Halloween See-Thru Mug

I have been cleaning out stuff that I packed away in our Tuff Shed. I found this see-thru mug and instead of donating it like so much other stuff I saw it as an opportunity to use for crafting.

The piece placed inside the mug is removable so I can make other holiday themes.

Decided to give this a Bee Halloween theme.

Started with 2 pieces of craft felt that is of the stiff kind. Used Spellbinder Hexagon, I call it Honeycomb, die & yellow glitter cardstock. Used Lawn Fawn stamps. 

Stamped sentiment. Used 2 of my fav Stampin' Up punches to make sentiment tag.  

Stamped LF Bear wearing Bee costume, colored with Crayola pencil colors & Copic Primary markers, fussy cut out, attached to a Hexagon/Honeycomb, used Stickles on wings and allowed to dry.  

Recycled a Kraft paper bag from Chipolte, a fav food place of my daughter & I. Stamped the LF Trick or Treat bag onto the bag, fussy cut out & attached to a Hexagon/Honeycomb. Stamped LF Candy Corn, colored with Crayole pencil colors & Copic Primary markers, fussy cut out & attached to Hexagon/Honeycomb.
