is the weather cooling off where you are? i know it is by me. Our challenge this week was to create a fall themed gift and so i thought a gift to warm someone up would be perfect!
i got the template for this cute little coffee cup from My Time Made Easy - i hadn't used one of Lauren's templates in quite awhile and they are ALWAYS fabulous! it came together very easily! i filled the cup with packs of Cocoa and a cute little matching bookmark.
The template comes with pieces to decorate the cup with. rather than just cut them from patterned paper i decided to do the paper designing myself with some truly awesome products Susana carries in the store by Dreamweaver - the Leaf Background brass stencil, Metallic Gold Embossing Paste, and several Metallic F/X mica powders in Eye of the Tiger, Ivy Garden and Kimono Red. this is a technique that looks very high tech but is actually super easy and pretty quick.
I started by putting a bit of repositionable adhesive on the back of my pieces to keep them still on my craft sheet.
enjoy your day!!!
