Ok, now that we have the fine print out of the way, onto my first project!

Oh yes, yet another adorable 4 oz coffee cup full of treats and a gift card holder! But can you tell what it's made from?

I painted a Starbucks coffee sleeve with Picket Fence Distress Paint and used the Hero Arts Deco Pattern Stencil with some Distress Inks to create a fun background. A few snowflakes heat embossed with white powder and a holiday sentiment finished it all off! To keep the gift card from falling out, I glued the bottom of the sleeve together. The corrugated cardboard gives the whole thing such a fun texture!

The cup is just fun; I used a pattern I found online for the wrapper, then used my scallop punch and circle punch to make the topper. The stamps are from my oldest stamp set; the Fiskars coffee one. The red Tombow Adhesive works best for making sure these stay together!

Now then, who's been a good little crafter this year and wants a caffeinated treat? I'm giving away some caffeinated goodies of my own from the Prima Coffee Break collection! Just enter via the Rafflecopter tool below - you have until Sunday, December 14th to do so!
