Valentine’s Cup of Sweetness

February 10, 2017

Good Morning,

 

 

Today I am sharing this tea cup I found on my Valentine’s Day quest for my son’s school. When I spotted this cut file in the Silhouette Store I knew I wanted to make it. It is actually considered a box (lidless) designed by Lori Whitlock.  While it may not work for the kids I think it strikes just the right tone for a teacher and staff gift.

Let’s get into it……

The completed tea cup measures approx. 2 5/8 (across the base) stands at 3 5/8 tall with an opening of 2 1/8. There is plenty of room to add a generous portion of treats. This cut file was relatively easy to put together. For the cup itself, you will need one sheet of 12×12 paper. It cuts two large pieces to form the base and sides of the cup. Then for the decorative layer (included in the file)  you could use either a 12 x12 patterned paper or a 6×6 pad would work as well.

Bo Bunny’s “Head over Heels” collection  (circa 2013) has been hoarded in my stash since it came it out.  I finally decided it was time to break into it. I used it to cover the front and back and keeping things simple I used a flower piece from the 12×12 chipboard sheet. It was tempting to want to put a lot of embellishment’s on it but since I am giving out about ten and make something for the classrooms, I decided to be easy on myself and keep it simple.

As the title says this is a generous cup of sweetness as it can easily hold 20 to 30 pieces of Hershey Kisses. I could also see it holding cocoa packets, coffee or maybe a gift card with some other small items. OOOH! Bath crystals or heart shaped soaps would be nice too, then again chocolate works nicely. 🙂

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post of what I finally decided to make for the kid’s classrooms.
