It's Sunday!!!! Super Bowl Sunday too! Exciting if you're a football fan...I watch it for the commercials.
Have you been enjoying the Luv Bug weekend so far? I have a great little project for you today over at the Cuttlebug Challenges blog. It's a coupon book! It's the perfect way to say "I Love You" to your sweetie. And, because it's completly personalizable (is that even a word?) you can make it as nice or as "naughty" as you want. Go, hop over there and check it out. There are also 2 other versions of a coupon book I made there as well to get your creative mojo flowing. Then come back here to see the tutorial for the tag and mug I made for the Blog Hop.
1) Start off with a straight sided white mug. They can be found just about anywhere. I've gotten them in the past from the dollar store. I believe my mom picked me up this on at Target.
2" x 3" piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock
"Swiss Dot" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
"Greatest Moments" rub-ons by Stampin' Up!
Chocolate and red Prima flowers
Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon
Heart embellishment by Joann's
"Arch Lattice" border punch by Martha Stewart
Scrap of Whisper White cardstock
Cricut and cartridge
"Candle Light" Shimmerz
2) Cut out the rub-ons you wish to use on your mug. Here I've selected various love phrases and placed them in random locations on the mug. I use blue painter's tape to hold them in place.
6) Carefully pull up the sides of the bag and cinch the top together. Secure with a twish tie. Don't matter any kind will do...silver ones came with my bags so that's what I use....because it will be covered with the ribbon.
Oh, the mug is washable, very carefully by hand trying to avoid rubbing the rub-ons off.
Ok, let's start on the tag portion....
1) Using your Cricut and desired cartridge cut out "I Love You" on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.
