  1. The Gold cups I have seen lots of times on pinterest. I did some that were in different colors and used reinforcements for note book paper as my guides. I don’t think I baked them long enough because on set the color came off. Anyway thanks for sharing, the email this morning wouldn’t open up all the gift ideas but the first one.
