The tea is on me!!!

Morning Peeps!! 

I have a super exciting sneaky peeky at a couple of the new releases coming to Funky Hand soon!! My gorgeous Funkette buddies and I have been busy creating some gorgeous makes for you all and Da Boss said I could share one of mine with you all today!!

So the fabulous mug is called 'The tea is on me' and is one of 4 gorgeous little digi stamp mugs that our Anice has designed herself and I love them! and the papers are from the new ' I love you sew' paper download (squeee! so excited about these papers because they are gorgeous!! just wait and see what the funkettes have been doing with them!)

I decided to make a simple little tea bag gift card because it just seemed like such a fun thing to make!! I like a bit of novelty!!

How did I make the card???!
1. cut an A4 piece of white card in half longways and then score it at 5 4/8" and 10 7/8". That sounds so confusing doesn't it!!! so lets take a peeky at how I did that...yup you guessed it! trusty score pal!!....
move your cardstock over to the left so that it is level with the 1/8 increment on the top of your scorpal (that's the first little line along the top in Lou language!!)

2. Score at 5 1/2" and 11 1/2". This will give you a little lip to turn over to close the card.

3. Punch 2 holes in the top for threading your twine (squeeee! yes Bakers Twine is available at Funky Hand!!!) through.

4. cut your design papers and decorate away!! I made a pocket for the teabag inside and attached a little punched heart with twine to the teabag by sewing it through. On the front I matted up the design papers, added a punched border and then my gorgeous mug of tea!

I love these mugs, they are so cute and the sentiments on them are great!

OOOOOh and while I remember, don't forget to share your Funky Hand makes with us!! You can share them over on the Get Funky and Craft blog using our linky tool or over on our Funky Hand Facebook page.

So its just me,Mo and Poppy this morning as our breakfast buddy is not coming today so we have had a lazy morning so far! We treated ourselves to spaghetti hoops on toast for breakfast and Mo is still in his pj's and vegging out a bit. Then today I have a squidge of ironing to do and some cards to get made so its going to be a lovely day I think.

Thank you for popping in on me, have an awesome day!
Huge hugs Lou xxx
