Treat Mug – Tea Cup

July 11, 2016

As I mentioned yesterday, I watched a video by Linda Parker on how to create an Envelope Punch Board Treat Mug. When that video ended YouTube queued her video for making something similar, this time a tea cup, Tea Anyone? After I created the coffee mug in Cricut® Design Space I tried the tea cup.

Instead of stamping and heat embossing as Linda did in her video, I found an image I could use with the writing tool, Floral Bud Decorative Element – #M28D1C6 from Anna’s Garden Cards and Embellishments, and used the Cricut® Gold Marker.

Again, except for a couple of snips, all of the cutting and scoring, including the tea cup handle and the circle to cover the cup base, was done on the Cricut® Explore using the free Insert Shapes. I did use the WRMK Envelope Punch Board so the bottom of the cup tapered (I could not think about about all of the slicing and testing of the cut and I need to use my Envelope Punch Board more).  Here’s what my cardstock looked like before I started to assemble.

I think I should have also punched the last bit on the left, but I was afraid I was going to cut through and remove the bottom tab. I ended up snipping around there a bit after the cup was assembled.

The cardstock is from my stash. The doily is Doily – #M3B515 from the Cricut® Artiste Collection (Z3170) – retiring July 31, 2016.

If you would like to make your own tea cup, my CDS file (without the Floral Bud and Doily) is https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/42546822; please watch Linda’s video for assembly instructions. Here is a screen shot of my CDS screen with the score line measurements added.

I like this idea for birthdays. The cut is not large enough to hold a gift card (unless you don’t mind it sitting in the center of the cup and poking out of the top), but it is a nice size for jewelry – unless it is a huge piece.
