Shot Glass

Not a card, I've either been too busy or not in the mood for paper-crafting lately. Because of the bad weather card club had to be cancelled the last few weeks, I think that affected my mojo a lot.

At a local gift shop I spotted these shot glasses.
The 'Happy Birthday' is lovely and sparkly in real life and if I can figure out how what they used to write on the glass I'll be making some similar ones myself.
I'm wondering if it's a glue gun with a glitter stick but I'll definitely be looking next time I'm at a craft shop, see if I can see something suitable.

Because of certain retail companies folding recently and not honouring gift vouchers it has really put me off giving them as gifts. I don't like giving cash as a rule but sometimes it's hard to know what to give instead.
So I decided to 'jazz-up' a cash gift and put it in the shot glass.

I wrapped the glass in coloured tissue and placed it in a tall cello card bag and tied some curly ribbon round. It looked so nice I forgot to take a photo ;)
