So excited to share my latest SVG Cuts project! I knew I wanted a ‘mug’ for holiday goodie packaging.. SVG Cuts does have a cute teacup in the Tea For You and Me kit, but the style just would not work. I needed a mug, darn it! Soooo.. I made a mug from a beach pail.. Oh, yeah! And the best part is, it actually WORKED, lol (I won’t get into how many ‘flop’ projects I’ve had.) I am not one for making the ‘outside the box’ projects.. my brain doesn’t work like that, but I gotta say.. I felt all crazy cool making my mug from a pail, LOL! *does a little dance*
So, here’s my holiday mug treat holder! I was going to put marshmallows in it, but the caramel popcorn looked prettier. Besides, I rather eat popcorn instead marshmallows, lol.
Not that I eat stuff I use for projects or anything… *wipes popcorn crumbs off my face*
Isn’t it so ‘warm’ feeling? I love the papers I used! I used some Simple Stories with a small touch of October Afternoon and Echo Park. My favorite part.. besides the popcorn of course, is the snowflake with that big ‘ol wood button!
I was pretty amused with the fact that the boxwoods I made from SVG Cuts 3D Wintergreens Kit actually came out.. and what’s this?… Those shiny red things.. “Oooohhhh.. shiiiiiiny” lol. I used my Epiphany Crafts shape tool (round 14) for some ‘berries’.
Yes.. to YOU!….. I am so nice, right?
Just don’t be mad if the mug is empty when you get it.
In all honesty, I’m actually not big on popcorn… and this set still looks exactly like the photos, popcorn and all. No crumbs on my face to wipe off.. etc. I am such a fibber.. waaah. Lying to my blog readers for their entertainment. *hangs head* Although, were you really THAT entertained at the thought of me eating popcorn?..
Maybe if you have a unshowered chick eating popcorn at her craft table fetish or something. Weird.
Anyhow, if ya want to make one for yourself you’ll need these SVG Cuts kits. Even if you don’t wanna make this super cool mug, you still need these kits, so click on over and snag’em!

A little more kits than I normally would use, but sometime’s you just NEED something from another kit to make it look just right. For example, I used just the little pitcher handle from the Home for the Holidays kit, that’s it.. But the mug would not be the same without it!
