LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

Patterned Teacup cards

Before the Easter holidays we did some craft at Guides.

I decided to make a card that could be used for Mother’s Day (this year it was the 30th March in the UK), but that could equally be used for anyone who needed a boost.

I had originally seen this as an activity some years ago, but didn’t have any instructions – it was also, as I recall, a card made in the shape of a teapot. I researched the idea and found some nice instructions here :http://spoonful.com/crafts/teacup-tidings .  It was a paper teacup and saucer, made to stand away from the card in order to hold a teabag

I showed the girls how to make the card and let them loose on a pile of plain and patterned papers and here are the results:

As you can see one girl re-figured the template to make a coffee mug (bottom left) and one disregarded the template entirely and made a PG Tips box for her card (which inexplicably didn’t get photographed) – but that’s ok; I’m all about artistic freedom :)

There were mother’s day poem options, but most of them wrote something personal and endearing. A success overall, though I didn’t get one as my Guide was appearing in ‘Alice’ at school that night. Oh well.
