ptiteasugar1.jpg  Do you know what this is?  Just sugar!  I molded the sugar in some chocolate lollypop molds from the craft store in acorns and leaves.  This is a very simple yet beautiful project!  Just take one beaten egg white and add it a little bit at a time to about 3 or four cups of white sugar (splenda may work too) and add food coloring.  Mix it up until it is a sandy consistancy and put in molds immediately.  You can also try miniature ice cube trays…anything that is a flexible mold should work.  Pack the sugar in well, then unmold immediately onto a cookie sheet.  Place all of the unmolded sugar in a 200 degree oven for ten minutes, and you will have beautifully molded sugar for your tea or coffee!! 


ptitea1.jpg  I decorated the tin of the sugar by using a big chipboard “E” and covering it with chocolate chip ink.  I then placed it where the “E” should go for the word “enjoy”.  This stamp is from Papertrey Ink’s Holiday Treats set.

ptitearedo1.jpg Of course you need some tea with your sugar!  Here I decorated a tea tin using chocoalte chip CS and ink and Papertrey Ink’s Ambassador monogram, Spiral Bouquet (leaf) and My Punny Valentine (acorn)

ptitea2.jpg  The top of the tin was done by using the Holiday Treats set again, with the tea cup for the center of the circle.

ptitea4.jpg  The card was made by using the borders and corners monogram edition as well as the “For You” sentiment from Papertrey’s Limitless Labels set.
