Tea…Have a cup

I love creative party favours. And from years of planning and attending parties most people appreciate party favours that they can either eat or for children, play with. These party favours absolutely fit the bill, being cute, creative and edible (drinkable?). I made these in bulk for Baby’s first birthday for the adults. Her theme was Enchanted Tea Party. I originally found the tutorial here. And not going to lie because they did take some time but I don’t mind tedious crafts (that’s why Netflix exists).

List of Materials:

Materials for DIY tea cup party favours

  • Scrapbook Paper in Various Pattern
  • 8-1/2 X 11 template, like a note pad
  • Exacto knife
  • Glue stick
  • Glue gun + glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Artificial flowers
  • Ribbons
  • Gems
  • White Card stocks

Step One: Create the correct size of paper for printer

I only had 12×12 scrapbook paper and in order to feed the paper through my printer I had them down to size. If you prefer you can always buy 8-1/2 X 11 scrapbook paper but I already had tonnes of 12X12 at home so I made do. I used the note pad as a template and cut out the needed size with a exacto knife. Remember to place something underneath.

Step Two: Print template

I used the templates provided on the original site but I did mess around with it in order to get the right size I wanted. The original template is a bit smaller than I wanted so I did increase the print size and faded the image to get a light grey outline instead of the black, which I found too stark next to the pretty scrapbook prints.

Step Three: Cut, Cut, Cut and Glue

Cut out the tea cup and fold as directed and use the glue stick to assemble the tea pot together.

Step Four: Decorate

I first took the artificial flowers and complete disassemble them, so that I can mix and match the flowers to make them less uniform.

Then because I don’t have enough things to do, I re-assembled the flowers in various form and hot glue them whole with a gem or decoration in the middle.

Then hot glue them to the assembled 3-D tea pots.

Step Five: Fill with goodies

I filled mine with three tea bags each and tied them off at the top with a ribbon and thank you tag.

Tell me they aren’t the cutest. Here they are on the day of the party.
