It's sponsored by Just Rite Stampers:
...wrap the cup:
I used a Starbucks take-out cup for this. You can buy a clean one if you like,
but I just washed one out (Gotta love recycling!) :o)
- Just Rite Just a Little Caffeine Borders & Centers (2" round)
- Patterned paper (this is Basic Grey)
- River Rock & White cardstock (for the sleeve & lid)
- Purple Onion Designs Late 1800's Script Background stamp
- Circle cutter
- Brown Pigment ink, clear embossing powder, heat gun
- Copic markers & Versamarker
- Take-out coffee/tea cup & sleeve
- Tombow Monomulti & Oh So Sticky tape
- Ribbon, paper piercer, needle & silver thread
- Seed beads (clear & silver ones dyed with Copic reinker)
- Pencil, scissors & hobby blade (exacto knife)
Step 2) With the paper still wrapped around, mark the inside of the cup (top & bottom)
Step 3) Adhere the patterned paper to the cup & trim the bottom if needed (I used Tombow Monomulti adhesive.)
Step 4) Stick double-sided tape around the top & bottom of the cup (This is Oh So Sticky Tape--which is oh so sticky hehehe)
Step 5) Add ribbon onto the double-sided tape (hides any gaps in the patterned paper at the top & bottom of the cup)
(the sleeve & medallion) :o)
I definitely want to make a coffee version of this with some chocolate covered coffee beans inside, because I'm crazy for the wee coffee cup in that Just a Little Caffeine set.
Step 2) Cut along the traced lines & lay the sleeve over it to score the paper where it folds.
Step 3) Score the other side of the sleeve.
Step 4) Stamp the cardstock, if you like & adhere it to the original sleeve.
This is stamped with Purple Onion Designs script background stamp in white ink. I used strong adhesive, but it's also stitched at the back so it was extra strong.
Step 5) To make the teeny glassy tea cup I did this schtuff:
A) Stamp the Just Rite tea cup using the Just Rite Stampers set Just a Little Caffeine Borders & Centers (2" round) & stamping on patterned paper (in Brown pigment ink.)
B) Emboss the outline in clear embossing powder
C) Shade the cup with Copic markers
D) Cover it with Versamarker to
E) Emboss a couple of times with clear embossing powder... then...
Step 6) Cut out the little handle bit out (the embossing makes it hold up to the cutting nicely.)
Step 7) Stamp the Just Rite border & the cup (to get the steam above the cup.) Colour it & then pierce & stitch beads around the image.
Step 8) Pierce & stitch silver thread for the steam (just random swirlies.)
Step 9) Adhere the medallion to the sleeve front.
Step 10) Slide the sleeve onto the cup.
Step 11) Cut a circle for the top of the cup (hides the writing etc...)
Step 12) Make a tea tag:
A) Punch patterned paper with a tag punch.
B) Stamp for & from (I used a Just Rite Times New Roman alphabet.)
C) Pierce & stitch around the outside edge.
D) Colour the outer border with Copic (Frost blue B-00 for faux mat)
E) Punch an extra tag out of cardstock
F) Stick it on the back (sandwiching thread to hang the tag with)
