Save Some Bucks Mug - Starbucks at Home Joke


So, I just had to do this!  My sister-in-law loves Starbucks, but this past year they purchased a LOVELY home so I doubt she'll be making as many trips there - you know how it is ladies!  *LOL*

I ordered a nice quality mug that a photo can be inserted into to do this project.  Remember I ONLY did this for personal use and I did not sell it or profit from it in any way.  I took the Starbucks logo, took out the Star part and wrote in "Save Some" so now it says "Save Some Bucks Coffee"  *LOL*  C'mon - I thought it was funny!
 
 

I printed that out and cut around it.  Then I made instructions to go along with it.  The most important part of these instructions is... ADD SUGAR :)  I cut out a piece of white cardstock the right size to fit the mug and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots.  I attached my printed pieces to this and slipped it in the mug.
 
I made a charm using a hero arts stamp of a coffee and a piece of Bright White Shrinky Dink.  I attached this with some green embroidery thread, and WAH LAH!
