Paper tea cups

History[ edit ] Paper cups have been documented in imperial Chinawhere paper was invented by 2nd century BC. Textual evidence of paper cups appears in a description of the possessions of the Yu family, from the city of Hangzhou. In the early 20th century, it was common to have shared glasses or dippers at water sources such as school faucets or water barrels in trains.

I had to make one. It took me a lot longer than I anticipated. These would be perfect as use for cupcakes, biscuits, little presents, used as gift boxes or just as gorgeous packaging. Paint them, embroider them, bedazzle them… The options are endless!

I used my Graphtec plotter cutter to create this project, but you could with a little time, use an x-acto knife to cut it out. I used a very strong and quick drying gel adhesive think superglue strong that allowed me to put it together quickly and accurately.

But it is also very unforgiving and I did stick my fingers to the first cup a couple of times! The handle, by far the most fussy part, is created by using the three pieces above. Fold along the score lines on the long strip.

Fold along the score lines on each of the handle sides. Then glue the tabs on one side of the handle strip to the inside of a handle side, bending the strip so that it aligns with the outer edge of the handle side.

Align the other handle side with the tabs, you may need to use a small pencil or skewer to get inside the handle and align the tabs up neatly. To complete your handle just make sure that the tabs on each of the handle sides are folded in.

Put aside the handle and take the two large circular windmill pieces.

Fold along the score lines and overlay the two pieces as shown. Glue the first centre tab on the side of each windmill arm to its adjacent windmill arm as shown above. Make sure that the edge of each arm is aligned with the score line on its sister piece.

At this point you continue to glue the arms together up to the top edge of the teacup bowl. To put the tea cup base together, take the two small windmill pieces and put them together in exactly the same manner as the tea cup bowl.

The final step requires glueing the tea cup base to the tea cup bowl, aligning with the centre circles to do so accurately. And then glueing the handle to your tea cup in your preferred location. What do you think? For the lid, cut out the two pieces and after folding along the score line, glue the tabs on the long strip to the inside of the lid top, aligning with the outside of the circle.
