Marks Paper Company : The 12 Creative Days of Christmas + Tea Booklet w/Tutorial

11.16.2009


Getting ready for the holidays is going to be extra special and a bit more fun this year with The 12 Creative Days of Christmas going on over at the MPCo. blog! Stop on over here to read and learn more (updates will be every Sunday and Wednesday)!

Here is a fun project that I created recently for Marks Paper Company using the Old Fashioned Courtship Collection of papers. The idea is that the book is a tea booklet and you can adhere little tea packets to each solid cardstock piece within the book (you could always change this up and simply add photos in place of the tea packets). I was thinking that this would make a great teacher gift for the holdays with a nice handmade mug to go along with the tea.

Decorative Fold-Out Mini-Book

Supplies needed for this project: 2 sheets of color coordinated cardstock, 1 sheet of Marks Paper Company patterned papers (Old Fashioned Courtship Collection), Corner rounder, Ink + stamps (Hero Arts), Embellishments, Ruler, Paper trimmer, Scoring blade, Craft knife

Project tutorial can be downloaded for free here.
