Warm Winter Wishes

In my teens and 20s, I NEVER drank coffee. I couldn't stand the taste. Since I hit 30, I have to have it all of a sudden. Because I love it so much, I want to share the love. I am including these with the boys' teachers' gifts this year. I bought travel coffee mugs, planning to dress them up. While browsing the Target Dollar Spot a few months back (I know, it's a HUGE shock right? *wink* ) I came across felt coffee cozies with the terribly ugly flower on the front. I picked up a few, and this weekend, decided to make my own flowers for the front of them using Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies and PTI felt. I just snipped the ugly flower off and sewed my own on. Inside, I will put some shiny Christmas shred and a gift card to Starbucks.



Oh, here is the before picture... See how flat and unpretty? LOL!



Off to finish decorating my Christmas tree!! We got it on Sunday, but a Science Project took importance so now that that is finished, I am free to decorate :) Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty and so clever! That will be a welcomed gift for sure. Love the colors as combined too.

That would be so cozy to hold when the cup is all nice and warm!

Your gorgeous flower is a definite improvement- the cozies look WONDERFUL now.
I'm like you about the coffee- I'm 41 now, and up until a couple of years ago, I liked the smell, but couldn't stand the taste. Now if I don't get my morning cup, someone gets hurt...
