What's Happening Thurs 3/25 - Recycle/Use of Cup Holder & Cups - Prize Giveaway

Welcome to What's Happening Thursday. I'm Melissa, nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee", an independent Close To My Heart CTMH Consultant/Maker, and I want to share what's happening on Thursday.

Please check out my CTMH site and order wonderful items like what I use. Please let me know if you found this helpful. If you know of any corrections that need to be made please let me know.

 What's Happening Thurs 3/25:


1. Recycle/Use of Cup Holder & Cups

Had a Cup Holder that holds 4 cups from Starbucks and some extra unused cups (when ordering a Tea or Tea Latte the barista uses an extra cup to support the cup & tea bag(s). Got to thinking how to recycle/use the Cup Holder & extra cups. See in photo below what I did. I used the cups to hold items (i.e. tools, pens, markers, adhesive, etc.). In one holder spot I put my handy magnetic piece that I got as a freebie from Harbor Freight and I use all the time when cutting dies apart and to hold dies). The Cup Holder has a ridge also that you can prop up an item of your choice (in my case the After The Rain die set I ordered & rcvd from Kat Scrappiness that I'll be playing with today). 

Show me your recycle /use of any Cup Holder and or any Cups repurposed by emailing (email is on my blog sidebar) me a photo and I'll draw a name for a prize giveaway. Please email photo & comment on blog post also. Due date Wed 3/31 12 noon CT.

  1. Recycled cups make good holders on the crafting table - nice job!

  2. Cute idea and nice way to keep everything in one safe spot!

  3. I like the holder idea with your cups and such inside. I do not have a holder - but I had a coffee Dixi Cup - in which I placed some paper dolls inside as well as some MFT stamp and die cut images of PI - one is a coffee gal-- this will be very useful to have them in plain sight - as I have a tendency to forget to use up what I previously purchased - thanks for the idea - I send an email with my photo and dolls shown inside the cup - thanks for having the give-away!

  4. Great idea! The cups come in handy!
    I wanted one of those magnetic bowls too but haven't gotten back to a Harbor Freight lately!

  5. Great recycling and pretty holders.
