My Friend Karla accused me of singing the little teapot song when I was creating last weeks teacup project here. I think there was a little humming going on for sure when I re-created this little teapot card by Michelle Reynolds. I first saw her card on pinterest and knew it was a "must duplicate" for my M.E.'s 3C's class that I hold every other Friday in my kitchen. (M.E.=Mary Ellen and 3C's=Coffee, Cookies and Cards)
Isn't it adorable?! I love how she took this die and thought outside the box. I just love the fun creativity. I put together a short picture tutorial on how you can re-create this pocket card too.
Start with a piece of paper that is 5" x 10" and fold it in half. I put a piece of Blue painters tape on my Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die #127005 so you could see exactly where to place the folded side of the paper. You may have to trim the paper on the corner so it will fit in your Big Shot. Cut as shown.
Trim one side of the bigz die as shown right before the "shoulder" of the die. Save that piece it will make the spout.
Using your 1/2" circle punch #119869 punch a partial circle out of one side of the image as shown.
Next you need to punch out a piece of paper with the Large Oval Punch #119855 and discard the punched piece. Then line up the Extra-Large Oval Punch #119859 over the punched out image and punch to make the handle for your tea pot.
Open up your card and glue down the pieces as shown. Use your Medium Envelope as a guide because you want to make sure it will fit in the envelope when you have it all done. :) Then you have the choice of either putting a bead of multipurpose liquid glue along the edge and turning this into a pocket where you can add a tag or teabag to, or you can cover your handle and spout pieces with a layer of whisper white paper to make it a card that opens up where you can add a personalized message.
I decided to add a 2" tag to mine punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch #133324
I hope you enjoy recreating this little cutie as much as I did. If you click on each link it will take you to my store for more information on each product.
