Topic: Fantastic Folds
I offered to make a dozen of my paper teapots for a Mother's Day event. It had been so long since I made any that I had to reprint the instructions to follow!
I try to select designs that look like they might actually be china. The event colors were pinks, blues, and purples but I had no luck finding suitable cardstock in purple, violet, plum, lavender... So I settled on a range of pinks and blues.
It takes a bit over an hour to make one pot. But I did these assembly line (step one on all of them, then step two...) hoping to cut that down. No luck. It takes the same amount of time.
Here are the final 12:
An overall muted rose floral
a blue and cream stripe
solic bright pink with glossy flower imprint
a shimmery two-toned blue
a diagonal pink iris on text background
a blue toile
subtle pink nosegays on text background (this one is identical to my own)
blue glittery morning glory vines
an overall floral print on text
delicate pink lace with shimmery finish
glittery floral stripe
These were used as table centerpieces with small pots of blooming plants inside. 12 ladies got to take them home as gifts.
