Drink Topper

Good Morning, Stampers!

Not only is it FRIDAY, but it is a 3-day Holiday Weekend! I know there will be lots of parties, BBQ's, etc., to celebrate the Memorial Holiday, so my project for today is a fun idea perfect for the occasion! Take a look:

It's a drink topper! Not only is it stylish, it keeps the nasty bugs out, too! You can make them in different styles, patterns and flowers so your guests will be able to identify their drinks - personalized and multi-functional!

1. Cut a circle at least 1" larger than the cup. (Here, I used the 3 1/2 " circle)
2. Emboss using the Square Lattace embossing folder.
3. Punch a scallop (2 3/4") from the Domestic Goddess DSP. Adhere to the circle.
4. Punch 5 flowers from the 5 petal flower punch. (Any flower will work.)
5. Line all of the flowers up & punch a small hole in the center.
6. Insert a shimmer brad in the center.
7. Twist the flower petals to off set & "pull-up" on the petals.
8. Punch 2 small ovals. Fold lengthwise.
9. Adhere the leaves to the backside of the flowers.
10. Adhere the flower to the circle using dimensionals.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Happy Stampin'!

Thank you for sharing this really cute idea. It would work for any kind of party and I think kids would really like it, too. Are there any instructions?
