Hi all and thank you for joining me today!
Special thanks to the gracious and generous Mary Fish for sharing her blog and allowing me to show you a quick and easy tutorial to hold your mini coffee cups.
You've seen these little guys all over Pinterest and crafting blogs. The cups and lids can be purchased at www.webstaurantstore.com. Gather your friends, pool your resources and order in bulk! To cover your cup there are templates out there for you to copy, but I found it easiest to dismantle one of the cups and make a pattern from that. I did use DSP from my paper stacks and found that there was a small spot that wasn't covered due to the measurement of the paper stack.
I simply used the leftover scrap to cut a 1/4" wide piece of matching DSP, adhered it over the seam using my Tombow glue and trimmed it to match the length of the wrapper.
Your first step is to pull out your Stampin' Trimmer and your card stock of choice. You will need 2 pieces of 2" x 7 1/2" CS. When cutting card stock for use with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, I like to line it up just to the inside of the 2" mark. The CS will slip easily into the punch and you'll have no need for a 2nd cut.
The extended arm on the Stampin' Trimmer includes measurements up to 14 1/2" and is designed to provide stability when cutting. It's not only a cutting tool, but also includes a scoring blade.
This is a definite must have tool for every stamper!
Your next step is to pull out your Simply Scored Tool. You'll score both pieces at
2 1/8", 4 3/4" and 6"
Using your Scalloped Tag Topper punch, slide the end of CS that has the smaller of the two squares into the punch
Punch both pieces.
Once your pieces are punched, fold on the score lines so your pieces look like this.
Add adhesive of choice, I used snail here, to the un-punched end of one of the pieces of CS.
Adhere the two pieces together. It's as simple as that!!
Now all that's left to do is to embellish your project and your imagination is your only limit! You can see in the photo below that I embossed some of the holders.
I did add a small spot of snail right under the opening for the ribbon to adhere the tag tops together to better secure the cup.
I filled the cups with Hershey kisses and some of the them with Coffee Nips.
These were a big hit at my vendor event last week. They make a great little gift that is fast, easy and pretty darn cute if I have to say so myself!
So, what do you think? Please leave a comment at the end of this post. I'll look forward to answering your questions and reading your comments.
Thanks so much for stopping and until next time, take gentle care,
