Party Challenge ~ Crafty Secrets

Edit - I've been asked about the feet on the tea box, I forgot to add the link on where to buy them. I've highlighted it below in the supply section, so sorry!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's the Crafty Secrets design team challenge again.
This month we have a party theme and I decided to do a Tea/Cupcake party.

I altered a tea box, teabag tags and made some teacup cupcake pics and postcard invitation.

This is the wooden tea box I started with.

Here it is finished. I covered the box with CS Wonderland Creative Scraps, stamped and cut out the banner and attached it.

Here the box is open with the tea bags inside and the tags I made with the cute tickets that are on the scraps.
The handle is a silver plated spoon that I glued to the top with E6000. I made the tea stained flower out of 2 paper doilies.

I covered the bowl of the spoon with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on glitter to make it look like sugar.

I cut the teacups out of the Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps, glued toothpicks on the back and stuck them in the mini cupcakes.

I cut out the menu and attached it to the postcard with a foam dot.

Supplies: Stamps - CS Artsy Banner. Paper - CS Pastel Paper Pad. Ink - Ranger Distress Antique Linen. Acces. - CS Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps, silver feet by Provo Craft (retired, you can get feet here), silver plated spoon (flea market), wooden tea box (flea market), Martha Crystal Course Glitter, tea bags, Ranger Snow Cap Paint Dabber, toothpicks, vintage buttons, tea dye, Tim Holtz Ornate Plates, Making Memories sentiment tile, seam binding, May Arts ribbon, paper doilies. Tools - Wonder Tape, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, Glossy Accents.
