Tea for Two Explosion Box – by Deb Felts

(Specials running through 1/1/18 listed near bottom of post)

Today we are sharing a super fun project! It’s an explosion box created by Deb that contains pockets for 2 bags of tea. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s get right to the pictures.

Is this spectacular, or what! Totally {{{LOVE}}} this project.

What a super fun gift to give.

Here’s a clearer look at the box top.

Being an explosion box, the top holds it all together.

Here is the box front. What a lovely cup and tag.

Our NEW Coffee or Tea? stamp and die sets were used to create this project.

And this is the explosion box opened.

You can see the two pockets for the tea bags.

Here are Deb’s quick instructions:

Years ago when I first started stamping, these “explosion boxes” were all the rage. This one is modified to hold two tea bags. It started with a 9 x 9 inch square of white cardstock, scored tic-tac-toe style at 3 and 6 inches, then trimmed to create the box sides and flaps to hold the tea bags.

You can find Deb’s full post on her blog here.
