My craft for the month was to make a Tea box to organize all of our tea. I am so pleased with the end result of this simple DIY. I’ve been trying to come up with a way to organize our tea for months, and lucky enough, I’ve also been trying to think of some way to use the wooden briefcase that we DIYed as the card box for our wedding:
It finally dawned on me recently that the old suitcase would be the perfect tea box with a bit of customization. I love having lots of different types of tea on hand for guests and for myself, but I haven’t found a good way to store it. The suitcase is just big enough (but not too big).
Up until now I’ve always just kept all of our different tea boxes up in the cupboard, which as you can imagine has been super inconvenient. To find the right one, I have to pull the boxes down one at a time to until I get to the desired tea.
I love the tea boxes that servers bring to your table at the end of a nice meal, and I wanted to replicate that same sort of feel. The suitcase is the perfect teabox because I can easily display all of the different types of tea, and it’s simultaneously easy to store.
Once you have your length and width measurements for your rectangular dividers, use a flat edge to trace the rectangles on the chipboard with a pencil. It’s important that you carefully trace the rectangle to the right measurements so that the dividers will fit snugly between the rows. Once you’ve traced the rectangles, use the cutter to cut out the pieces.
