PCS High Tea Blog Hop

*NOTE – High Tea blog hop officially starts March 28th so if you’re here a little early, be sure to come back and see all of the projects the PCS design team has created for you.


Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler “High Tea” blog hop featuring our 3D teapot template from the March issue of the Paper Crafters Sampler entitled, “Orange Blossom Tearoom”.

With the current trend of tea images in the paper crafting world, it only seemed appropriate to offer a tea-related template, and that is our newest “High Tea” 3D, teapot.

Now-a-days, teapot come in so many sizes and shapes, it was easy to select one for my inspiration. What did you think of what I’ve created ?

I took my inspiration from pictures of Vintage French Enamelware Coffee Pots - I think they look more like modern day tea pots ;)  Here is my inspiration photo:



I did a fun little technique to get mine spotty and shiney :)  I first cut out the template and then went to town.  This template was very easy to put together and super fun!!  Here are some shots of it:



The lid even comes OFF!!!  And there is an opening in the spout to pour treats out of!




I had SO much fun embellishing this beauty!  Here is a close up of the flowers and hopefully a better picture of the finish of the tea pot :


There sure are some AWESOME tea pots on this tour - make sure to make your complete round through the tour.  If you started here, you can make the full round and end up here.

Make sure you visit all the design team members' blogs for fabulous ideas! As a "thank you", each design team member will randomly pick a winner to receive the Orange Blossom Tearoom issue for FREE!
