Coffee Mug Gift Set

Ok, so one of my goals for 2011 was to try some new things and get out of my comfort zone.  I saw this project somewhere (I don't remember exactly where) and thought I'd give it a shot.  Turns out it's a piece of cake (or a cup of coffee).  I followed the Scor-Pal tutorial here.  It took me longer to arrange the flowers in it than it did to actually put the coffee mug together  I thought this would make a nice teacher gift for Valentine's day; maybe fill it with some cocoa or candy.  Since I don't have either of those right now I decided to fill it with some of my flowers from Wild Orchid. 

I am entering this set into the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Card and Matching 3-D Gift
JustRite - Scoring
Waltzingmouse - Sketch (on the coffee mug)
Creative Cowgirls  - Something new (technique)
Creative Craft Challenges - New Year's Resolution (try new projects)
Sweet Stampin' - Try something new (technique)
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes

  12. Thanks! This is a great idea... I will try this for the girls. I do not think it will matter if it is a tea cup or a coffee cup with the flowers that will make it real pretty. I will let Emma pick out the flowers.
    Thanks Brook, Just love the idea...
