Foam drink cozies with Cricut

I saved this idea a long time ago, wish I could find the blog I got it from, but basically just cut vinyl names and designs and burnished them on to foam drink cozies that I bought for next to nothing at the end of last summer.  I made one each for Jackie, Jeanette, and my 3 nieces.

OK, got lots of cards made at the Hillvue crop over the weekend.  These are just my originals, there are a ton more that I lifted from other people, LOL.  The patriotic cupcakes are just a Studio G stamp and leftover papers.  Ride Em Cowboy is cut at 3.2" from County Fair and face stamped with retro Peachy Keen faces, LOVE them.  Circus lion is cut at 5" from Wild Card 2.  The Patriotic Flag was another attempt at using up stuff.  The paper was from an old scrapbooking "page-a-day" calendar while the flag and star was from my collection of old Deluxe Cuts laser cuts I never used!  The vintage man and women are cut from Art Deco, I love these but wow, a lot of tiny details to cut.  The blue flower card I whipped up from leftovers from a scrapbook page from a class from who knows how long ago, Anna Griffin, probably CK convention pieces left over.  "Lovely" is made from DCWV Lady Couture stack and a couple of misc. die cuts, this is a GREAT paperpad for making cards, the images are awesome, very little work to do.  And last is surfer dude, how cool is he?  Cut at 5" the surfer is from H20 and the island is from Pack Your Bags.  This cute guy's face is also stamped with those retro faces from Peachy Keen.
