April Blog Hop - Timeless Template Creation

That's right, it is Papertrey Ink Blog Hop time again!! This time, Nichole asked us to create a project using one of the Timeless Templates, that are created by Lauren Meader.
Well, I haven't purchased one yet, but there are a few free templates on the PTI site that you can check out HERE. I decided to go with the Recipe Wrap Up!
But, you certainly don't have to use it for recipes....the possibilities are endless. I decided to cut mine down and make it a speciality tea holder since my mom loves tea. I thought I might include it in her Mother's day present.
I printed the template onto the cardstock, cut it out, and folded it. Then, I added the tulip stamping onto the cardstock. I then decorated the front, added the decorated pockets, and finally inserted the tea packets.
I wanted to stamp "enjoy" and was excited to find this lovely one in an old but wonderful set, Spiral Bouquet. I have not used this set enough and must pull it out more!! I'm trying to get my mom to try some different tea's because I think she might like them, if she gave them a try!! I have another 'tea' project I'm going to make for her as well, so stay tuned.
Okay, now I'm off to see what all the other bloggers were up to with Lauren's templates! Enjoy!! Supplies: Stamps-Wishing You, Spiral Bouquet, Beyond Basics Border (all Papertrey Ink); Cardstock - Select White, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avacado (Papertrey Ink), Chocolate chip, Close to Cocoa (Stampin; Up!); Other - Raspberry Fizz satin ribbon (Papertrey Ink), oval scallop die (Spellbinders).
Thanks for dropping in for a visit!! Donelda
