Magnolia paper bag

There is a monthly challenge on a magnolia blog to create a sort of 3-D item. Last month it was a cute little post it note holder bag, this month it is a brown paper bag mini booklet or album. 
  
I like my magnolias, its like playing with paper dolls! This did take a while to put together though, each magnolia takes a bit to color and then to figure out a layout for each page. 

The first scene is the front of the booklet, the theme for the entire booklet is tea. Tilda is sitting on a tea cup (not sure if you can tell, but that's what it is). I found an image of a teacup I liked online, plain white, printed it out to use as a template, cut out a paper cup and then embossed and colored the rim and colored in shadows to hopefully give it some definition. 


On the inside front page and I used the Papertrey Ink teapot raining down some flowers with Tilda on the side. I have to thank Traci for a lovely RAK containing the flowers and the pink pearls. 

The third page, as you can see, I sewed in half, when you fold the brown paper bag that's the opening and by sewing it in half lengthwise I have two long pockets to insert tea bags as a little gift inside. 

Then the last page shows my newest Tilda, the one holding the bird cage against a backdrop of one of the pendant nestabilities. 

The set uses a packet of SU designer paper to help coordinate colors. Thanks for looking.

Love that heart layer on the cover of the booklet!!! What a fun challenge - reminds me a bit of one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at SCS. So what time should I be over for tea? :)
