My father-in-law's birthday is today.  He is a tea drinker, so I wanted to make him a gift that reflected that.  We got him a gift certificate to the local book store, and I made this to put it in...
I found this teapot gift box file in the Silhouette online store. I used Sarita papers from Close To My Heart, and cut it out on my Cameo.  My in-laws collect art from the Southwest US, and this paper reminded me of some of the art they collect.
Here's another view of a slightly different angle:
I made him a card to match the theme.  Here it is:
This teapot shaped card is a cutting file from The Cutting Café. Ribbons on both projects are from 3 Girl JAM. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co., and is mounted on a piece of wood veneer, also from Unity.
How's that for a coordinated pair of gifts?
I hope you like my inspiration for the 3D challenge.  Now, go check out what the others made, and make your own 3D creation!
