Super Easy and Quick Valentine's Day Gift

This is a super easy gift you can make last minute for a teacher, co-worker, friend, etc.
This cute coffee mug has been decorated using just Sharpie markers and has been filled with sweet goodies...ready to pass along to your Valentine! Check out how to quickly make this gift yourself!
Start with a plain white ceramic cup, a shape you want for your design (I used a sticker but you can use plain paper with a little glue stick added), and colored Sharpie markers.
Beginning at the edge of your sticker, add dots of one of your colors. Continue around the edge, filling in with dots. As you move out away from the sticker edge, change the color of your marker and make the dots a little farther apart.
After you've added plenty of dots, remove the sticker or paper cut out. Be sure to carefully remove any glue that may remain on the cup.

Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. This will make the Sharpie ink practically permanent.
Once the cup has cooled, fill with candy and it's ready for your Valentine! Check out the blog for more info!
