~Ornament Treat Cup ~

Howdy Crafters- 
Oh my goodness, I am head over heels loving this SVG cut by Regina Easter at the Cutting Cafe. It does take a littler more time to get everything cut out and assembled, but I am saying "It is worth the time!"

I personalized my Ornament Treat Cup with the custom name stamps I ordered from Regina this year. Ben is my son, Michelle is my DIL, Taylor is my first born grandchild [age 18], Sydney is my step-grand-daughter [age 15], Walker is my second born grandson [age 17], and Carson [ age 6] is the third born grandson.

The treat cup portion will holds several Peppermint candies [I only had 2 Chocolate mint candies on hand but I plan to get some more candies to add to the cup] ~ how about stuffing some money in one of these and giving as a gift?

This treat cup looks much better in person - the photo does not do it justice in my opinion.  There is still time before Christmas to get your Ornament Treat Cup project completed - Visit the Cutting Cafe Blog Tomorrow - and see what other wonderful projects the DT has created - and look for the opportunity to WIN 3 FREE SVG's of your choice - Whoot! Whoot! - blessings, Gail - Happy to be design for the Cutting Cafe.
