A couple Tea Boxes and a card

I'm back again! I've been away from crafting for a couple days of being sick with the flu and actually stayed home from work for the rest of the week. I was in no mood for crafting even if I wanted to. Anyway, I was hoping to get better by today because I want to go to the Made in Hawaii Expo today and do a little shopping here and there.

Anyway I made a couple of tea boxes last night and was experimenting on the size and how I should make the boxes. I thought it turned out cute especially after I put the images on them. The sides of the boxes measures 3" in depth, the front and back are 2-1/2" wide and the height is 4" tall. On the pink box I used my curved rectangle nestabilites for the opening and it fit perfect! The brown box I cut the opening with the exacto and it's okay but I really like the pink box opening. All in all I like them both anyway.

I also made this card for Jayne who is my partner for the August RAK for PCP. The challenge for the month is to make a card using black and white and another color. It was tough for me and I know that I have silver, gray, white, black and pink but it looks black and white to me! hee hee!! I tried the "out of frame technique" and it was challenging for me because I somehow chopped her toes off with the scissors. I guess I need to keep practicing more on it. Anyway I hope she likes this card!

WOW! I tried to come up with a tea box too, but, failed. I just ended up drinking the tea!! LOL! Love the colors of the boxes & the touch of the flower in the hair.
Also, like the B&W card. Glad that you're feeling better.
