Teacup Party Favor Holder - closeup of finished cup and saucerThis recycle craft, is made from a patterned tissue box. It is a tea cup party favor, to be filled with candies or mints for an upcoming bridal shower with a tea party garden theme.


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 or 2


  • 1 patterned tissue box
  • optional X-acto knife
  • 1 template
  • scissors
  • glue


  1. Take tissue box apart and flatten.
  2. Teacup Party Favor Holder - open box seams
  3. Find or make a pattern the size of the teacup desired. Try to make the pattern small enough to fit one pattern on one side of tissue box and the other pattern on the other side. The measurements of the teacup that I made here are: 1 1/2" high by 2 1/4" wide (from one side to handle). The tabs are 4" long by 1 3/4" wide.
  4. Teacup Party Favor Holder - rough sketch of template
  5. Cut the pattern out and glue to wrong side of tissue box. (You should be able to fit two patterns on one tissue box.)
  6. Teacup Party Favor Holder - template cut out

  7. Let dry and then cut out with scissors and/or an X-acto knife.
  8. Teacup Party Favor Holder - cut from final cardboard
  9. Fold on lines shown on pattern. Fold in tabs. Glue sides together.
  10. Teacup Party Favor Holder - fold and glue on patten lines
  11. With scraps, use a lid to make a pattern for the saucer. Cut out with craft scissors. Glue teacup to saucer. With the top of the tissue box, I made a picture frame for the bridal shower party favors. No waste here! (In the background is a teapot I made from a tissue box. See my other entry!)

I used this but changed it to add insert and tabs

There are others you can google and then format the design to the size of the tissue box side.
