How to Make


1.   Transfer your templates onto your chosen paper. Cut the two large circular windmill pieces. Fold along the score lines and overlay the two pieces. 

2.   Glue the first tab on the side of each windmill arm to its adjacent windmill arm.  Make sure that the edge of each arm is aligned with the score line on its adjacent piece.

3.   Continue to glue the arms together up to the top edge of the teacup bowl. The top of your tea cup may be a little uneven, just trim the top neatly with scissors when you’re finished.

4.   Cut the scalloped round shape and attach to the bottom of the tea cup.

5.   Cut the 2 handle shapes and glue them together and glue them to the side of the tea cup. Add gems to each side.

6.   Decorate with pretty paper flowers
