TCPTUES197 - Anything But a Card

This week's TCP Tuesday challenge is elementary - Anything But a Card!  Somehow in the midst of a cold, I came up with a little Easter decoration using The Cat's Pajamas - A Beary Good Year.  I don't have any egg dye so this is just a normal egg, but I'm picturing this little cup being used to hold a dyed easter egg (perhaps at each table spot for Easter dinner?) or a Cadbury egg treat. 

The first step was to take a 3 oz bathroom cut and cut the top half off - enough to hold the egg in place, but too much cup to decorate.   I then used TCP - Grass Cut-Ups die to cut two layers of grass to wrap around the cup.

Using several eggs from A Beary Good Year, I decorated the grass all around the cup.

Including an egg underneath whatever you fill the cup with.

Lastly, I cut out the bear and colored him (all coloring done with Bic Mark-Its), gave him another egg to hold, and cut out the little Easter basket also included in the set.  I cut the basket handle off and replaced it with a little Brown Sugar Divine Twine, and both the bear and basket are adhered with foam pop dots.
