I have been busy finishing my "cup-dom" of christmas gifts. Let me explain cup-dom which comprised of a kingdom that spanned more than 100 cups.
So this year I discovered the joy of vinyl and decided to spread it all around, giving vinyl decorated cups. I special ordered chalkboard vinyl and used my silhouette to cut vinyl like a mad woman. Chalk is somewhat a rare commodity nowadays, being somewhat of a novel thing especially for children. This is as schools here now use whiteboards and eraseable markers unlike the yesteryears.
And this was the result (front and back):
The chalk was placed inside the chalk, giving it a tinkling sound as it clanged against the cups.
Giving a hundred of these meant:
- coming back from ikea with 3 big boxes stacked with the cups
- countless repetitive actions of remove the three stickers that were on the cup (though I do not understand why there is a need for THREE stickers), clean with nail polish remover, peel vinyl, center it, and smooth it out with a scraper.
While I have been doing that, I have been keeping up with my DD.
Here it is, looking nice and fat, the rings are about to burst, but I think it makes it look well-loved
Just some pages to share, will be back to share more of it in due time.
Hope that you are having a lovely christmas with all your loved ones.
