Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration-Coffee, Tea, or Me?

Lemon Tea Set Package Contents
Welcome to Ribbon Inspiration Saturday, Coffee, Tea, or Me? Stamp Simply Style! For my creation today, I chose Tea!  I picked up this adorable tea bag holder a while ago and wanted to assemble some kind of gift with it.  So along the way, I bought Lemon Green Tea, and Lemonhead Candies!  Did you know if you drop a couple of the candies into your hot tea, they melt and give you a wonderful lemon flavor? Who knew? The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store now has a coffee/tea category in the store! Check it out HERE!

Packaged Lemon Tea Set
My first step after gathering contents, was to decide what container to use. A "go to" for me are crystal clear boxes, they are not only great for cards, but other goodies too! The A6 size I used is found HERE. The Lemonhead candies were placed inside of a mini crystal clear pillow container. Perfect! and they are found HERE. I cut my blue card stock to fit the box after I stamped it with VersaMark watermark inked images. Items are held onto the card stock base with Scor Tape before placing inside A6 clear box. With the extra stamped card stock, I created a filler that also helps hold the contents in place. I also used the same cup, tea bag, and steam stamps to create the package tag. Stamps are from Verve's Sip and Savor Clear Stamp Set found HERE. The tag image is colored with Copic Markers. White web ribbon is found HERE and the fantastic Seam Binding is HERE. I also placed a Webster's Pages Mini Sunday Picnic princess petal with the bow embellishment found HERE

I collect tea items (pots, cups, etc.) and have several vintage tea bag holders. I don't find that people use them often so when I put them out for tea I get plenty of compliments. What a great gift ensemble, I love how you assembled it all inside the clear box. And the tip about the lemonheads, good to know! I may be raiding the kids' candy stash tonight - LOL!
