For the teapot, I clipped one of the apples from the left over DSP and peices of the teapot from the "From My Heart" stamp set.  Dimensions to lift the banner and the teapot adds extra dimension.
Here's a glimpse of the inner pocket with a cider packet and some cinnamon sticks tied up with ribbon.
I hope you've enjoyed my Creative Take on the Pocket Acorn from the Septemeber issue, Autumn Amidst of the Paper Crafters Sampler.  Now, hop on over to Lisa Hensley site and check out her festive project.
