Tea Time by Candlelight

Finally the wait is over! The second Sizzix Scoreboard Box challenge is here. As I explained in my last post on this topic, a number of professional designers received five new soon-to-be- released Scoreboard Boxes. Every two weeks we will decorate a box and post the finished projects on each of our blogs. We also have a contest going. Here's what you need to do. Go to Eileen Hull's blog at http://www.eileenhull.blogspot.com/  She has a list of all the participating designers. Click on each link to see what everyone has designed and vote for your favorite. As a bonus, if you leave a comment on any of the designer's blogs, you may win a prize too! Eileen will pick one comment from any of the blogs and that person will win a prize. So don't forget to vote!

This week's box was a blast for me. I just love teacups! But, as you can see I did something a little different. I designed my teacup box into a lamp. What a wonderful centerpiece this would make for you own tea party. After you complete the project, you just fill the glass 3/4 full of water, place a tealight candle to float on the water, light it and re-place the lampshade (As always, never leave the candle unattended).

I think another great gift idea would be to give one to mom for Mother's Day. What a wonderful way to say thank you! The gift ideas go on and on. So, be sure that you're first in line to purchase this great box when it hits the stores. After you make some for your family and friends, don't forget to make one for yourself. Then sit back, relax and have a cup of tea!!!
