Tea Table Favor…

Wouldn’t it be fun this spring to hold a tea or spring luncheon with some of your besties…maybe outdoors?  Maybe make it really girly and dress up the table with these sweet little butterfly boxes holding treats for each guest or use them as place cards…or both!

Sweet, right?  Here’s a view from the top…

You could always write names on the tag and use on the table at each place setting.  I absolutely love to decorate a table for a small gathering.  Here’s an example of a little girls’ tea party birthday for Lyla (one of “the littles”) when she was six…

Here I used the manikin form with tutu as the place card, little purses with treats inside and a faux cake and candle for each place setting.  Worked perfectly with great grandmothers handmade lace table cover and tiny tea sets.  So fun…

So back to our pretty butterfly box…can you imagine these as shower (wedding/baby) treats?  Or even with bird seed or a small gift inside at a wedding table?

Let’s see how easy these are to mass produce with these Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Vellum and color of your choice or event cardstock
  • Ink:  Dots color of your choice to coordinate with event and Basic Black
  • Stamps:  the “for you” sentiment comes from Birthday Blooms
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Basic Pearls, Labels Framelits, Butterfly Thinlets, Curvy Keepsake Thinlet and Elegant Butterfly Punch, Window Sheet, dauber, Itty Bitty Flower Punch

Digits

  • Cut two curvy box sides from Thick Whisper White.  Place dots with dauber in your choice of color on the outside of each box side.  Cut window with framelet on one box side.  Glue bases together with glue.  Glue window sheet on inside of side with framelit cut out.  Safe piece cut from window for label.
  • Cut three of the larger butterflies…one from your color choice of cardstock and one from a DSP and one from Vellum cardstock.  Punch one of the smaller butterflies from the Vellum.  Cut all butterflies in half.  Start gluing to one side of handle opening with cardstock, Vellum, DSP and last the smallest butterfly.  Repeat on other side of handle opening.  Pull the handle through to close the box.  Oh!  so cute!
  • Now punch your sweet little flowers with a pearl in center.  Stamp or write a name on your tag.  Punch a hole and tie on handles with Linen Thread.  Add the three little flowers with glue dots.

Done!  Really simple, right?  The hardest part is getting all the pieces cut.  A little assembly line action and you and your “besties” can knock these out in no time…

Thanks so much from dropping by today.  Hope your week has gotten off to a grand start…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

  1. I laughed out loud when I saw your “b-ism” today. That is exactly how the weather has been here. We had snow flurries yesterday. It was the good kind of snow – no shoveling needed. Now to your beautiful butterfly box, it is so sweet, especially for a tea or any gathering of girlfriends. The table for Lyla’s party is perfect. I’m sure it’s a great memory for both of you. It sunny here but cold and windy today. I think on Wednesday it will be in the upper 60’s, so spring will be here once again. Have a great day!

    • Hahaha…our weather here was warmer before spring arrived.m actually think this will be our last freezing morning. Ive got plants that need to be outside…
      Thanks for your sweet comments on the butterfly box…it’s so pretty in person!…B!

  2. Loved that box, We have a tea party once a month and I’ll be making them for next month! Thanks, Billie.
