Christmas Cheer Tea Time

Had my hubby use his band saw to cut a piece of one of my old Sizzix cutting plate to a 2" width size so I could emboss and make the steam only be coming from above the tea cup. Hubby also used his sander to smooth the cutting edge of the plate. I have some old cutting plates that I'll have him cut to other sizes. Gifting some tea to a friend.
