Books & Coffee

I am so lucky to be part of a craft class at our local library.  I thought it would be fun to make a decorative canvas highlighting our favorite drinks with books.  Everyone's canvas was a little different, but they all turned out so cute!  It is so interesting to present an artistic idea/sample along with materials and see what other people are inspired to make!  

I cut the Cricut Cuts and supplied those along with the ink and canvases.  Many bring their own markers, stamps, adhesives, tools, etc.  Everyone shares, laughs, and encourages!  It's a great time.  

So, this was the sample for class using the items listed below.
