MAKING A BIRTHDAY TEA BOX!!

Last week-end my boyfriend and I were invited to a fancy dress party with an Alice in Wonderland theme! We were so excited and made our costumes ourselves (pictures will be up soon!! Or you can follow me on instagram to see them!! http://instagram.com/oliviajohnson94?ref=badge ). We also made our friend a tea box for her birthday. It took a while, but we were so excited, we bot it done after several different hinges and trips to Hobbycraft, Homebase and B&Q! I decided to use decoupage to decorate the box and chose this cute blue and green floral print that I got from Hobbycraft. We used very thin balsa wood in the box to create the sections where the teabags would be held. It took a while to get the box spot on but in the end it looked fantastic and our friend loved it!!
