Tea Party Pocket Letter

Hello my friends!
Today I am starting "Tea Party" serious of projects that created for a special person (the package is on its way to her, so as of right now she is incognito)..
This is very simple and  well known by now on YT project of Pocket Letter...
There are so many ways to create those and decorate...
Mine is Tea Party related, I used DCWV Tea Part paper by Craft Smith paper pad and Coupon holders from Dollar Tree.

 for the charms/ dangle decor on the side I used: "A Tree for Me" Christmas decoration from Hobby Lobby, some thrifty find of shell bracelet, handmade bead charm and decorated pre used tea bag.

 Altered paper clip, decorated with handmade paper bow using We R Memories Keepers punch board.
 Printed out images of tea party, cups , ect will make great anthemera for the recipient, which can be used in any craft project.

 I used quote notes from paper collection to add encouraging/ loving messages to this project....
 "You are my cup of tea" paper page was trimmed to a size of two rows of Pocket Letter & split in the middle for an easier band.

 Creating a shaker box in unused space with sequence , beads and metal filigree created double sided window in your PL + it is a moving (forever alive) substance, that makes your project more interesting. I used fuse tool to seal that pocket and ran a decorative washi tape across, to cover any imperfections.
 To add more 3D effect to this project I used tiny applique and a metal spoon placed right above the tea cup image. Now it looks like I have napkin and tea spoon laying right next to the cup.. Very realistic tea party set up.... Makes you want to have that cup of tea, right?
 A cup out of word "friends" brings special meaning to this project, which is really self explanatory.. But adding snippet of lace and securing it with altered paper clip - makes the word sing and fill how special recipient is.
 Lets flip this PL on another side.....
 That handmade paper bow has covered back - it makes big difference in a look ans in a sturdiness of this element... I used couple Life Project cards to tack into this pocket: those are functional and easily can be used in any other project. Handmade tag with couple rows of laces makes this pocket....
 The see through shaker box covers well the back side of this PL as well and by adding some Rhinestone bling finishes this whole ansamble.
 Each paper pad has a border page (it is almost looks like a small sample of the whole collection) and look how beautiful it looks as a background for the pocket. By adding more cut outs and tea party related images finished fullness of this Pocket Letter.

Hope you enjoyed this project and got inspired.
Have a great day!
XO-XO-XO, Natasha
