Hi Friends! This is Abby with ScrappinAbby and I am thrilled to be sharing another Scor-pal project with you using the gorgeous Diane & Lexington paper collections from SEI! I knew right away what I wanted to create once I saw the beautiful floral papers in the two collections I received, Mothers Day Tea Cups. I have 4 Sisters-in-Law so I made one cup for each of them and one for my Mother-in-Law which I'll give to them at our Mothers Day brunch.
Products used: Scor-pal Scor-tape SEI Diane & Lexington Collections Doily Die Pearl trim Tulle Lace Flowers Additional embellishments
For the basic construction of the cups, I cut my selected card stock to 9 x 5 1/2
Then I scored each piece of paper at the 1" mark until I reached 8"
After rotating the paper, I made one last score at 1 1/4"
Next I made a small cut up to the 1 1/4" score line for each of the 1" score marks I made at the beginning. I also cut off the last 1" tab that's left and made a flap by cutting off the corners of the last 1" strip
Here's a video I made that walks you through this step as well as the construction of the handle. The cup portion is at the 3:32 mark and the handle is at 12:16 : )
Next I applied some Scor-tape to the flap
I used the 1/8" Scor-tape for the flaps on the bottom side of the cup
You'll do this step on 4 of your flaps and fold them down accordingly
For the handle I used a doily die with the same card stock I used for the cup
The next few photos show you how I cut the handle portion, adhered it together and attached it to the cup
I wanted to add an additional decorative element to the cup so I used more Scor-tape around the base and added some Lavish Lace trims
For the last construction step I used the 1" & 1/4" Scor-tape to adhere the cup to the "saucer" I made with another die cut doily from the paper and some chipboard
I used a variety of flowers, laces and pearl trims to embellish the cups and personalize them a bit. Here's one last photo before I added all of those items
And here are a few additional photos of the completed Tea CupsTo see additional photos of each Tea Cup up close and to see a video of the completed project, please be sure to stop by my BLOG & search for the Mothers Day Tea Cup post. I hope my project has inspired you to pull our your Scor-pal and Scor-tape so you can work with some of the gorgeous papers from SEI and create your own dimensional projects that you can use as gifts or to keep for yourself. Thanks for stopping by the Scor-pal blog and happy craftin!!
