Baker's Tips:

Use your paper piercing tool to pierce a circle before assembling the card stock. There are a couple of great ways to do this if you don't have a guide. One way is to punch out a scallop and pierce between each scallop. I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch for this sample. I felt the holes were spaced a little too far apart, so I rotated the scallop. Because the holes disappear from sight when you rotate it, turn the paper over and hold it up to a light source to help you align each hole in the center of each scallop. Carefully place back on your piercing surface (mouse pads work great!) and pierce again between each scallop. (This worked the best for me to get the size circle I wanted. You could also pierce at the top of each scallop and avoid the more difficult realigning).

Another way is to punch out a circle and draw yourself a guide. I'm a bit of a measuring freak and so I used a quilters ruler to help me do this. Or, you can punch out a piece of printer paper, so you will be able to fold it to get your guidelines evenly spaced.

Now that the hard part is done, stamp your tea cups on Whisper White card stock, cut them out, and pop them up with Dimensionals.
