Time for Tea: January Taylored Expressions KI Kit

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.

 Stamps:  CreativiTEA
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  January 2014 TE KI Kit
Accessories:  ribbon from kit, Nestabilities Labels 7 die, Scorpal, foam tape, Copics, glossy glaze

If you haven't heard of the kits that Taylor offers, just take a look at what you get:

They are such a bang for your buck and full of 'matchy' 'stampy' goodness. . .all of my favorite things!  Check out the Kits page to see the benefits and options, and check out the Gallery page for lots of inspiraiton!


  1. Cassie, this is so cute! I have that stamp set, too! It was the very first one I ever ordered from TE. Cool! What a great idea. I do have lots of 12x12 paper so I'll be checking out those dimensions, too. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year (can't wait to get my kit!!)

  2. What a fabulous project Cassie. The papers look awesome and the image is just perfect with the theme.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I always appreciate your sweet words :)
