These colorful tea tins are perfect for storing your favorite summery flavored teas. Use them on your kitchen counter or gift them to friends and family.
Start by painting the tea tins white. You can use white gesso or alternatively use white acrylic paint, or even spray paint. However, if you are putting any kind of food or drink products in the tins then be sure to use something non-toxic.
Once the tins have dried you can stamp the colorful designs onto the outside. Some of the Christy Tomlinson stamps are the perfect height for the tea tins. Put the stamp onto a rock-a-block, and then ink the stamp with various StazOn Ink colors. I used Teal Blue, Blazing Red and Mustard. Gently roll the stamp on the outside of the tin (the rock-a-blocks make this so easy). Re-ink the stamps carefully between each application.
On the lids, carefully rub the mustard StazOn Ink and allow to dry. Stamp the Christy Tomlinson stamp designs onto white cardstock (this time using just one ink color), and then punch out the design with a circle punch and glue it to the center of the lid.
Stamp the word “tea” onto white cardstock using black StazOn Ink and the Fanciful Outline Lowercase Alphabet with an acrylic mount. Color in the letters with a yellow gel pen. Cut the word out in a rectangular shape. On the outside of the tea tins, place a few strips of the blue washi, and then glue the word tea on the center of the washi tape.
