Introduction: Paper Mache Tea Cups

About: German-born, Montreal-based Graphic Designer/ Stylist with a passion for everything DIY & Vintage!


Did you ever work with paper mâché? It's really fun, you can do all kind of things like flying pigs and a cute boat, beautiful bowls, face masks and last but not least, a dress form!
After all these great inspirations, I decided to make tea cups.

You will need:

- Acrylic Paint
- Mod Podge
- Thin cardboard (Pizza Box, Cereal Box)
- Thin paper or newspaper
- Salt - Flour - Water

    I don't think these are meant to be food safe, they look more like they are just for decoration.

    I'm really surprised that this tutorial is still here since the creator of this pattern, Ann Wood, said on her blog that she asked you to remove this tutorial since the supposed author has not given her credit for creating this pattern, which she said took her over a year to finish. Including a link to one of Ann Wood's boats is not the same thing as crediting her as the creator of this pattern and I'm disappointed that Instructables seems to think that this kind of behavior is acceptable.

    Credit is given in the orig. Post.

    I've seen the original blog post (which looks exactly like this tutorial) and it doesn't mention Ann Wood by name and it only includes the same link you included here to one of her boats. You keep replying that you gave her credit on your blog, but saying that over and over again won't make it true, especially when you have made no effort to explain to anyone how or where in your blog post you gave her credit (other than to mention the link to her boat, which doesn't count).

    The only mention of Ann Wood's name is in the comment section by other people, so if you're trying to suggest that your decision to publish comments on your blog from other people that made a point of mentioning Ann Wood by name counts as giving her the credit she deserves, we're going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I think that the only way you can give her the credit she deserves is if *you* mention her by name as the creator of this pattern, and you haven't done that yet, here or on your blog.

    Love your website! Very creative.

    How beautifully you recreated an original Ann Wood design! Always best to give credit where credit is due.
