3D Floral Tea Cup

Made this 3D Tea Cup using Cricut cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2. Like the look using double-sided cardstock like this.

Stamped sentiment on vellum with black ink. Used clear embossing powder for sparkle and heat dried the sentiment on the vellum paper.

Added ribbon.

I'm a tea drinker. I use a teapot I bought at World Market for loose tea leaves. I boil hot water in another tea pot that cn be put on the stove burner and pour the hot water from that into this diffuser tea pot. I returned the first one I bought because the screw on the handle rusted after a few cleanings/washings. 2nd one the screw started to rust but I went to Home Depot and bought a stainless steel screw (had to buy a pkg of the screws since they did not sell the size individually) replacing it and the stainless steel has not rusted. Not sure why a stainless steel screw was not used by the manufacturer and when I emailed  World Market I told them what happened and they indicated they were surprised also that a stainless steel screw had not been used.
