Cup of Happiness

I haven't gotten much stamping done today. Well I didn't do any stamping today to be more precise. I have been organizing my space and making sure my shopping list for Virtual Stamping Weekend is complete. I'm sure it will look like a whirlwind hit in a few hours. If you are around you should come join in the fun at SCS. I always do.

I was challenged to use the Sale-A-Bration Rub Ons, as were all of the Control Freaks, so this is my challenge product. I didn't go the card route, but I'm sure I will do one sometime soon. Instead I decorated this little tea set that I found in the Target $ Spot. It was actually $2.50 but wouldn't this make a perfect Valentine's Day gift for co-workers or your children's teachers? I think so.

All I used for this project was the Love and Happiness Sale-A-Bration Rub Ons, a cellophane bag, Valentine's Day M&M's and a piece of Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon.

I know this will be asked, so I'll answer it now. I have never washed anything with Rub Ons, but I read on the Stampin' Up! forum on the Demonstrator website that other people have. But you really should hand wash them to be safe. I also read that there may be a product to seal the Rub Ons to the cup, but I haven't researched that end yet. If I find the answer I'll let you know.

Also when you place your Rub On on the cup, make sure you get it where you want it the first time because mine stuck almost immediately.

My Target sucks! LOL They didn't have anything even 1/2 as cool as that. No mailboxes either! That's what I get for living in the swamp. LOL
Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and smiles

Cute idea. I agree about make sure they are where you want them, for sure when it involves glass, because they stick really good!
