How to make the teapot and cup pop up card

Download cutting file set: PDF, SVG (how to use my SVG files in Cricut Design Space), DXF, Silhouette Studio.

Freewill contributions for files gratefully accepted.
(Suggested amount for this design: $1.99)






Cut on black lines.  Save the cutouts from the steam.

Score on red lines.

Add a sentiment to the separate rectangle before or after cutting (mine is blank).

Insert sentiment rectangle into curved cuts.

Crease on scored lines.  The center fold, cup handle and teapot handle-to-base are valley folds.  The tiny crease on the tea pouring from the spout is a mountain fold.
