This week, our host for the 31st challenge in the Tea Room is Nicole, and she has chosen this pretty, seasonal picture for us to be inspired by and asked that we include a pumpkin in our designs ...
... and here is the sweet little gift set I created:
I used one of the new templates from My Time Made Easy called 'Pinch Me' and created a little pumpkin. I filled the inside of the box with (4) tea bags and then tied it all together with some Old Olive striped grosgrain wide ribbon. The trinket pin was made by my bloggity friend, June!
I made a tag to hang off the bow and then created a spiral paper flower with some bling in the middle! These would be equally as cute moving forward for the Christmas holidays ... done in festive holiday colors - or to match your table setting and filled with bite-sized holiday tea cookies, homemade candy or peppermint tea!
I made a matching place card that I can write the names of my guests on and put each little gift set at their individual place settings at our holiday table! The pumpkin is made from a large oval punch, stem is a sprig of pinestraw from my yard and the leaves were hand cut from Darling Dots 2 patterned paper from My Time Made Easy! Instead of a pumpkin, for the Christmas holidays you could make a miniature Christmas tree with rhinestones for ornaments!
Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is My Favorite Things ... one of my favorite stamp companies! I used the Die-Namics Spiral Flower die to make the paper flower on the tag :)
