“Coffee Cup Making Kit” that featured a thin marker and some of these…
2) Take cups home, and tryout your new French roast coffee and chocolate-covered Biscotti which happened to find its way into your cart at Dollar Tree.
3) Stick chosen letters onto cup. Get a little aggravated that the sticker package you bought doesn’t contain numbers. Call Martha Stewart a “wirty-dord.”
4) Eat another biscotti.
5) Decide that you can wing it with the numbers.
6) Using a very tiny tip Sharpie, trace around the sticker.
7) Wipe biscotti chocolate off side of cup.
8) Remove sticker carefully, then color in the letters.
9) Practice the numbers nine times on a piece of paper before feeling comfortable about writing it on the cup.
10) Feel remorse for drinking second cup of French Roast and wishing you had a steadier hand.
11) Freehand the number
once twice until you are satisfied with the look.
12) Place in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Enjoy your baked cups.
Yep, that is exactly how the instructions would read.
I just know the Sharpie Marker Makers knew we Bloggers and DIY’ers would find random uses for their markers, so I am sure that is why they also created pretty, metallic colors.
I am 100% sure they knew I would want to write “Autumn Blessings” on the tops of more Dollar Tree cups.
Or, that I would want to take
cheap inexpensive, plain candles –
– and write a quote about Autumn by Emily Bronte to create script candles.
So, while I have nooooo earthly idea why they named this versatile little writing tool a “Sharpie”-
I am so happy they not name it a “Dull-ie” because
we would have missed out on so many cute projects. Don’tcha think?
