Cut chipboard 8pcs 2"x4-1/2", cut a window 1/2" from the edges, apply Distress Ink on edges.
Use connecting strips to connect 7 of the panels, and adhere also on the top and bottom, left one panel for future steps.
Cut acetate 8pcs of 1-5/8"x4-1/8" and adhere at the back of the window, left one for future steps. Cut papers of the same size as the chipboard panels, cover both insides and outsides.
Cut 2 octagon shape of 4-7/8" width from chipboard for top and bottom of the teapot, cover one of these with papers on one side.
Cut one circles of 4-1/2" diameter from chipboard. Cover with paper on one side , then punch a hole in the middle.
Cover both ends of the toilet tissue roll with an inch of paper, cut shapes ready to fold and adhere as shown.
Cut 4 strips of 4-1/4" height papers (12" long each), connect them one by one, then adhere the start on the toilet tissue roll.
Trace and cut chipboard for the base of the tissue roll, punch a hole in middle. Then adhere one end of the tissue roll with the large circle in step 5 and the other end with the small one just cut.
For the last panel, adhere acetate on the back, then adhere on the end of the scroll album. Cover both sides of the panel with papers of the same size.
Pick up the panels and the plain octagon from steps 3 and 4. Adhere the panels on the octagon, cover the base with paper, then punch a hole in the middle.
Then go to finish the scroll album. Glue the cotton candy stick into the crystal door knob, use strong glue.
Put the stick through the octagon from step 4, which is already covered with papers on one side.
Put the top through the scroll album.
Here how you can go through all the holes, don't cut at this point, use super strong glue to adhere the cotton candy stick with the chipboard, leave dry.
Put the whole set of scroll album into the teapot from step 10, adhere the top with the panels using the connecting strips you did ready in step 2. Here at the bottom, don't glue, just cut the excess.
The main body of the teapot is finished. Die-cut shapes for handles and tips, cut them to fit, and cover all sides with papers. (if you don't have the dies, you can draw a template to trace)
Glue the tips and handles by the edges of the window as shown.
After everything put together, the opening panel can fit into the teapot and not falling out.
As you will use the crystal door knob to turn the scroll album, you need super strong glue to adhere the connections. If that's not work, you can still turn the toilet tissue roll to close.
Love so much the vivid colors.
Fussy cut different elements from papers for layers.
Hiding a diving man at the back of the window, looking at who are going to open it, ha!
Petaloo flowers, decorative chipboard and shells to decorate the top of the teapot.
The other side of the teapot.
Use fussy cuttings to form the layers outside the teapot, mixing with paper flowers and chipboard.
Seaweed cuttings inside the teapot.
Cut out cards and patterns from the papers to decorate the scroll album, remember that the album will become thicker after you adhere many photos and cards.
Fussy cuttings inside the teapot.
Seaweed is a must element.
Put also stones and shells inside.
Adhere the fussy cuttings in between the stones and shells will make it easier to stay upright.
