3D Tea Cup from TBBM2!

Hello my Crafty friends!  This is Kimberly over at My Craft Spot and I have a fun 3D project for you today!  (Scroll down for a video showing how to assemble the tea cup.)

I cut and scored the Tea Cup (page 29) at 9 inches from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge.  It's great to have two sided patterned paper for this project!  I thought it needed a little something along the top of the cup, so I added this (1 by 11) border, which I cut at 1 inch from the Paper Trimmings cartridge.

The sweet little tag is from my new Tiny Tags stamp set.  I stamped the outline, stitching, and sentiment.  Then I trimmed around the outline and matted the tag with brown patterned paper from Crate Paper. 

I tied a bow on the handle with Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon and then attached the tag with twine (American Crafts)

The doily was cut at 3 inches from the Sophie cartridge.

I used the red tape from Provo craft on the tabs.  The blue patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and the cream paper is bazzill.  I stamped the sentiment on cream paper from Close to My Heart.

This would look great with a cupcake in it or filled with treats!

Here is a video showing how to assemble this fun tea cup:
