Halloween Tea for Two

Happy Tuesday!

It's template challenge week at JUGS. 3D & Halloween--what could be better?!?!? For this week's project I made a Halloween Tea for Two set.



I used the 'Cup of Cocoa' template (right side bar) from Clear & Simple Stamps. The card stock is The Paper Company Mango Metallic and the patterned paper is Jeepers Creepers/Candy Corn from Heidi Grace Designs. I used JRS Small Letter Set on the 1 3/16 block to stamp the Halloween Tea for Two. I cut two of the candy corns from the patterned paper and the scalloped circle is a SU punch. The bats are an MS punch.



I had a headstone template and measured the depth of the two teabags to create the box. The patterned paper is from a K&Co stack. The stamped cat image on the wrapped tea bags is from a Studio G $1 set and the RIP on the headstone is from a generic alphabet set.



The coffin template is from Jan Tink (left side bar). I printed it on scrap paper at 75% and traced it on the patterned paper (same K&Co stack) so that the skeleton would be lying in the coffin when it is opened. I put two wrapped cookies inside.



Here is the finished set. I added two Halloween napkins when I wrapped it up. The Eek image is from a retired SU tag set.


I will be giving this to my mother for Halloween. I will also take her to Kathleen's Tea Room for lunch. We love going there, especially in the Fall when the fireplace is on.

Thanks for stopping by today.
