As I write this post, I am most definitely not sick, but I know a lot of people are.  I have the perfect little pick-me-up project that you could easily make and give to someone who is a little under the weather.

It's a cute little get well soon mug!  It's super easy to make...
  • you need a 4x11 piece if cardstock
  • score at every inch (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.....)
  • then along the long side, you want to score at an inch
  • trim up the score lines along the bottom to the long score line you made
  • either stamp or add some DSP
  • using the oval framelits made a handle and glue it partly onto the last flap
  • glue the last flap on to the first flap creating a tube like shape
  • then you want to put the tube over a can (helps to make the shape) and glue the flaps down
  • embellish with a tag and fill with fun stuff!
I started with a Chocolate Chip piece of cardstock and embellished with some Tea for Two DSP.  My tag was made with the Two Tags die (wide tag cut shorter) and I stamped with the s{ick} stamp from the Word Play set.  To get all the colors on my stamped image, I used my Stampin' Write markers.  And to attach my tag I used some of the Ruffled Calypso Coral ribbon.  All the colors I used I pulled from colors in the DSP.

This little mug is perfect for so many different occasions.  I did one at Christmas for teacher gifts and included hot chocolate mix, peppermint sticks, marshmallows and a Tim Card.  You could also make a fun tea or coffee themed gift in one of these too.  Since this one is a get well soon mug, I put an assortment of comforting stuff for when someone is sick...tea, cup-a-soup, kleenex, sanitizing wipes.

There you have it...a super fun little gift that would brighten someone's day for sure!  All the products I used to make this fun little project are available in my online store.
