Tea Cup Pop-Up : Paper Engineering

Mock-Up for Teat Cup Pop-Up Card by Rebecca Ruggles

Started designing a tea-cup pop-up card for Popupity. In the early stages, it’s helpful to work out the folds and layers with paper, then refine it on the iPad with drawing. In this first draft, I learned I need a flat spot on the cup so it will stand and the weight is heavier on the handle side. I like the layers of flowers and greenery inside the cup. The saucer will be a separate shape where a note can be written, and it all folds flat to fit inside an A2 envelope.
