This a great starting point. My head was spinning with ideas. First thing that came to my mind was pull out all my flower dies and there's quite a few of them. I spent a couple happy hours (remember, I'm easily amused) making flowers. It's amazing how time flies when you're doing stuff you like.
At some point I remembered the teapot template that was on the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge blog. I had printed out the tutorial hoping to use it, and this seemed like the perfect time.
The lid comes off, just like a real teapot, to reveal an image, or sentiment or with a little playing around you could attach a gift card there.
Once I got the card assembled I decided to use only one of the flowers I made, the yellow one. It was made with two different dies. The daisy die was used for the outer petals and the inside was made with the smallest rolled rose.
I wanted you to see that the lid pulls up and out. Isn't that clever! I do love this idea and it's very easy to make so if you love shaped cards and/or teapots stop over at Top Tip for the template and tutorial.
The lid piece comes all the way out. I stamped the sentiment on this piece before I made the teapot. At this point in time I had no idea I was going to use the ticket die and stamp which has a sentiment. I hadn't thiought about how I was going to decorate the teapot and as I went trhough stamps and embellishments I came across the ticket and die set and decided to try that one out. Maybe I'll replace the stamped sentiment on the lid piece with a blank piece of cardstock so that I can write a note, and maybe not. It's good to have options.
