Happy New Year! We are still enjoying some wonderful down time and will be until Monday. I wanted to show you something I made for my mom using the new January Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit. I'm sure you've seen the tea bag dispenser floating around. I loved the idea, but I don't own any 12 x 12 paper, so I had to make an alternative.
This month's kit comes with a couple of pieces of cardstock that just so happen to measure 8 1//2 x 11 1/2, which is perfect for the dispenser I made and the tea bags that I happen to have. . .coincidnece? I think not! As you can see below, I adjusted my scorings by just a smidge; scoring at 3", 5 1/2", 8 1/2", and 11". When It's all folded up, it makes the perfect dispenser for my bagged Lipton teas :D
This lid size will have to be adjusted as well to measure 4 5/8" x 4 1/8", and then scored at 3/4" on each side. This little dispenser was so fun to make, and the papers from the kit just went so beautifully with my CreativiTEA set from Taylored Expressions.
