Tea Time

I designed this mini 'box' while trying to figure out how to make a gift of some tea for my friend, Rebecca.
Using a 12x12" piece of card stock, cut away 4 1/2" squares from the corners. Score edges of remaining center 3" square, so you now have four side flaps. Two opposite facing flaps need to be scored from outside corners to meet at center of top, forming a triangle. Punch holes & set eyelets (if desired to make tie stronger) at top corners of scored side flaps. Run ribbon through holes on each side & pull closed with front & back flaps tucked inside.
For this one, I punched a 2 1/2" circle out of the back flap to make a window. If you like the window but want to fill with something loose, adhere a piece of clear plastic like a transparency sheet to inside of flap. You can do this for front & back sides. I used a 'Mega' 3D-Dot by EK Success (1/2" thick) to attach the monogram so I could stick the mini heart pins into the foam behind the scalloped circle. These make CUTE party favors, invitations, or just a little 'thinking of you' gift. Enjoy! -Shannon
