In the steps following, we show you how to cut out and assemble your own teacup and saucer printable. Using our photographs as a guide, you can follow what to do, step by step.

The teacup is set out on a single A4/Letter sized page. The page contains the cup body, cup base, saucer and handle. You can see how the pages are set out in the image below.

Each file is in PDF format, and are downloaded enclosed in a zipped folder after purchase. Here is how to unzip files from zipped folders. 

We offer our printables as instant downloads, meaning you can download them immediately after purchase! Then, open each file in the latest version of Adobe Reader, and print straight away!

Print Your Teacup

We recommend printing on crisp white card stock of at least 200gsm, or thick photo paper. In our example, matte card stock has been used.  Print at Actual Size.

When printed, your pages will appear as shown above.

Assemble your Teacup

You will need: a pair of scissors and glue or tape

1. Cut out your teacup body, handle, base and saucer parts along the outline, which are the solid lines. Be careful to avoid cutting off the tab on the cup body.

2. Then cut along the dashed lines on the cup base. Cut a slit along the dashed lines on the cup body. You should end up with pieces that look like those in the image below.

3. Gently fold up the sides of the cup base, as shown in the pictures below. This is for easy fitting into the cup body, which we will see later.

4. Next we will assemble the cup body. Simply curve the body around itself, with the white unprinted side on the inner side and the patterned printed side on the outer. Meet the ends together, so that you can insert the white tab through the open slit that you cut. Do not stick down yet.

Pick up the cup handle, and insert the ends in through the cut slit beside the tab. Ensure that the patterned side faces outward, then fold over the tab. Glue or tape to the inside of the cup body, to secure.

6. Then insert into place the cup base that we have already shaped. Glue or tape at the bottom of the cup body, as shown in the image above.

7. Now it is time to assemble your saucer. It is designed to curve upward slightly when the ends are brought together, to form a donut shape. For a tighter curve, overlap the ends more until you have your desired shape. Then stick them together with glue or tape.  

8. With all the separate elements of your teacup now cut and assembled, all there is left to do is pop the cup onto the saucer. You have now completed you
