Annual tea date

cakebox2.jpgIn January I have an annual tea date with a group of wonderful gals. We go to Lisa’s Tea Treasures, have tea and fancy little sandwiches (without the crust) and of course dessert (yum). We usually walk around afterward, going to our favorite little shops, all the while chatting away.

This year we stopped in Paper Source (yeah). They had these lovely little plain paper boxes with scalloped tops in all different sizes. I think we each ended up purchasing two or three.

I wasn’t sure what how I was going to decorate them so I pulled out some of my scrapbooking paper, some paint and dived in. The tops I covered with paper and added some glitter around the edges; the bottoms I used paint and stamps. I distressed them a bit with brown ink. I thought they came out pretty cute. Happy Birthday to me!
