The Joy of Tea and Knitting


  • Pattern of teapot
  • Light green marbled cardstock sized 8.2” x 5.6”
  • Pink cardstock with white polka dots
  • Matches
  • Light green wool
  • Pink and blue square grid Washi tape
  • Small flat-sided dark pink rhinestone beads
  • Purple scrapbook letter stickers
  • Two purple scrapbook photo corner stickers
  • One small paper heart scrapbook embellishment
  • One sheet of dark green sugar paper
  • Craft glue
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors



  1. Score the 8.2” x 5.6” green marbled cardstock length-wise to create a card sized 5.6” x 4.1”.
  2. Using two matches as knitting needles, cast on 10 stitches onto the matches. Trim the extra tail of wool that might be left over from casting on to about 1 inch long.
  3. Using knit stitch, knit approximately 8 rows, and then start knitting the ninth row, but do not finish knitting it. Trim the wool, leaving a tail of approximately 2 inches.

  4. Trace and cut the teapot from the pink cardstock with white polka dots.

  7. Add a strip of Washi tape to the top of the card, and use the scrapbook letters to spell Good-Bye over the Washi tape.
  8. Add the finishing touches to the front of the card by adding the scrapbook embellishment to the teapot, and glue a few small flat-sided rhinestone beads onto the letters.
  9. Print the following onto the green sugar paper, cut it to size and glue it to the inside of the card: 

“Happy days are here at last.
The days of 9 to 5 are past.
I've worked all my life and paid my dues,
Now I'll do just what I choose.”
