Once upon a time, I worked for Walt Disney Studios. It was pretty cool. For two years I went to work in a building with 20 foot tall dwarves on the facade.
One day not too long ago, in the enchanted land of LaLa, I found this set of princess cups at the dollar store...
I ate a poisoned apple, shed my mermaid tail because it was chafing a little, and made an enchanted bangle bracelet.
Wasn't it cute? It was super simple. You could do this with any favorite character cup in just a few snips.
1. trim away the top and bottom, and cut the bangle open. 2. make diagonal cuts to adjust for the flared cup shape. 3. round off the edges. 4. Tada!
Then, while waltzing with a Beast in a castle ballroom (okay, it was my husband Jeff, and we went to Starbucks), I had a new idea. I came home home and snipped individual princesses out of the second cup.
I waved my magical wand, and poof!
Here is Belle with her teapot.
Ariel with her fish tail.
And Snow with her poisoned apple.
(The apple is a chunk of coral that had just the perfect shape. Isn't it sweet?)
Suddenly, I pricked my finger on a beading needle and fell asleep. I slept for a long, long time, entwined in strange and twisted vines. (Dang! I need to stop falling asleep with a package of red licorice on my lap.)
Eventually I woke up and wrote this post.
