I love the dollar tree, and they have some really neat grad stuff. So on a whim I was inspired to decorate a cup to crate a small keepsake item.
I grabbed a plain run of the mill cup that said "grad."
It was nothing very special, until I thought I could decorate it to make it something that is worth using and showing off. I decided to use some puffy paint to decorate the cup.
I worked my way around the cup making designs and caps. There were a few smear marks of where I tried to wipe off a few mistakes, but hopefully no one will inspect it that closely.
I only had two puffy paint colors at the time, something I will hopefully use for another project, so it is not very exciting, but special enough I think.
My brother is also graduating this week, and I am planning to make him a cup for his graduation part. I was lucky to find a 'grad' cup of his schools color (green), so I will decorate that this week, after buying other puffy paint colors.
Since this was first published I did make my brother his own cup. And I tried to leave it kind of plain so that it wouldn't be too girlie.
