"Totally" Mad For Tea

Happy "almost" New Year!!!!
 
 
This morning "early" I happened to see a very fun challenge at Simon Says
to create something for a "mad tea party"
sounds like fun??? I think so....
 
 
for my "tea party"...I made a tea box......it stores lots and lots of tea packets....
I had some Graphic 45 Halloween Alice In wonderland paper
and made it work for me....
 
 
 
I colored in the mad hatters hat and covered the Halloween piece with some hearts...
creative...eh???
 
 
The box lid fits down inside the box, so to keep it from slipping inside
and to make a "handle" of sorts, I made a mad hatters hat.....
it took me a few hours to complete, but was well worth it......
here is the challenge at Simon Says if you want to join in!!!!
 
The cardstock I used was Stampin Up and the DS paper is My Minds Eye 
the box top and bottom is a Spellbinders die
