Crazy 4 Cocoa - Anything But a Card

Hi there! I am so enjoying this great new Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge Blog. Cocoa is such a fun mouse to create with. This week our challenge for you is Anything BUT a card. We want to see what you can do with Cocoa that is NOT a card. I decided to "fix" a coffee cup. My mom needed a gift for an exchange at work. She had to have something valued at around $10, so I said I would help her. She brought me this...
And I gave her back this...I just love "fixing" things! =) I started by wrapping the PP around the cup. I took the wrap that was on it off, and used that as a template to cut the snowflake paper from Imaginisce. I also used the same paper on Cocoa's cup. This Cocoa image is called Cocoa's Latte, and is available in digi form. After paper piecing the cup wrap, I colored the lid and Cocoa with colored pencils. I punched a ribbon hole on each side, and tread a ribbon through. I wrapped the ribbon around the cup and tied it in the back. Last, I had to fill the cup with the gift. My mom brought me over some mint Hershey Kisses, 6 Starbucks Via packets, and a Tim Hortons gift card. I filled the cup with the kisses. Then I stuck the cup lid in the top of the cup and attached the gift card to that. Last, I stuck the little Via packets into the cup. I hope however gets this gift likes it. I know the kisses tasted good...=)!!!!
Now head on over to the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Cocoa Crazies have created for you. Then play along with us! Link your NON-card Cocoa creation to Mr. Linky at the bottom of today's challenge!
