Spellbinders Merry Mugs with Christmas Bakers Twine

Spellbinders Merry Mugs with Christmas Bakers Twine

Hello, Friends!  These cheery Spellbinders Merry Mugs with Bakers Twine Bows are my cup of Christmas tea!  With a big old dollop of sweet whipping cream, sparkling candy canes and even a bit of chocolate to dress them up, they are the sweetest Christmas treat that you could ask for!

Die cut poinsettia and foliage from the Petite Blossoms dies help to set the mood for this cup of good cheer.

TIP: Die cut the whipped cream, candy cane and marshmallows from glitter paper to add that extra bit of Christmas shine.  I also used glitter cardstock for the trees and some of the foliage.  It’s so  pretty to see in real life.

TIP: Bakers Twine comes in a wide range of colors and styles.  But Christmas Bakers Twine is the perfect pairing for these cute mugs.  Tuck it under die cut foliage to create a nice, full floral cluster.  Top off a little gift tag with a twine bow and sweetheart blossom to add just the right finishing touch.  Or, tie those candy canes together with a Bakers Twine bow.  It adds color and texture however you choose to use it!

A Peek Inside

Buffalo Plaid is such a great choice for Christmas creations.  The patterned papers you see here are from Echo Park’s whimsical Gnome for Christmas paper collection.  There are lots of classic Christmas patterns and images in addition to the gnomes.

TIP: Tuck a blank sentiment panel behind a flap page.  This simple interactive feature makes your card stand out above the crowd.  Use extra die cuts bits to embellish.

TIP: Thread pretty Christmas Bakers twine through the top of a tag.  Then add a cute mitten charm to create a sweet little Christmas bookmark.  It’s simple, but it works!

A holiday tea bag and honey sticks seem to belong in the pocket of this merry mug greeting card, don’t you think?

I can see myself using these cute mug dies in lots of different ways this season.  Who know?  Maybe I’ll be back soon with a tutorial that will share those ideas with you.

    I’m smiling at all the holiday joy I’m seeing on this card! LOVE using piled up cups as a focal point! Just spotted that cute marshmallow cluster…nice! I like your suggestion to add a simple flap to the inside. Ha! After seeing this post, I’ve turned on my Pandora Christmas shuffle…and checked my stash of packaged holiday teas, hot cocoa and spiced cider. Christmas paper collections are still in a storage area…a chore left for tomorrow. Is Christmas really this close?!?

    Thanks so much for this lovely Christmas card. My tea cup die is my favourite die and using beautiful Christmas card stock is a brilliant idea. I will definitely be using Christmas papers today to make some cards with my tea cup die. You always impress me with your creativity. Thank you, enjoy a wonderful day.
