  • Epiphany Crafts Vintage Settings in Tea Room



Other Supplies:

  • Diecuts by Jillibean Soup
  • Paper by American Crafts
  • Cardstock by Bazzill

  • Twine by The Twinery
  • Chick by Pier One Imports
  • Stamp by Stampin’ Up!
  • Ink by Stephanie Barnard for ColorBox

Before tossing out that empty tin, cup, whatever, think about ways you can upcycle it into something useful!
