Tea 'A hug in a cup' home decor project

 Good Morning everyone and welcome to April.  

So today im sharing the present i made for my mum for mother's day, I made this first and then used the same papers for the matching card.  MDF teapot and cups.  Combining mums love of flowers and tea.  

This first photo shows it hanging up, i connected them all using jewellery chain, its always nicer to drink tea with a friend so you have to have two cups ready.  

The teapot.  First i covered them all with patterned papers from a 12x12 pad, i then edged them all in gold paint, to give the effect of those bone china sets you get with gold rims. And of course tea has to be in bone china😊.  

I made the roses using my old favourite spellbinders spiral flower dies, this flowers are ideal for long term projects as once made up they are very study and take some battering, using a mix of papers, die cut rose leaves too, these i spray varnished with a gloss. Tea bag tag sourced from the internet, pearl clusters and metal charms to embellish and add interest. 

Close up showing the flowers better and the little teapot, chair and key charms.  This shows the colours better too.

Spellbinders bitty blossom dies
Papers all from B&M 'springtime bouquet' paper pad
Imagination crafts starlight paint 'gold'
MDF Teapot & cups from ebay
Distress ink 'picked raspberry' & 'Clover'
