salty with it, but you can easily add little biscuits too instead of the crackers. I simply put some little pretzels in a clear bag and created a topper for it: I die cut a stitched circle with Circle Frames from patterned paper and backed it with a slightly bigger dark green circle (I used a circle die from Pink and Main here, but many companies make nesting circle dies which match).

I added the same sentiment on a stitched banner and also the little heart with the Purr-tea line, I just love it!

CARD

Of course there is no treat bag without a handmade card to hold your message. I kept it simple here: the kitty from Newton’s Mug on a woodgrain circle backed with a slightly bigger green one. For the background I used the same patterned paper to match the other elements. I had the same 2 sentiments as before, it really makes it part of a package. So neat!

TAG

As the mug is also part of the gift I created a little tag too which resembles a tea bag itself: I used the Tag Times 2 die set to cut the base from dark green cardstock and added patterned paper in the middle. I die cut the circle tag from peach cardstock and adhered the stitched heart with the sentiment on it. I used a chunky green twine to hold these together.

Sweet Treats Blog Hop with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to share with you my projects for the 6th annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop organised by the awesome Newton’s Nook Designs. As Valentine’s Day is so close, I brought you a couple of ideas how to wrap chocolate in a cute way. Let’s dive in! But make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

For all my project I used the Tides of love stamp set and coordinating dies and the Bokeh hearts stencil from the latest release.

Chocolate bar wrap

My daughter loves to get some small chocolate bars in her lunch box on special days. The idea here is to create your own wrap for a small bar with a cute critter and a fun sentiment.

I used coloured copy paper for these. The dark brown measures 2,75×4,5 inches and I used the Scalloped rectangle die to decorate the edge of it. Then I added a pink strip which I stencilled with the Bokeh hearts stencil and pink Distress Oxide inks. This one measures 2,5*4,5 inches. I wrapped it around and embellished it with critters from Tides of Love.

The sentiments I stamped in small Speech bubbles.

Lollipop banner

I don’t like candies but once in a while I allow my son to have one. Wouldn’t it be cute to give away a couple of these for Valentine’s Day as a class treat?

So easy to make: I created banners from dark brown cardstock with the help of a banner die from Frames and Flags, added a heat embossed sentiment and adhered a cute die cut fish.

Of course I had to embellish those with glossy accents.

Choco bag

Perfect for smaller chocolate kisses. I arranged them in aplastic bag and created a topper using a Scalloped rectangle die.

I used the same stencil to add colour to the pink part, adhered the Copic coloured whale and simply stamped the setiment in brown.

Chocolate fingers holder

This one was the most complicated out of today’s projects. I used the rounded stitched rectangle from Frames and flags as the base, and heat embossed the sentiment on the top of it.

Then I added a wrap to it which holds the choco bars in place using a stitched scallop rectangle die and the layering hearts stencil again. That cute octopus is the perfect match for it, don’t you think?

Sweet Treats Blog Hop with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day! I am thrilled to be part of the the 5th annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop, it is such a fun event! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

What is best on the Day of Love than a nicely prepared breakfast for our other half? I love to pamper my husband with a treat like this. My project today consists of a little love note, a tag, a funny donuts topper and a little chocolate box.

I started with colouring a bunch of images from Newton’s Sweetheart, Love bites and Love and Chocolate sets. I used Copic markers and then cut each image out with their coordinating dies.

For the love note i die cut the postage edge rectangle from the Frameworks die set from white cardstock. I added a strip of gingham patterned paper (Sunny Studio) and a thin strip of green glitter cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love and Chocolate set in black and adhered a die cut Love above it from the Darling hearts die set. The cute kitty couple i popped up with 3D foam squares.

For the tag i die cut a stitched white tag (Lawn Fawn), added a bit of gingham paper to the bottom, stamped the sentiment on the top and mounted the milk drinking kitties with 3D foam squares. I attached it to a pink gingham ribbon with white twine, i love how it matched the milk bottle!

The donut topper i created with a banner die from the Frames and flags die set, folded it in half and added a mini gingham fishtail in between the layers. I attached it to a toothpick, stamped a sentiment from the Love bites stamp set and embellished it with two little donuts. Isn’t it the cutest?

And finally the chocolate box i created with a Lawn Fawn die from aqua shimmer cardstock, added vellum to the window and stamped the sentiment from the Love and Chocolate set using Staz-on Black ink. I coloured the hearts from the back of the vellum using a pink Copic marker and embellished the little box with the die cut bonbons. I put our favourite Milka bits in, yummy!
