Teapot gift box





Isn't this the cutest "box"???? It's completely made of cardstock!  I bought the file from My Time Made Easy.  I hate to buy files, but I wanted this for a friend and I simply didn't have the time to figure this one out. It will hold a ton of tea bags, although this one is filled with chocolate :0)  It was a little tricky to put together with all of the curves, but it went pretty well for the first one.  I used hot glue which was probably not the best choice.  I'm going to try a different adhesive for the next one and will let you know.

It is precious!!! You may have just talked me into buying file. I too do NOT like having to buy them, but this one may just be worth it. SUPER CUTE!

Love this! I do a lot of 3D paper crafts - many with curves and I can tell you that I have had the best success with terrifically tacky tape (that red tape from Provo Craft). It holds really well - I use it all the time!

Jade-
I thought of using the terrifically tacky tape but didn't know if it would hold. Maybe I will try that next!

It's adorable! I saw their site for the first time yesterday. They have some different patterns and I loved them. Thanks for sharing.
