Sweet Drink Lovies

I love things that are simple, direct, and warm. Which is why I love these sweet (and oober easy) stencils. With the holidays coming up you could use them for all the fun baked goods while you're at it. So here they are and the how to. You are going to love how easy they are. I found them at how about orange blog.
Step 1: Draw the design on a piece of paper
Step 2: Lay a plastic lid on top. (This one is from a deli container.) With an X-acto knife cut through the plastic, tracing along the design underneath. A tip: you'll never be able to cut the shapes out in one pass. Make many cuts on top of each other until you break through.

Step 3: Lay the stencil on top of your mug and sprinkle with cinnamon or cocoa. Dust the powder through a sieve or strainer to make a very fine layer.

Violia you're done and really happy about it too! I have thought about doing a few and putting them in a cute little container under a counter for quick access.
