Some more UPCYCLED TEA BOXES

UPCYCLED EMPTY TEA BOXES
{Wedding and Easter}

Trust all my bloggy friends are keeping well and enjoying the month of March.  Yes, where is the year going too - all the more reason to make the most of every day that is gifted to us.  I have recently been busy with a few commissions for upcycled empty tea boxes.  They are time consuming, but so rewarding.  Thank you to my loyal and faithful clients that keep on placing orders for these and for those awesome friends who goes to the extra effort of collecting the empty boxes for me.

So up first is Easter themed treat boxes for the kiddies.  The bunny house image is a pre-coloured image from DigiStamps4Joy and can be purchased here.  The sentiment has been sourced from the Internet.

Next up are some Easter boxes for grown ups.  The beautiful Word Art is from the very talented and special lady, Paulette from Create with TLC and can be purchased here.
Happy Easter Many Ways Digi Image and Word Art Set





Then lastly, a commission for an upcycled Wedding tea box.  The colour scheme of the wedding is purple.  The gorgeous word art on this is also from Paulette from Create with TLC .
