FM136 Tea Bag Dispenser

This week on The Friday Mashup the two challenges were:
"Create a project with Baked Brown Sugar, Always Artichoke & Crushed Curry"
"Create a 3-D Project"
or mash it up and do both.

I couldn't participate in both challenges because I didn't have the specific colors needed. 

I have been wanting  to create a Tea Bag Dispenser for a long time but never got around to it. My fellow design team member at Friday Mashup, Heidi Baks, created a fantastic tutorial over on Spiltcoaststampers which made this project super easy to re-create. 

To create the flower there are four layers of each of the punches I listed below. Poke a hole in the centre of each punched out shape. Wet your flowers a little with the spritzer and then scrunch. Put the brad through the centre and you have your flower!

Stampset: Yippee-Skippee!
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Grey, Pool Party, So Saffron, I Am Me Designer Series Paper
Ink: Pool Party, So Saffron, Basic Grey, Real Red
Punches: Blossom, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle, 1-1/4" Scallop Circle
Tools: Spritzer
Accessories: Antique Brads, Basic Grey Cordurory Buttons (retired), Pool Party Bakers Twine (retired), Retired Grosgrain ribbon, retired sale-a-bration ribbon.
