Unique Crafts Using Tea Cups and Saucers

I have several old tea cups and saucers and want to make something with them. Any ideas? I know about using them as candle holders or flower holders. I was looking at doing something a bit more dramatic. Glue several together maybe for a center piece to hold flowers? or something different. Any good ideas?

You could make elaborate pin cushions, using rice for filling and velvet for the cover. Use as many decorations on it as you would like, very pretty and useful. Use hot glue to hold cup to saucer. Put gold or silver rick rack around the bottom of cup to cover glue.

I made ornaments out of some using pics from Walmart and tied a ribbon on the handle. I gave them as gifts. They were very pretty!

Use some E-6000 glue and put the cup on the saucer to adhere using the proper instructions, with the handle up. Put a small teddy inside, with a dot of glue so it will stay inside, or use a flower, a collectable, or anything that will fit that makes it unique. Glue a ribbon to the handle and hang on the wall.
