Coffee With Friends

To enter my giveaway go HERE

Hello.  Welcome.  A while a go I went to town and had a coffee.  It came in this cup



So the thrifty crafter rinsed it out and took it home, cos I loved the colour, and the texture and the smile.  When I was cleaning up earlier today this popped up and I decided to repurpose for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



I cut a section of the cup into a cup shape! and added some tabs to keep it raised off the card.  I made a painty background using acrylic paints and a brayer and added two metal heart charms from Korthobby.



I added some coffee sachets.  



Love that smile

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  9. You have upcycled this great cup! I just got a cool cup with texture but made tea a couple of times and...tossed the cup in the garbage. If I saw this I would have upcycled that cup too!
