A Mug Valentine

It's Texana Designs Time again and this time I used the Jam'n Mug and several sentiments. 

I thought it would be cute to make the mug a card in itself and attach it to a gift or the front of a card.

A few single serving coffees and creamers in a mug all tied up with a bow makes a nice gift for a friend or teacher. A tiny mug card stamped with "You are the CREAM in my coffee!" is perfect for a Valentine's gift.

Or attached to the front of a card. Leaving the inside blank to write a love note to that special someone.

I thought I would share my process of making the little mug card with you.

Stamp you image on a scrap of card stock Be sure to leave enough room to the left of the image to fold under on the straight edge to create your little card.

Fold the card stock to the back of the image to form your card. Be sure to leave part of the stamped image showing to the right side.

Cut out your mug.

Stamp your sentiment inside the card.

Stamp your image again on to Patterned paper.

Trim away the top of the cup and cut out the handle.

And then glue your patterned paper on top of the little card.

This card is stamped with the sentiment "You are the MARSHMALLOWS in my cocoa". I used some of my HOME MADE POP DOTS to create my marshmallows I used my large hole punch and simply punched some little circles. Since there was already adhesive attached to both sides they were simple to use. I attached one side to my card and then sprinkled some fine glitter to the other side, patting it with my finger to make sure it stuck. On these cards I stamped Jam’n Barbed Wire mini Heart onto the front of my mug.
