Sweet Cups for My Craft Crop to Aid Refugees

This Friday and Saturday, I'm hosting a Craft Crop to raise funds to aid our sponsored Syrian refugee family. They have made a remarkable adjustment to Canada and their first year has been difficult for them. They have worked hard at learning English and adjusting to the new culture and facing homesickness, but they are doing well now and looking forward to a new life in their adopted country. I'm so proud of them. But the struggle is really just beginning, because they will be on their own financially next year and it will be very hard to make ends meet. The mom has never held a job before, but is now a widow with six kids so will somehow have to find employment that will help her pay rent, utilities, food and basics for her family. The older children will be helping with jobs of their own, I'm sure, but we wanted to raise more funds to give them a boost going into the next year.

As part of my Craft Crop, I wanted to give every participant a little treat each day and I thank Stampin' Up! for their great ideas for treat holders, especially in the current Occasions Catalogue! Did you know that these great Sweet Cups were available on page 15? They have a lid and you get 10 cups for $11.50. I made a template so I could cut Designer Series paper to dress them up.

And the Annual Catalogue has the Mini Gable Boxes in Silver and Lustrous White! These are beautiful all on their own but you can also dress them up a bit. I'm planning to use the Lustrous White but I haven't got them yet. They're due in on Tuesday. But I turned a Silver one inside out to come up with a design.

 Here's what I came up with:

And just because I haven't for awhile, here's Chad with one of the SAB reward options:
