Remember I told you that I started with a tray that I purchased at Ross discount store for about four dollars. The clear glass cups were purchased for one dollar each, making the grand total of about ten dollars for the entire project. Now if you have to purchase paint and brushes, the cost would be more, but I have all of these supplies.
The patterns that I painted on the cups came from the heart patterns in my tray. I just copied some of the designs onto the cups. And you do not have to be perfect in your painting. I read one time that the Victorian quilters always made a mistake on purpose in each quilt they made, to give glory and honor to the Lord as only HE could make something perfect. That has long since my own motto.

Remember to bake on a tea towel lined cookie sheet when finished in a cold over heated to 350 degrees
for thirty minutes.
Now all I have to do is wait until my party on February 14, 2011 and pour steaming hot coffee into the mugs to serve with my cupcakes, strawberries and chocolate fondue. Yum.....I just adore Valentine's Day!!
