Something I did learn during the visit, that Wales has the most Castles per capita anywhere in the world!
You can't go many miles without coming across one LOL.
Anyhow, enough of all that! here's my offering today.
I am taking part in a progressive challenge and this little fellow was given to use for it. I wanted to make something different, (my hubby says it's the full moon syndrome!) I have lots of boxes and other cut files, but I HAD to do something different, so went looking for a cup to take the digis we had to play with.
I saw this HERE, the only thing was, it didn't have an SVG for me to play with, so I had a go at copying the shape in PS and then placed it into the Cricut to cut it. I succeeded after a quite few hours of playing and cutting and redoing, you know what I mean.
I cut the shape out on white copy paper, just as well as it was HUGE, (I hadn't sized it as you can see.) I resized it, it still holds a heck of a lot of choccies or chocolate drink, I expect I will make it smaller again, at the moment it's 12cm wide and 71/2 cm high (approx 5inches x 3.1/4 inches) the size is just the cup shape. Instead of a scalloped edge I laid maple leaves, (from PS shapes,) around the top which I also had to make to fit. I cut 2 cup handles (derived from an arrow PS shape) placed them back to back to strengthen them, then glued all together.
I added the cute chipmunk, which I printed twice one reversed, changing the colours of his outfit to match the DP, (but leaving his face and body the original coloured image) and the background from the original and glued them together, fussy cut and stuck him on top, and made a tag with the other digi and the sentiment included. I held it in place with grey ribbon (from a jumper). Added glitter to the leaves and on the cups.
Congratulations if you got through all that and hope you think it was worth it.
