Optional: Add a sentiment to the separate rectangle before or after cutting (mine is blank).

Insert sentiment rectangle into (optional) curved cuts.

Crease on scored lines.  The center fold, cup handle and teapot handle-to-base are valley folds.  The tiny crease on the tea pouring from the spout is a mountain fold.
