Club Scrap & Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Garden Shed

Welcome to another
Club Scrap Blog Hop.
Today we present to you projects made with
the September Garden Shed kit.

I hope you came over here from
Jennifer's Blog
and seen her beautiful project.

My project for a teabagholder was inspired by this
painting. It has the colors of the kit, the tea and the apples.

Why the apples?  Well, coming Sunday it is Jewish New Year
(Rosh Hashanah) and one of the symbols on the table is an apple.
We eat a sweet apple with honey and wish each other a very
happy and sweet New Year.

Inside this teabagholder you find pockets for teabags and of
course I added bags of apple tea. 

This teabagholder is easy to make. You need a piece of
cardstof of 7 x 8,5 inch and score it at 4 and 4,5 inch.

For the pockets you need 3 pieces of 4 x 6 1/4 inch of cardstock,
the same as the main paper of the holder. All 3 opieces are scored at 
3,5 inch horizontal and 0,5 inch on both vertical sides. At the 
3,5 line you snip these V-shapes for easy folding.
I used a corner rounder on the longer side and a circle punch
on the shorter side as it makes it easier to add and get the teabag.

Before adding any decoration add a ribbon to the outside of the
holder at 3,5 inch horizontally (middle of the holder).

Now we go to the the decorations. 
You can make these as eleborate as you want. 
The paper for the front of the book is a part  one of the decorated
12x12 inch of scrappapers from the kit. I added more color to the apples 
with color pencil. The apple is a woodsie, that I firstly colored
white with gesso. Next I used a honecomb template, one of the
words from the stencil that was with the kit. The bee is printed from the 
digital Garden Shed kit. The Jewish sentiment is Shana Tova, meaning
a "Good Year". 

The background paper here is a print with apples from
the digital kit . The picture is a fun picture I took
for this project. The beehive is one of the rubber stamps
and symbolizes of course the honey thatis eaten.
The woodsie with Happy New Year is part of the Happy Birthday
stamp and a handwritten New Year.

On the right side you find the 3 pockets which
are decorated with the same paper as on the left side from the 
digital kit. The sentiment here is from an older Club Scrap kit
called Infusion, which is all about tea. The cups are die cut
For decoration I used the little bee stamp from the 
rubber stamps with the Garden Shed kit.

This is the back of the holder...empty. A place to write
some good wishes for the receiver.

Wonderful tea bag holder and I love that you used an apple. It is also a fruit that is ripening at this time of year too! So it not only fits your religion but also goes with the fall theme.
