thermoplastic coolness

saw this tumbler at Starbucks. there were many designs but of course, i will always take the one i can customize. P395.00 each. not really cheap but not too bad. it is made of clear plastic and the bottom screws off. the paper inside comes off and serves as a template for something you can make yourself. i thought i'd give this to hubby for a birthday gift. he needs one to hold his coffee at the office, but being plastic, i hesitated. so i asked the cashier if it can hold hot drinks. and his response was that it was thermoplastic, it would keep hot drinks warm for 2 hours. cool!...or i should say, hot!...

it so happened i just scored some Chatterbox papers from Mia for cheapskate prices. she was unloading her overstuffed stash baskets and i was looking for cheap papers i can make into cards. those were perfect for this project. i barely had time to make something so thishad to be a quickie-hour-project. i needed something i could cut with out being stressed. the photos i used were in my excess-photo basket. cut-cut, glue, stick! voila! here's the finished project.

it's leakproof and totally washable. nice. hmmm...i think i'm gonna go get some more. one for myself and some to make more cool gifts with.
