It's amazing what you can do with die cuts, glue and a bit of glitter. This is a quick and easy project that would be perfect to use as a place setting. Fill with shreds as shown, or even candy for a sweet treat.
This is what I did:
1. I assembled the Teacup Scoreboard die cut then glued some small circles punched from pink paper onto the front. Using a small paintbrush I covered each circle with Elmer's Fabric & Paper Glue then sprinkled with pink glitter. I used Sugar Coating glitter from Doodlebugs, but any glitter works well.
2. I also die cut 3 flower shapes - 2 medium and 1 large. You can die cut these from colored card stock, or, do as I did, and cut them from white index card stock, then color each flower with water color paint. (I used yellow, orange and blue to match the glitter I wanted to use.)
3. Cut a 4", 5" and 6" piece of wire. Bend one end over into a "U" shape then adhere one piece to the back of each flower. I cut a second flower, covered the surface with adhesive (a tape runner works well) then, with edges aligned, I adhered it to the back of the flower over the wire to hold it in place. You could also put glitter on this side too.
4. To finish I filled the teacup with metallic shreds, adhered a self adhesive "jewel" to the center of each flower then place them into the teacup. Write a name on the tag then attach to the teacup handle with ribbon.
