3D Tea Cup

Do not believe I've made many 3D projects. Used Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cricut cartridge to make this Tea Cup.

Used some double-sided designer paper from creative imaginations Iron Orchid Designs with a pretty Spring design.

Making this I learned it is all about the adhesive. I made one in a solid color non-double-sided cardstock to see if I could put it together properly.

I'm a tea drinker so I added my fav decaf Tea, Luzianne Tea, for the photo.

Supplies List
Cricut cartridge: Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2  9" Tea Cup
adhesive: red tape & Scotch ATG
ink: Memento Cottage Ivy
paper - cardstock - creative imaginations Iron Orchid Designs
ribbon: Celebrate Basic Narrows
Spellbinder: Nest Labels Four sentiment tag
stamp: Die-Namics Always Time For Tea
