Solo Cups! Because I Care, I will give Chocolate Treats! JustRite Style!

Welcome to JustRite's Day Two of their December Release!  I am chiming in today with two solo cup treat containers!  But before we get to those details, be sure to check HERE for all of JustRite's Day One Release Information and Inspiration! 

Hugs & Kisses Sentiments is a JustRite Clear Set featuring 26 stamps!  Lots of options here, gotta love that many stamps in a set!  Mix them up, make more than one item at a time! On a side note, I've recently been asked, why do I make two of most creations I post?  Well, the answer is, I have two daughters!  I very seldom keep anything I make, I love to give it away!

I started with white pointed disposable paper solo cups, you know the kind that are placed in plastic coffee cups at the office?  Using Memento inks, I sponged and rubbed ink on the outer cup until I reached the desired shade.  It dried rather quickly, the paper is a bit absorbent but nothing that breaks the sturdiness of the cup.  Next, I brushed a thin layer of water diluted glue over the entire outside cup before rolling in clear Martha Stewart glitter! Yes, this was FUN!

Basic stamping and trimming out the pieces is all it took to finish the embellished cups.  This green cup sports Webster Page's Bloomers from their GirlLand Kit.  The Tiny Twinkle Gems on the stamped borders add a bit of bling to balance out the glitter!  Burlap string holds the tags in place on each cup hanger.  The pink cup's Melissa Frances ruffled trim, with pompom trim atop it, and an added gingham ruffle embellish the cup rather nicely, no?   There you have it, two solo cups ready to be filled with chocolate, of course!  Let's have a party!  See you tommorow for Day Three!
