3D Paper Tea Cup For Mother’s Day!

Hi everyone! I’ve been really loving three dimensional paper projects lately, and in this new tutorial, I’m back with another one – a paper tea cup for Mother’s day! (or any other occasion!) These are so cute and an especially fun gift for anyone who loves tea. In the video, I filled mine with tea packages but the tea cup could hold candy or small gifts also!

Click the image below to watch the video tutorial:



  • Card stock (heavier weight paper should be used for this, it will make it much stronger)
  • Glue (I used a glue gun, but other adhesives such as Tacky glue or a glue stick should work)
  • Ribbon (works best if it’s 1/8″ width or thinner)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

    This is one of my all-time favorite patterns of yours, especially for Mother’s Day and birthdays 🙂 – Keep up the good work!


    I entered my email but when the link came up, I cannot open the file for the teacup. Any suggestions how to open it?
