It's flu and cold season once again this year and what better way to make someone feel better than to give them a box full of tea and chocolate.
I took a cigar box, like the one here:
and transformed it into this:
I mod podged designer paper on all sides, pink and white doilies, and added stamped images and molding paste through a snowflake stencil. I added some distress ink to the paste to make it pink, ribbons, and bakers twine for the banner. I also added some pearls to the snowflakes. The clear knob is from my stash as well as the metal corners.
The Get Better banner is from the Nested Alphabet file. I resized the letters to fit the front of the box and layered them with three different colors of paper.
The bear on the front is from the Frosty Friends file. I added felting powder to the bear paper to add texture.
For the inside of the box, I added a tag with a sentiment from Unity Stamp to cover up the knob's screw and stamped snowflakes all over. I also added a piece of felt to the bottom of the box.
I also made a bear card is from Frosty Friends. I stamped a sentiment from Unity Stamps inside.
I covered the tea bags with tissue paper, added a snowflake, and ribbon through the hole. I did the same for the chocolate bar, yumm!
And so there you have a feel better box full of tea and chocolate for someone under the weather, or make it for yourself; it should make you feel better every time you open a tea bag and boil yourself a cup!
Until next time, keep warm and cozy!
