Work Of Art Treat Cup

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  What you create should be determined by your needs, not your weaknesses. -Anna Held Audette
When was the last time you created something that you felt a need to create...even though you knew you weren't good at making the thing you wanted to create?  Whether it's drawing an animal, painting a face, trying to capture a scene during your travels - do you find that you shy away from putting pen to paper because you tell yourself, "I don't know how to draw a face," "I can't make an animal," "I have no idea how to draw something in perspective."  If this is the case, recognize that you are allowing your weaknesses to confine you and there is no way to turn your weaknesses into strengths if you don't give them a try!  So put that pen to paper!  Put paint on that brush!  Scribble out what the scene looks like to you.  With every step your weaknesses will begin to diminish and your courage will grow!
Today I am sharing a quick and easy treat cup that I made with a 8" x 8" piece of designer series paper and a bit of folding!  You might remember making these origami cups when you were younger - they were fun to drink from!  I added a bit of stamping using the Work of Art stamp set.  Such a simple way to let someone know they are special for Valentine's Day!
