We already know that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but how do porcelain cups “stack up”? In this charming teacup craft project, Shoppe Manager Vanessa Spencer uses her creativity to transform thrifted chinaware into an organizational unit for her favorite art supplies.
How did this organizational idea come about?
“It’s funny, really. I bought the cups with the intent to use them for tea. I quickly realized they were not microwave safe, which prompted me to think of other ways to use them.”
How do you keep the plates and cups in place?
“It’s very simple to do. I used Gorilla Glue to adhere them together, but any strong adhesive will work. Just apply (according to the label’s directions) and let dry.”
What art materials do you suggest to organize using the stacked cups?
