Teapot Card and Gift Box...

Hello, heya, howdy, hi!  
I have a picture heavy post for you today, but I hope you are inspired by this project and hop over to 
Top Tip Tuesday for an amazing tutorial by our very own Deneen, where she gives you the template and directions to make this very teapot!
I had an absolute blast making this gift set for our current challenge which is
Make Something For Mother's Day
 or Craft Buddy 
Here is the teapot with the lid lifted where you can see a white piece of paper is attached for a space to journal on.  This slides right inside the teapot.
One of our sponsors for this challenge is Karen's Doodles and we were able to use some wonderful images.  This little lady is called Relax.
I have added her to the inside of the teapot card and stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up! Friendly Phrases.
The Pansies, purple rose and black and white tiny rose are all handmade.  I've never made pansies before, but I am beyond pleased with the way they turned out.  The large green leaves are also handmade out of white cloth handkerchiefs.  I do plan on making a tutorial for the Pansies and the leaves in the very near future if anyone is interested in seeing how easy they are to make.
I'm also going to be making a tutorial for this origami gift box as well.  So look for those coming up in the near future.  
Here is the gift box opened up and it's the perfect size for a jewelry box to fit inside!  There's no gift in here yet, but there will be!
Teapot card and gift box together again.

I do hope that this has enticed your creative mojo and you'll join us over at the ever fun and creative
for our challenge.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors who will be providing the winners with amazing prizes!

Okay, I've bored you long enough, so I'll let you go now.
Thank you so much for stopping in and as always,
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
