Following is a fun Patriotic Berry Cups tutorial and guest
post by Carolyn at homework… enjoy!!
Summer is here and that means plenty of outdoor gatherings with friends and family.
These berry cups are a quick and easy way to add a patriotic touch to your table or as a take-along to a friend’s house.
Patriotic Berry Cups
This patriotic line from American Crafts has all the little touches to jazz up your summer celebration. For the cups, I used a strip of scrapbook paper to create a collar or roll for the plastic cup to sit in.
Store the berries in the fridge and when you’re ready to set them out, just plop them into the premade paper rolls. A scalloped punch created the perfect size circle to cover the lid. Chipboard buttons and self stick expressions keep the theme going.
I like using non-breakable serving pieces and dishes in the backyard and these little cups are going to be used a lot. Just change out the paper and embellishments for different occasions.
Thank you so much for having me over today Frugal Girls!
