tea-riffic mother's day DIY

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I decided to make tokens for some friends and Bud's teachers. Nothing elaborate. Just a simple yet thoughtful teacup card to let them know they are appreciated. Isn't that what really matters? 

If you want to try making some for your friends or co-workers, here's what you'll need:
1. sheets of printed card stock or scrap booking paper 2. tea-cup template 3. pencil 4. glue 5. cutter 6. string 7. scissors
Step#1 Fold your paper in half. Using the template, draw the teacup at the top of the paper with the cup handle touching the fold.  If you are using a 12in x 12in sheet of paper, you can make 3 teacups with one sheet.

Step #2 With a cutter, cut out the teacups. Glue the sides and leave the top open so you have a pocket for the tea bags.

Step #3 Using your extra paper, cut out small pieces for your gift tag. Tie the tag around your teacup handle with a string.
Happy DIY-ing, Bunnies!
