I took some time today to make a little Valentine gift for Caleb's teacher. I have several of these plain white cups from a set of dishes. I have so many cups that I decided when we moved I would purge these and get rid of them. I later rescued them from the donate/yardsale box when I saw this post over at the idea room:
It really was super simple. I used my Cricut and Don Juan cartridge to make the stencil with some extra vinyl I had. I mixed up the paint, which was very simple. The recipe also from the Idea Room can be found here:
As you can see it calls for 2 tbls of non sanded grout to one cup of paint. Well, I was only doing one cup (the husband didn't want to take them to work) :) So I mixed a little grout and paint until I felt I had the right consistency. Mine is a little rough, but it works. I also baked for 1 hour to allow it to set and this is what I came up with:
And this is what it looks like filled with some Valentine M&M's and a little hand sanitizer:
It was a very simple project which I look forward to trying again soon.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
