Tip Jar makeover! Silhouette to the rescue!

Ok…what wrong with this picture? Do you see it? A Tip jar made out of a paper cup!!! That’s what’s wrong! Now, I understand that a 19 year old boy is probably the last person to whip out something magical when asked to come up with  Tip Jar so I’ll cut him a little slack but I couldn’t let my dear friends over at
The Chocolate have a paper cup sitting on the counter of their beautiful store for much longer!
Enter my Silhouette Machine:
This little makeover was only going to take me 8 minutes and a tiny amount of the Silhouette premium vinyl! These shapes were both two of the free shapes that came with my Silhouette!
I cut and peeled and masked the design. All super simple!
Two mason jars later I’m happy to say that we had a simple solution for the paper cut FAIL!
Much better right!
Ahhhh! Even the Red Velvet Cake approves! So, moral of the story? Paper cups are meant for drinking and Silhouette  Machines are meant to save the day one Tip Jar at a time!
Hummm….do you think if I put a Tip Jar in my kitchen I’d score some cash for my awesomeness?
Yeah your right! Probably not!

    tip jar turned out great! I am thinking of one for myself & putting it on the dinner table-do you think I would get any tips? :) (besides cooking tips from my kids like "less veggies, more cookies".

    I was wondering if you scored any of that scrumptious red velvet cake!

      No red velvet for me!I’m addicted to their Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate chip cookies and Lemon Curd cupcakes! Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of THE CHOCOLATES treats!

    Wow, that looks a million times better! It looks so much nicer and classier than a paper cup. Nice work!
