Tropical Coffee Sleeve

Hello,
Today is day 7 of the Coffee Lovers Hop.  It really has been so much fun hopping.  I always love seeing all the fun creations other crafters have made.

For  today's post I have made a fun tropical coffee sleeve.  For this I used the Layering Hibiscus Stamp Set from Hero Arts.  It is just so fun.   Layering stamps can be a little bit of a challenge if you have never used them, and each set is a little different, but once you get it down, your good to go.  Here is a pic.


Isn't it just so pretty.  I just love it.  My son saw this sitting on my craft desk and thought I had purchased it.  He was so surprised I made it.  To make it, just simply take a cardboard coffee sleeve apart and then trace it with some cardstock or paper.  For this one I used white paper.  Then I stamped it and using pop dots to adhere it to the cardboard sleeve.  I used glue dots to adhere the pieces together.  They worked very well.  I think it's best to let it sit for about 24 to 48 hours to let the glue dots adhere really well.   Then you can use it.  Here is a pic of it on my cup.


So fun huh!

Well, that's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by.
