I'll Take a Dozen, To Go
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.

Hi Debbie, I love these teapots. Are they hard to do? Do you give out the pattern on this. I belong to Paper Embroidery group and have used your patterns there on many occasions.

I have only just looked at your blog site and love it.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful creations and I will now continue looking at your beautiful work.

thank you again for sharing. Love Gale
