Feel free to create your own color palette for this craft, choosing scrapbook paper that coordinates with the color of your egg carton. A store-bought tea bag works perfectly fine if you don’t have time to make our personalized tea bag.

First, cut one egg holder from a corner of your carton to create a teacup. Three sides of the teacup should remain intact and rounded, while the backside should be relatively flat. Next, create two holes on one side of your teacup using a thumbtack. Then, cut a 2.5-inch piece of pipe cleaner. Round your pipe cleaner, and insert each end into a hole to create a handle for your teacup.

Create a Card Base

Fold the sheet of kraft paper card stock in half hamburger-style to create a card. Then, cut out a 7″ x 4″ rectangle from the patterned scrapbook paper. Glue the scrapbook paper to the center of the front of the card using a glue stick.

Decide where you’d like to glue your teacup, and use a pencil to mark it. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach the flat side of the teacup to the front of your card. Place your tea bag in the teacup.
