These pretty Mother’s Day Tea Cup Printables cost $3.50 on my teacher’s pay teachers store. You can get the “single” free Tea Cup Template here instead. But I do think the Mother’s Day ones are goreous and totally worth it and come with printable instructions too.

Prepping your Mother’s Day paper teacup

Choose your design and color it in!

Cut out all your pieces.

Making the paper teacup saucer

Add glue to one edge of the saucer and fold the other edge over to secure. The saucer will now have a 3d curve to it.

Cut slits into the saucer base.

You can choose to flip the saucer base over or glue it with the markings facing up. Here we flip it over.

Add glue to the back of the flaps and secure to the bottom of the saucer.

Making the paper cup

Add glue to one edge of the cup and curver round. Hold in place to secure.

Time to make the “base” of your cup.

Take the second smaller circle. Cut the slits. Flip over.

Add glue to the flaps and secure to the base of your teacup.

Adding the paper tea cup handle

Finally, make two folds into the teacup handle add glue and secure to the cup.

You can choose to make the handle double sided by gluing the two handle pieces together first. Or keep it simple by choosing your “left” or your “right” handle.

I think that these flower paper tea cups, make a great Mother’s Day Breakfast table decoration or can be given as a “3D Mother’s Day Card”
