Welcome to my part of Nicolette's Mom's Day Blog Hop. If you're following along the hop, you should have come here from Jamie's blog.
I had a different, more involved, project in mind when I started thinking about what I wanted to do for the hop, but ended up running out of time to finish it. So, these are my "back-up" projects.
The tea cup and coffee cup are both from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge. These were my first attempts and I can see where they need a little "adjusting," but turned out okay. They actually went together easier than I thought they would. I cut the tea cup at 11" which made a good sized cup. The biggest I could get the coffee cup to cut on the Expression was at 6" and it turned out pretty tiny. I was only able to fit four of the Lindt chocolates in it.

I used cardstock for the base and the paper on the outside of the box is from the Stampin' Up Nautical Expedition designer series. I used the "Its A Wrap...Occasions" stamp set to create wrappers around Hershey Nuggets. The stars are actually from a different stamp set. Again, the ribbon is from…
