Suspended T-cup

Hi everybody,

It's been a very long time since I blogged and need to get back to posting!

Thought I would start with this Suspended T-cup which I made recently for my Mum's Birthday - she loved it (hope you do too)


These floating T-cups are easier to make than they may look.
Here are a few pictures to show how I made this one.

To start you need a pretty cup and saucer and an old fork. You need to bend the fork so that the prongs can be glued to the saucer and the handle glued to the inside of the cup - afraid I forgot to take a photo of this. I used a hot glue gun to stick the fork in place. 

Next you need to cover the fork with something like dried moss or dried grass used by florists. Again I have attached this with a glue gun and you need enough to hide the fork.

Next I have die-cut quite a lot of flowers from different shades of pink card and inked the edges of the petals with distress inks. You will also need some leaves cut from green card. After inking the edges the flowers have been shaped and layered together.

Cover the moss or grass with the flowers, mixing up the colours and designs.

Finally add in the leaves to finish.

You will need:
Signature Collection Floral Delight - In Bloom & Pretty Petals dies
Signature Collection English Country Garden - Lazy Daisy, Grand Floral,
Floral Duo & Roll up Flower (from Crafter's Companion)
Distress Ink Pads - Shabby Shutters, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar,
Worn Lipstick & Picked Raspberry


Happy Crafting xx
