Saint Patrick's Day Teacup
St. Patrick's Day Teacup
Base is cut out from Cricut "Love You A Latte" cartridge x2, and I made a little box for the center to hold the Wilton tea stained doily, Twinings Irish Breakfast Teabag and two Andes Mints. The cup forms were run through the Cuttlebug Victoria Embossing Folder to give them that Irish "Belleek" look.
1/8" ribbon was wrapped around the front of the cup as is an antique piece of trim before adhering it to the box. The tea tag was embossed with the Stampin' Up Needlepoint Border embossing folder then stamped with the Itty Bitties clover and "tea" from the Tea Shoppe stamp set on both sides. Crochet thread was attached after punching a tiny hole in the tag, taped to the back of the cup before adhering to the box.
By adhering the ribbon and tea tag to the front of the box before gluing it to the box keeps it from shifting and holds them firmly in place.
Three clovers were punched out of Stampin' Up Garden Green and glued to the front of the cup. Martha Stewart flower punch in Elegant Eggplant and a one of the SU 3 Flowers punch flowers were put together to make the flower with a dot of Liquid Buttercup Pearls for the center.
This is a simple and easy project and I know all of my Irish Clan will love receiving them.
