I enjoy drinking tea and usually have several types of loose tea on hand. A few months ago, I found some loose tea at Grocery Outlet in a 3 tier tin. I was far more interested in the tin than the contents and the price was right (I think it was around $3.00). The tea was awful as expected, but I have 3 more tins for less than the price I would have paid for one at some of those fancy tea shops. Today, I decided that I wanted to give the tin a face lift, so off to the craft room I went. As I was sorting through my paper, I spotted a 12x12 sheet of Color Me Gold Flourish paper from PaperWishes and knew in an instant what I wanted to do with it. I’ve been seeing a lot of items using the ombre graduated coloring technique and the challenge at PaperWishes this week is to make something with that technique. Next I needed to decide what medium to use and I settled on my metallic cream chalk set. I cut a piece of paper 7.5” x 12” and started coloring. The process took a while, but it’s fun to watch the colors blend together and I really like the end result.
I made the labels using the 6 Layered Labels and 2 Swirls cutting die set from PaperWishes. I cut the large labels from card stock an then cut an acetate cover for each one. I used eyelets to attach the acetate to the card stock. I cut the smaller white labels from card stock and used repositionable adhesive on the backs. That way, I can switch out the labels if I change the tin contents.
