The Daily Grind - Repurposed items

This adorable project (if I say so myself) is totally free! I call it The Daily Grind because the items are from Starbucks and saved from my daily fix of Decaf Mocha. Since I gave that up for Lent, I thought I would use some of the stuff.

The stems are the drink stoppers, the pot is made from the inside of the sleeve and the tulips are made from the part you would throw when you cut the 2nd flower from Mothers Day Bouquet Cartridge. The leaves are from the same cartridge and I covered it with Glossy Accents so it would match the plastic stems. I have it standing up using an old acrylic business card holder that I had in my "can't part with" stash.

It is going to look cute on my desk at work.
