Masculine Starbucks Coffee Cup

A quick masculine birthday gift: This project is from one of my very favorite company's: The SVG collection called Good Day at the Office Kit found here. The finished Coffee treat cup size: 7" tall x 3-3/4". Paper used is from DCWV Timeless Type Stack 12x12 Paper Pack - great paper to use for a guy.  One 12x12 sheet is all you need for the cup itself.  The solid color card stock lid takes one 12x12 sheet, too

It is fun to make these personalized coffee cup and fill them with surprises.  The personalized portion of the project is a FREE SVG cut file from when they had Candace's birthday blog hop a couple years ago - unfortunately, this file is no longer available. The sleeve is removable  (from the Good Day at the Office Kit from  I "ungrouped" the original file using my Silhouette program, then added letters I needed for the personalizing - cool, eh? The Starbuck's logo is print and punched using a 2" EK Success punch.
 Here is the sleeve removed so the paper can be clearly seen:
 A closer look at the sleeve:
Contents inside: snacks and a toy Lamborghini car.  The car doors open and close. Front and back license plate was personalized using a printed in size 8 font.

A special gift for a special Baby Boy: this is a retired Stampin-Up Bitty Books which are a snap to decorate but serves a great purpose for 3" x 3" snapshots. Finished Album case size is 5" x 4-1/4" x 1-3/8".  The original project is chipboard which was painted with white paint.  Inside album is 4-4/8" x 3-3/4" x 1".

Small baby onesies are also cut using the Silhouette Baby Banner file (without the string across the top) - add foam squares to them. Popped up name with foam squares is cut using the Silhouette, too. Making the white card stock shadow was a snap with the Silhouette.
The fun part of this album cover is the spinning Baby Pacifier (a Silhouette Baby cut file).  Use Stampin-Up Word Window to punch the slot for the spinning. Two one cent pennies are used to allow spinning.
Spine: 1/8" wide white satin ribbon is wrapped, single knotted with boy themed charms. These charms can be found at a local craft store. To secure the knots and charms from coming loose, use Ranger's Glossy Accents.
