Alice in Wonderland Altered Tea Pot

You can't have an Alice in Wonderland themed high tea party without a special tea pot. I decided that I wanted to create an altered tea so picked up a cute little one for $3 from an op shop. There are some amazing altered tea pots on the internet for inspiration and I chose to go with a red/white/black theme to tie in with my Queens of Hearts outfit.
This is what it looked like before I started. The handle on the lid was particularly hard to use, so I modifed that by sticking a Scrapmatts chipboard clock over the top and then placing a large button on top of that to create a new handle.
Here are some detail shots to get a 360 degree view. Couple of different Scrapmatts pieces of chipboard used including the clock, keys, leaves and Scrapword. Washi tape has been placed over the handle and spout (matching that up was a pain!). Lots of bring with the flourish and on top. I adhered my flowers using foam dots but I think it would have been a lot more secure if I access to a heat gun.

Lastly, here is a quick shot of the playing card guards I also decorated the table with. I used a template I found here.  I think they look adorable and were really easy to make.
