G45 Botanical Tea Book Box

Good Morning!

I hope your February has been off to a better start than mine. It's been a tad stressful and just recently, quite sad. It was a real day brightener to see one of my creations on the Graphic 45 blog today, along with a video with Charee sharing my project. The theme today on the blog is our new Staples, and my project below happens to use 5 different kinds: the new ATC-sized book box, washi tape, shabby chic door pulls, shabby chic brads, and shabby chic keys. If you hop on by the blog, you can also see an adorable project Denise Hahn made using another new staple, the ivory ATC tags.

I used Graphic 45's beautiful Botanical Tea line to decorate this box, so naturally a tea theme was in store! I made each of the included ATC tags into little teabags. The edges were covered with G45's new washi tape - an idea Charee shared with me a while ago! ;)

And here's the video of Charee from Graphic 45, showing off the new Graphic 45 Staples and my Botanical Tea book box!

I pinned your beautiful box, too. I think I may need to just make a Maria Cole board. :) I love these new boxes, and you've done a fabulous job with it, as always. Beautiful collection, not to mention those fab new keys.
