Now, I have to say that I have been sitting on pins and needles all month long,
just waiting to share my project with everyone....

Start with a 16 oz. coffee cup with lid.  Thank you Liz from Jaspers Coffee

Solid papers from my stash of scraps
Pattern paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. 6 x 6 paper pad - North Pole

Winter Penguin set (freebie w/ order in November 2012) - Jaded Blossom
Winter Candies - Jaded Blossom
Fancy Topper Die - Jaded Blossom

Winter Penguin colored with Copic markers: 
Y02, Y06, Y17, C-1, C-3, C-5, R20, R22, R27
E21, E35, E37, YG03, YG05, G05, B00, B05

Black, Crystal Blue, Red and Green ink
3/4" circle punch and Hershey Kisses

To finish my project:
I made my own cup sleeve and 3 banners, which were machine stitched to the Fancy Topper front
I cut out and mounted the Winter Penguin to the Fancy Topper
The Fancy Topper was attached to the cup sleeve using two red brads
Fill the coffee cup with the kisses, candy canes and coffee gift card

 Now the hard part...give it to someone special, or just keep it for yourself :)

Thanks for stopping by today and I really hope you enjoyed my project.
I know I enjoyed making it, using Jaded Blossom products and especially sharing it with you.

Now it's your turn, be inspired to create something AMAZING!
