Cheerio!  Today’s post is centered around a birthday gift of relaxation.  My Bestie from ‘way back when’ had a birthday recently and she happens to be a tea fanatic.  She also is a bit frazzled with work.  So her gift was a no-brainer!  Tea, a relaxing candle & card.  🙂

The Tea House was so fun to make.  I used Cricut Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge, which cuts all sorts of fun boxes to hold treats and surprises.  I cut the small sweet shop box and filled it with a variety of tea bags.

The top has a cutout heart, highlighted with a twine outline.  Alas, the picture was too blurry to post.

Finally I need to add a card so I can tell her how much her friendship means to me.
