Maple Street Tea Shop

Laura Denison has done it again!  Isn't this Tea Shop she designed for her Maple Street series the cutest thing ever?

It uses Graphic 45's "Botanical Tea" paper collection which I have to say is one of my favorites.  I love how the browns complement the softer pastels - perfect for this shop.

The bay window has little paper curtains tied back with bows.  On the window shelf a tea service and a luscious cake are on display.

I love how Laura keeps coming up with different roofs and awnings to make each building unique.  It sure gives the street a fun and eclectic look now that I have four buildings in a row.

Inside the building is a cute mini album made from shaped chipboard. It was fun to decorate all the teapots and shaped pages.

A perfect place for using one of the Martha Stewart circle edge punch dies to make a doily.

The plate of cookies was one of Laura's ideas and she even included an image sheet for the cookies.  Only the center one is attached... all the other cookies slip underneath.

Another couple of tea pot pages...

... and the last tea pot page.

If you would like to make your own Tea Shop, please visit Laura Denison's site and look for the pattern under the Maple Street patterns.  Laura also has free videos that walk through all the construction details which makes it easy and fun to create the project.
