It's not just a "Trophy Cup" It's so much more!

Hi Friends…Today is all about these little gems…the new Trophy Cups! You can use them in so many different ways…like this cute little photo holder.

Cover a 3/4" styrofoam ball with a little moss and then hot glue it in to the Trophy Cup. Paint a big number from the Alpha Parts Numeric with Distress Paint. Before the paint dries wipe off the excess paint. Adhere the number to the handle. Add an Index or Vial Labels to the front of the Trophy then adhere a Mirrored star over the label. The smaller labels are the  perfect size for the front of the Trophy.

 The little boy photo is from Photobooth, an electric collection of photos for cards, journals and mixed media projects. The Photobooth set comes with 90 different photos. Add the photo of your choice by attaching it to a Memo Pin and sticking the pin in the styrofoam. Another new product I just love is Small Talk. Small Talk is a sticker book with lots of phrases to add to your art. They come in black with white letters and white with black 
letters. Add a little Small Talk to the photo and don't forget to ink the edges with Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Next add a little Linen Ribbon bow and a paper flower. This paper flower was made from the new Alterations die Tiny Tattered Florals. 

Trophy Cups come in a three pack and retail for around $3.00 and that's practically free...right! The Trophy Cups can be altered in many ways. Using steel wool gives the trophies a matte finish, alcohol inks and distress paint add color and also work well together. 

This piece was done by Paula Cheney, she added the Trophy Cup to an assemblage and then tossed in a few vintage flowers for the finishing touch. So very sweet!

Cheiron Brandon made this fun patriotic Configurations Box and used the Trophy Cup as an award. 

And this is so brilliant Vicki Bouton attached her Trophy Cup with an Elastic Bands to the front of the Flip Frame. So…so…very brilliant!   

What will you make with your Trophy Cup??
