Tea Cup Mother’s Day Card Craft
One of our more popular posts is our Mother’s Day Preschool Crafts. We were so inspired by this post, we wanted to come up with something creative and crafting on our own! This Tea Cup Mother’s Day Card Craft is for a Tea-rrific Mom! A mom who loves tea and loves to relax! It’s simple and easy, upcyling egg cartons and using scrapbook paper and pipe cleaners.
- 1 Cardboard Egg Carton
- Watercolor Paints
- 1 Sheet White Cardstock Paper
- 2 Sheets Patterned or Colored Paper (scrapbook paper)
- 1 White Pipe Cleaner
- 2 Pipe Cleaners, any color
- Hot Glue Gun
- 2 Tea Bags
First, cut 2 pieces of cardstock about 4”x 6” in size and cut 2 pieces of patterned/colored paper about 3”x 5” in size. We used white card stock and colored scrapbook paper.
When you have your paper cut, center each piece of patterned paper on top of each white piece, and glue down on them. These are your two cards.
Grab your egg carton. Use the bottom part of the egg carton and cut 2 of the egg holders from the end of the egg carton. Cut off one side of each egg holder, making sure to leave the other 3 sides intact. When you lay it down on the flat cut off side, it will look like a little round cup.
Once your teacups are cut, use the water colors to paint each little egg holder cup any color you choose, we used blue and purple. Let these dry for a few minutes.
While your tea cups are drying, cut 2 pieces of the white pipe cleaners each about 3” long. Cut 1 piece each of the colored pipe cleaners about 3” long. Twist a white piece with each colored piece so you now have 2 pieces that looked striped.
Make each one into a small handle shape and glue each one to the egg holder cups. I glued one end on the inside top, and the other end to the outside so they look like cup handles.
Glue each teacup with the flat cutout side down onto the cards. Put one of the tea bags into each little cup and let the string dangle over it.
These make cute cards for Mother’s Day or anytime! They would be fun for a tea party!Have a TEA-rrifc mom? These Beau-TEA-ful handmade Tea Cup Mothers Day Card Craft is precious activity for the kids or makes a sweet invitation to a tea party! #MothersDay #FrugalCouponLiving
