Valentine Treat Cups

ValentineTreat Cups from Marty's Musings

(Keep reading for a giveaway at the end of this post. Thanks!)

Need a unique idea for Valentine’s Day this year? These Valentine treat cups are just the cutest and would make a great teacher or friend gift for one of my favorite holidays.

I discovered Expressions Vinyl.com when I designed and cut vinyl for our family gallery wall and my scrapbook room quote . The vinyl was terrific and the projects turned out beautifully.

I was excited to receive some products from the company for a Valentine’s project I was working on. Who knew I could get so revved up over a plastic tumbler?

Here’s what the website says about the product:

The 16oz. Bolero tumbler is double wall to keep your drinks cooler longer and is made of polypropelene. These tumblers feature a snap on lid and matching O-ring straw. The first thing you will notice about these tumblers is that they are made of a slightly more pliable material than their acrylic counterpart. The beauty of this is they are more friendly to circumstances such as being dropped making them more kid friendly.

I like that. Kid friendly. Which for me, really means adult friendly since I am constantly dropping things.

I used my Cricut for this project and cut out several different patterns in both black and white. I have used the company’s vinyl before and it is way easier to use than some craft store brands. I know. I tried them and they failed. And the price is definitely competitive.

The right vinyl makes the project so much easier. I used a different product on my Scrap Wood Christmas Tree and it was a bear.

I’m going to give these to my kids for Valentine’s Day filled with chocolate. They’ll love me.

Love this. Love my  Celestial Seasonings Southern Sweet Black Tea (and no, I didn’t get free samples of the tea. ~sigh~)

Love the price, too. Each tumbler is under $3 and can be ordered in bulk. I even made a cup for my sweetheart.

I think this would be a cute gift filled with chocolates and candy (or even K-cups for your favorite sweetie.)

    Hope the kids and even your sweetheart love their gifts. Those are a great idea. I have not really thought about what to get my kids. Guess I better get started.

  2. These are too cute. I love my tumbler for drinking cold water or iced tea, and these would make great gifts. Thanks for sharing the idea!

  3. Love this idea! I have been looking for a cute project to do for my kids for Valentines Day and I think I just found it! Thanks!!

  6. Ugh. Lots of typos in that last comment of mine. I’m blaming it on autocorrect.

  7. What a cool project. Thanks for sharing the product information. It’s nice to know that a product “will” work before investing in something that doesn’t. LOVE your stuff!

  16. I hope it’s me! I’ve got 20 teachers to provide gifts for since we don’t have a PTA yet. Working on that!

  17. This is a very nice project. Your family will love them! I have not worked with vinyl yet. I know…I’m a little behind on my times.

  18. I haven’t tried cutting vinyl with my cricut yet, but love this little project. Oh. So. Wish. we lived close enough to do projects together. :) Hoping for a Road Trip next summer, though, and you are definitely on the list of places to go and people to meet.

    Would love the gift certificate.

    • Hey, Laurel! Yes, come visit us! That would be some kind of a road trip. You amaze me how you just get in the car and go! I’m such a homebody and hate to drive. Cutting with the cricut and vinyl is easy if you know the write setting. This printout here saved me so much headache:https://www.box.com/shared/9xphigrapvfpsfe24xbz Print it out and laminate it and put it on the cricut and you’ll be set!

  19. Looks great! My mom had given me a Cricut last year since she wasn’t using it, but I didn’t use it for awhile and gave it to a friend of mine … I’m thinking this may have been a mistake … *le sigh*
    Your project came out so nice! I’d love to win some vinyl!! Then maybe I could borrow my friend’s Cricut for a little crafty project! LOL

  20. I would love to win. Thanks for sharing the cute idea!

  21. Awww, I need a treat cup! Thank you greatly for sharing at Homa Style.

  22. I love this! I want to do this for my husband for valentines! Thank you!

  23. I love your tumblers! How fun! See, this is why I need to invest in a Cricut! Thanks for sharing the idea and I have pinned it! I actually created a new board for “Cricut Projects.” You have me inspired! This project seems like something I can even manage! :) Yay! You may also count me in for the giveaway!

  26. I love these right back!! They are great. I bought a pink tumbler similar to these and I’m toying with how to make them special for my grown up girls for Valentine’s Day. I like this but I don’t own one of those machines so i think it can’t happen the way you did yours. I’d love to have you link this to my party What to Do Weekends, too. I’m already following you.
