Great idea for Mothers day gift! Kids love making these.


Did you know that often a thrift shop throws away old tea cups if they are missing a saucer? This is how we recycle them .
Look for bone china tea cups at your local thrift shops. Many times they are thrown away if a saucer is missing.

    Great idea, certainly colorful . And many mothers have enjoyed receiving one since this project was first posted. One of my brothers and his wife just began printing on coffee cups, with the addition of your project they could have something more. Thankyou. I will let them know.
