Timeless Tuesday: Altered Christmas

Good morning Flourishes Friends! It's inching closer and closer to Christmas, are you ready? This week we are challenging you to : An Altered Christmas!  Create Anything That Isn't a Card for Christmas (Decoration, A Treat Item, A Banner, A Gift, ect.)!

In my family we are either coffee or tea drinkers and I wanted to create a simple gift for everyone with a little variety. I made two kinds of cups, and in each of them there are two different kinds of teas, a hot cocoa packet, a Starbucks Via, a Nonni's Chocolate Turtle Biscotti and 2 or 3 Ferrero Rocher Chocolates.

For my first cup I used Flourishes "Apple of My Eye" for the cider cup image, and a sentiment from Flourishes "Vintage Postcard" set onto Classic White cardstock. I colored my image in with Copic markers, then I created a small tag and tied that on to my cup.
I used the following Copic Collections:

For my second cup, I used Flourishes "Peace and Joy" image that I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using the Peace and Joy cut file. Then I colored it in with Letraset's "Raspberry" and "Sangria" watercolor markers. I created a tag with some dies and tied it on with some ribbon.

I really had fun creating these cups for my friends and family and I hope they like their Christmas gifts :)

Here is the rest of the Timeless Tuesday team with their best "Altered Christmas" projects and ideas!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  3. Were these the mugs you were talking to us about the other day! Fabulous! One can make a beautiful gift like this by getting some at the dollar store then filling them up with goodies. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    1. Yes, these are the ones that I mentioned, and both of them are from the dollar store. I didn't want to spend too much since I stuffed each of them with so many goodies ;) Thanks, Marie! :)
