Hi everybody. I hope that everybody are having a good weekend.
We found this very cute idea here Сутрешното кафе на КРОКОТАК – с чашки от празни ролки | крокотак, and we fell love with it. It is to make a cup with cardboard tubes, it is so cute. So instead of buying plastics tea cup for playing tea party with our dolls, we can make our own tea party set. And when we don’t need them we can throw them away. And when we need them again, wow let’s make some more! You double the fun in having a tea party with your dolls.
To make these tea cups you need some cylindrical card boards tubes, double sided tape, a piece of cardboard for making the saucer , paint brush for decorating, scissors and acrylic paint. For very good instructions just visit the site, Сутрешното кафе на КРОКОТАК – с чашки от празни ролки | крокотак.
First cut off a length from your cylindrical tube such that it is as long as the height of the cup you need to make plus the length of the diameter of the tube. For example my cup was 5cm high + 3.5cm the diameter of the tube for a total of 8.5cm. Now make 4 cuts (in my example 3.5cm) equal to the diameter length so you can fold the flaps to make the base of the cup. The four flaps will overlap each other. These you can fix with the double sided tape. Cut off any excess trimmings.
For the handle cut about 1,5 cm of the cylindrical tube. And for the saucer just cut a circular piece from your cardboard
Now you can decorate your tea cup and saucer with acrylic paint.
