Cooking It Up #37 - I'm Hungry for a Sentimental Tag!

It's time for another recipe at Cooking It Up With Katie and this week we have one of one super regular sponsors...Robyn's Fetish

This weeks ingredients should help with a few Holiday cards and gifts!

Feature a Food or Beverage
Add a Tag or two
And finish it off with a Sentiment

If The Shoe Fits Blue
Daring Cardmakers - Topaz (my birth stone)
No Time To Stamp - Tags
Reasonable Ribbon - Winter with Blue, White and Silver
Thoughtful Thursdays - J is for...Jewels
Totally Stampalicious - I've Got The Blues
Thrilling Thursday - Out of The Box (try something different)
Crafty Purple Frog - Sparkle
Belli Challenge - Something Old (the paper), Something New (the image), Something Borrowed (the idea for the project), Something Blue (the color!)
Little Red Wagon - Something in 3's (made 3 of them, used 3 rhinestones on each, used 3 colors)

I chose to make a Hot Cocoa holder

Project Recipe:
Image - Hot Cocoa by Robyn's Fetish
Paper - Imagine That (Walmart)
Metallic Cardstock - American Crafts
Ribbons - Hobby Lobby
Medium - Copic Markers
Rhinestones - Michaels $1 spot
Paint - Puffy by Tulip
Button Brad - Making Memories
Sentiment - Printed

The whole concept of the holder is not mine, I found it on a favorite technique blog Cardz TV.
It is super simple to make and I'm making them as teachers gifts for the Holidays and they are very quick and easy.
I used Puffy Paint (heated up with a heat gun) as I love the texture it gives and it is so inexpensive and easy to find (mine was from Walmart!) and lasts so much longer than the "Snow Pens" that are in the Scrapbook stores!
I hope you've liked my project today and be sure to come along and play with us at Cooking It Up With Katie this week!
