Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
Hi! Today I’m joining in with lots of other girls to provide a little Christmas cheer by way of some coffee related inspiration! The crafting machine that is Amy Tsuruta (who’s extremely lovely too has organised the whole shebang and it looks like it will be totally inspiring!)
I removed everything- washed out the containers and saw that the left over packaging inside had potential!
So I copied the shape out- knowing I could use it to hold the newly decorated tubes in.
The problem was that without creating a design in my Silhouette, I couldn’t get my punch to line up in the cardstock (doesn’t reach that far) and my Crop-a-dile wouldn’t give big enough circles. So, I carefully trimmed off the sections that needed holes in, punched the holes and added the packaging back together with layers of washi tape (love that stuff!!)
Now I had a great little design that held the tubes but wouldn’t stay upright.
Rather than designing a new little box- I decided to adapt the original packaging. The issue was that this had a few scratches already. So, I cut it down to just the level of the black support and then got decorating; the fun bit!
For the design- I used a Hero Arts set called ‘Need Caffeine’ which, under the circumstances seemed perfect!
The papers are the ‘Blush Collection’ from Project Life with some lovely glitter paper & cardstock plus some coordinating seam binding.
Hero Arts along with a ton of ‘Super Sponsors’ are sponsoring the hop and offering a ton of prizes. To join in.. you just need to link up at Amy Tsuruta’s blog here and if you do so by Friday, you can be in with a chance to win some of the prizes.
