Recently my cousin Teresa called and asked what I was doing...nothing of course! So she came down to spend the night. She wanted to go to Dollar General and get some double wall tumblers for a Christmas project. We had made some for her grandkids at Valentine's day and they really loved them. We were able to find the tumblers for $2.50 each and she got quite a few so we could fix them up. When Teresa checked out the cashier asked her if she wanted her receipt and Teresa said "No, don't think I will be bringing anything back". Quick lesson...always get your receipt! I had told her about the glass cutting boards a friend of mine had done, I can't say who since they are gifts she has made, and we decided to go to Dollar Tree and see if they had any of the glass cutting boards.
I posted about the find on Facebook and my friend Joy, aka Happy Happy Joy Joy, promptly went to her Dollar Tree and snagged up some of the tumblers. She also made a post about some other cool finds at Dollar Tree that crafters can alter. You can see the post HERE.
Later on I showed Teresa once again how easy it is to do the vinyl in Make The Cut and we discussed the Silhouette Cameo. She has talked about them before and her daughter would love to have one for projects. We started looking around at the machines on the internet and she was able to find a good deal on a Cameo on eBay that even came with some vinyl...so she bought it! That reminds me I need to call and ask her if she got it yet since that was last weekend.
I wanted to get a picture of the tumbler done but Makaylah promptly wanted me to put juice in her cup and then wouldn't let go of it for me to get a picture. This was the best picture I could get of the cup and I am lucky I got it! She really loved her cup and knows it has her name on it.
It's hard to tell in the picture but I did a shadow of her name and welded the ladybugs to the shadow and then did the top layer in lime green. Next time I will have to remember to take a picture before handing it to the recipient. Especially when it is a 2 1/2 year old toddler who loves ladybugs!
