For my project I chose to create the coffee mug gift package.  Isn't it the cutest thing ever?!  I started by following the directions in the lastest Technique Junkie Newsletter.  The directions were so easy to follow and assembling the mug was super easy!  Full color photos and step-by-step instructions are included for every project.

I used Winter Wishes design paper from Echo Park (love that purple) on both the mug and the card and the Snowflake Flourish stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy. 
To create the center piece on the mug, I broke out the brand new Mini Snowflake Rosette die from Tim.  I first swiped Milled Lavendar across my cardstock and then stamped the snowflake in Seedless Preserves.  Once my snowflake was cut out, I assembled it and added it to the front of the mug.  Cute, right?
 
Ready for some more crafty fun?  Check out all of these amazing projects from members of all three design teams!  And don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the prize drawing!  Also, please be sure to visit Sweet 'n Sassy and Technique Junkie when you have a chance.  There's a bit more about each company listed at the end of today's post.  Enjoy!
