Tea Chest

A cup of tea anyone?

I purchased box of drawers in a sale at Papermaze a few months ago and have just got around to making it into a tea chest to store all the different teas I have acquired.

The papers I selected had a tea theme, but they are also floral so will go well on my dresser with my china. The papers are from Graphic 45 'Botanical Tea Collection'.

Each drawer was covered with a different piece of patterned paper. Thin I did some fussy cutting to add more detail to each drawer and inked all the edges.

The top was treated with several pieces to make a collage as it was slightly longer than 12". Again I added cut out details.

Both ends were treated in the same was with the same sheet of paper.

The was the back is arranged made it a perfect size for a sheet of 12" paper from side to side, I only had to trim the bottom of the page off. 

I added the Kaisercraft metal label pulls in brass. with tiny labels I printed myself on the computer. there is a selection of templates for this in the pack with the pulls. These can easily be changed if I decide to use the box to store something else.

The box itself was painted with acrylic paint, then distressed with inks.
Pleased with the finished result and the box is stocked up and ready to use. My grocery cupboard is now much tidier too!

Thanks for looking
