Did you see these paper teacups by Ann Wood? I think they're wonderful to look at. She shares the template and tutorial here.
I suppose they're meant to be purely decorative, but I would probably end up storing tiny earrings or kid treasures (like pretty pebbles) inside. Do you ever make things just because they're beautiful? Or do you gravitate to more practical projects and crafts?
