October Cup Of the Month 2013

October Cup of the Month 2013

 We have slacked off over the past several months on a project that we had so much fun with.   So, we are going to start up again. 
This month features Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells Collection.  We have had so much fun with this line making all kinds of projects so it was fitting to use it for the cup of the month.  
I really struggled with taking pictures that did not have a glare, so if you have any hints, please share them.
If you want to make your own cup of the month, find a cup that allows you to put pictures inside.  I found mine at Starbucks.  The bottom comes off and inside was a black template.  Be careful when you remove this as it will be your working piece for all future projects.   I traced mine onto a thin piece of chipboard to preserve the template.
Here are the two templates.  Notice that little tag on the bottom, that is what is used to pull out the piece from inside of the cup.  Make sure you make one for the one that you will be putting inside.  You will need this to pull that back out again.
Now... I learned something.   You CANNOT layer much or put really thick items in, such as ribbon.  I really struggled to get mine back inside of the cup casing.  Maybe some have bigger innards, hopefully your does.
Here are a few more pictures:
Here you can see the ribbon and the laying.  Good idea but was tough getting inside the cup.

I tried to get a picture of the back that I fussy cut from the paper collection but that darn glare.  Oh well, we are learning.  :)

Well, that is my first attempt... Next month I hope to have a better project.   Play along and post your pictures to our Facebook page and lets have some fun with this.
