I've channeled my inner barista just in time for Valentine's Day





And what where they made from?








Yep I'm at it again- Toilet paper rolls- Boy does my obsession run deep,hehe



They are made the same way as: My Recipe For Zero Calorie Hot Cocoa- tutorial included
located Here;  

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418215.0

instead of adding marshmallows I allowed the coffee to dry-then using an equal mixture of white glue and white acrylic paint  I created my cream design- A toothpick was used to draw with this paint mixture to give me more control.
The note or photo holder was created by bending an 8" length of 18 gauge wire into a heart Shape and then inserted into the coffee disk, I weighted the coffee cup with river rocks to prevent it from tipping over.

for the candy filled cup omit the "shelf and the coffee", paint the inside when dried fill with wrapped candy

Happy Crafting!
