Tea Bag Box

A while back I purchased a wood playing card box for only $2.99 at Hobby Lobby.

I wasn't exactly sure what I would use it for but lately I've been drinking a lot of hot tea and well a tea box open on the counter is not exactly aesthetically pleasing.. so I decided to make a little box to hold my tea bags.... 

I created a tea kettle sticker with vinyl on my Silhouette and stuck it right to the middle of the box.

Removed the hardware

and got my stain on...

Once I removed the sticker I have to admit that I was a little disappointed. I didn't event think about the fact that the stain would seep under the vinyl into the dry wood!

But the box has grown on me! I feel like it almost has an Ikat feel to it and plus now I can keep my tea bags on the counter!
