Miniature projects, roomboxes made inside teacups

Maybe you have only one of your favorite teacups left. Why don't you fill it not with tea but:

- a tea shop

- a tea party

- a teacup making scene

Teacup Research/ Inspiration


Teacup Tips/Hints

  • To hold the cup to the saucer, you can use E6000 or Clear Silicone
  •  Use the cup as a backdrop, as in Susan Wheeler cards
  • Think of a gypsy reading the tea leaves. Play around with the ideas of Tempest in a Teapot, Shakespeare and the Tempest, the history of tea, the tea pickers, the Chinese tea ceremony or tea house in a lovely black cup trimmed red and gold. 
  •  Fill the cup and place scene on the top, for example ice skating penguins sliding down whipped cream to splash into the water/coffee below, or a tea garden, or wherever your fantasy goes.
