It’s Merry Monday! Time for a Sweet Treat!

I have not posted in awhile due to the fact that every spare moment of my time for the last 4-5 days has been spent on Christmas Bazaar stuff!  Planning an event is a lot more work than I thought, but I would do it again in a heartbeat!  I work part time at the school in the town where I live, and the bazaar was a fundraiser for our PTO.  Since I have craft show experience, I volunteered to organize it.  We had 31 vendors, plus raffle baskets, food, kids’ crafts, and a lot more!  We ended up raising almost $3000 for the PTO, and that money will all go toward supplies, field trips, and equipment for students, so I would say the event was a success!

This week I will be sharing some of the completed items I had available at my table at the bazaar.  My first project is a mini coffee cup covered with DSP and filled with Hershey Kisses!  Not all of the supplies I used were 100% Stampin’ Up!, but the majority are!  On this project, only the coffee cups and cello bags are not Stampin’ Up! products.  Both items are from Amazon, and I will post links to them at the end of the post.

For the cup shown, I used the Under the Mistletoe DSP to wrap around the cup.  I found a cutting die that cuts the perfect sized piece to wrap these cups with.  It definitely makes things easier!  The die is also a non-SU product, and I will post the link for that as well below.  I love the mix of greens in this paper, and how it’s accented with white and just a hint of red for a pop of extra color!

For the top of the cup, I used a 2 inch circle punch to cut a piece of Real Red card stock, then layered it with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock cut with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I topped it with a Snowflake Trinket from the now retired Snowflake Showcase Suite.  The cup holds 15 Hershey Kisses.  The ones I used are really cute.  They look like little Santa hats:

Once the cup was decorated and wrapped, I wrapped it in a 4 x 9 Cellophane Bag, added the tag, and tied it with Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Candy Cane Season photopolymer stamp set, and the tag was cut with a die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.

These little cups were a big hit at the bazaar!  This would make a great gift for teachers, mail workers, coworkers, or even as stocking stuffers!

Here are the links for the non-SU products:

I hope to be back to posting regularly again this week!  Thanks for stopping by today!
