It’s a tea party and you’re invited. While you won’t want to take a sip from this tea cup, you may want to steal a kiss from it. I just love how this tea cup turned out, complete with a little twirl on the handle. Can’t you just see one of these Hershey’s Tea Cups as favors at a tea-themed party?
I absolutely had to use the tea lace doilies and the Afternoon Picnic Designer Paper to create a saucer for my cup. The handle is made with some scoring, curling and rolling. I like to think of it as the quilling of 3D paper-crafting. Keep scrolling for the tutorial. Find out the supplies you’ll need to make this Hershey’s tea cup and where to get them HERE!
Hershey’s Tea Cup Tutorial
Step One Tea Cup Base
1. Start with a 9″ x 1″ piece of Crushed Curry Card Stock. On the 9″ side, score at the 5/8″, 1-3/4″, 3-3/4″ and 7″ marks.
2. Fold the strip inward along all the score lines.
3. Put Tombow on the shortest segment.
4. Bring the strip together to form a trapezoid.

6. Fold the strip along the score lines as shown.
7a. Use your bone folder to curl the second segment from the left from score line to score line.
7b. This is what your strip will look like when you have curled the one segment.
8a. Use a skewer to roll the last segment on the right.
8b. Make sure you roll the card stock tightly.
8c. Keep rolling until you meet the score line.
8d. This is what the the rolled card stock looks like when you’re done.
9. Put Tombow on the small 1/4″ segment next to the rolled card stock segment.
10. Adhere the small segment to the approximate half way mark of the long straight segment.
11. Here is what the Tea Cup Base and Handle look like before they are adhered together.
12. Put Tombow all over one of the sides of the tea cup base.
13. Adhere the handle to the tea cup base. Make sure that you hold down the pieces to get good adhesion all along the two segments.

14. Start with an 11″ x 1″ piece of Crushed Curry Card Stock. On the 11″ side, score at the 1″, 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″, 9″, and 10″ marks.

Step Twenty Chocolate!!
20. Pop eight Hershey’s Kisses into the spaces.
Step Twenty-one Embellishment
21. Stamp a flower from Petite Petals Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and punch out with the coordinating Petite Petals Punch. Stamp a greeting from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and cut out with the Big Shot and the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits Die. Also add a pearl jewel to the flower.
22. Adhere the Greeting and the flower to the top of the tea cup. I used a Dimensional to adhere the flower so it would stand out a little more.
23. Using the Big Shot cut two Crushed Curry Card Stock circles: one using the largest circle (without scallops) and the other using 5th smallest circle from the Circles Framelits Collections. Also cut a circle of Afternoon Picnic Designer Paper with the 4th smallest circle. The Doily is from Tea Lace Doilies (see supply list below).
24. Adhere all the pieces from step twenty-three together from largest to smallest.
25. Tea Time!!
