It is JustRite Christmas week at Stamper’s Dream! The whole team will be inspiring you all week long with fabulous gift giving and card making ideas! (sad to think its time for this already, but let’s get into the Christmas spirit, I can sing, if you need! :))
When I saw the cocoa mug stamp, my first thought was, that looks like my favorite mugs!! I have a set of 4 red Tracey Potter mugs that I adore. I don’t let anyone else use them. Seriously. For some reason they make my hot chocolate taste better. LOL! :)
So the idea that popped into my head was to make coasters. The red scalloped circle is adhered to a pre-cut piece of cork. Make your layers, take them to your local copy shop, have them laminated, then cut the shape from the laminate with the exact same die template, and viola! I would use a serious adhesive to attach the laminated paper to the cork, just to make them last longer.
My other tip is, grab holiday mugs at the end of the season. (because I am NOT giving away my favorite one! :)) Places like Target have the fancy sets and also the cutesy individual ones on clearance. They make perfect quick gifts. And you can put homemade hot chocolate, a gift card, a sleeve of golf balls, or even fun socks inside. Add a personalized tag made with JustRite Stampers and you have a thoughtful gift!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
