CCT ~ Hidden Treasure

Hidden treasure
Love the theme on CCT this week! I have seen some fantastic cards already today! I am way behind with my posting today as it is already evening in the UK! I blame it on this time difference mallarkey! Of course I did have a browse around a lot of shops this morning so that might have something to do with it too!

I spotted this project on Michelle Wooderson's blog the other day and knew it would be the perfect gift for a friend who has helped me out here! It was so quick to put together too!
I used rub-ons for the front of the mug (this means it has to be handwashed)!
My proper crafty stash hasn't arrived yet so I still have no die cutters or punches so I borrowed my son's compass and drew 3 circles and hand cut them. Then I roughed up the edges to disguise the imperfections!
I used my rub-on lollipop stick and covered it with paper! Luckily, I have my embossing tool so can still use my rub-ons!
I had this SU hodgepodge hardware in my essentials box luckily!
The papers are Basic Grey 'June Bug' and Cosmo Cricket
My hidden treasure inside the mug!
