Warm Winter Wishes!

Hi everyone! Here in Colorado the nights are getting colder and it's perfect weather for a nice warm drink! These adorable teacups will hold all kinds of goodies and make the most adorable gift!

I used the tutorial found here on Christy's blog and I started with the adorable 'All Bundled Up' paper pack from Carta Bella. Such amazing paper with great winter colors and designs! These cups are so simple to put together- you could create a whole slew of them and then fill to the brim with your choice of warm treat!

Carta Bella paper is perfect for this kind of project as it is a heavier and textured card stock. This cup features winter stripes with a fun polka dot handle! The finished cup stands 3 inches tall and can be filled with tea bags, coffee packets or like mine, hot cocoa and marshmallows!

Here is a close up of the adorable tag that is attached. I layered a couple of 'Tremendous Tags' cut out of the 'All Bundled Up' paper along with some of the coordinating sticker elements. I added a bit of fun flock to the mittens and some Wink of Stella for sparkle. 

The red tea cup was originally cut about a 1/4 inch taller so I could scallop the edge for a bit of difference. I also cut the handle strip a bit wider and scalloped that as well. This cup features the beautiful and aptly named Snowflake Swirl from the 'All Bundled Up' paper pack. It too is filled with a goodie bag of cocoa and  topped off with it's own charming tag!

More of the beautiful patterned paper die cut into tags and layered with more stickers and sequins. I colored in the teacup image with Copic markers and added clear Wink of Stella to the snowflake and steam.

Of course, you can't have a warm cup of winter cheer without a bit of sweet to go with it! This tiny treat box is covered with the same fabulous designer paper and filled with chocolate goodies! I added in a big looped bow along with another of the sticker elements and more sequins! What a sweet treat this will be!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
