Altered Starbucks Cup.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Survivor Day!!!! Its starting to wind down to the end of the season, so each week always has something good to watch, so I'm excited for tonight..

Today I am excited to be apart of the Coffee LoversBlog Hop hosted by the lovely Amy T.


 One thing I have been loving lately is my Starbucks... yum!!! esp those skinny peppermint mochas... yummy!!! I decided to alter a Starbucks cup and turn it into a gift card holder. Esp with the holidays it's the perfect time to have a quick on hand gift for someone, or a perfect gift for teacher or neighbor gifts.

I used some MME Market Street collection for my altered cup:

 And the top view:



I also cut strips of paper and added them inside, placing a gift card on top:



I played along with the MME December challenge to make an altered gift item.


**Also, since it's that time of the year to be a bit more grateful.. I am offering up a $10.00 gift card to one random commenter on this posts... I always am grateful for those who take the time to stop by, and make sweet comments. I REALLY do appreciate you.
PLEASE also make sure to follow me on bloglovin too. The comments will stay open till Dec 14 at midnight PST...**



There is an amazing set up sponsors for the hop too!  Be sure to hop on over and check them out as well.


Happy hopping my friends! I'm looking forward to checking out all the inspiration on the blog hop.
Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

  8. I don't know why I've never thought to cut my own raffia paper - it certainly would make using up all those paper scraps easier! This is such a cute way to give a gift card that packs a nice surprise!
    Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!
