Do you LOVE bling? So do we! This month the i {heart} papers design team and the team from Zva Creative are celebrating the love of beautiful bling! Since each of our teams have designers that are also Paper Craft Planet Super Novas, we asked the PCP team to host some special challenges throughout the week.

My project, also for today's PCP 3D challenge, is a tea caddy.  I found the template via Pinterest on Heidi Bak's blog.  I kept the basic scoring and construction in keeping with Heidi's instructions, with some beautiful Teresa Collins designer paper and washi tape...the washi tape was functional as well as decorative!  The picture at the top of my blog shows the pretty tape that decorates the outside...the picture above shows the washi tape that helps hold the flaps of the box lid flat while it also looks beautiful!


Since my Card Positioning Systems project was also due, and the supplies from this project were still cluttering my desk, I made a card that could coordinate with my tea caddy.  It's minus the rich golds of the designer paper, so I'm not sure I'd actually present them together, but still, I really like the way the card turned out! This layout is absolutely perfect for washi tape and Zva Creative!
