Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

coffe 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!)

Here’s what I made!photo 2
It started out as a pretty bad gift

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!!)
photo 3
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.

    I’m afraid i enjoy a Milicano at home but love the latte from Cafe Nero. You have done an amazing job with the very cute glass tubes and with the colours and redesign of the repackaging. Huge congratulations, I’d buy your new brand 🙂 xxx

I am doing well, but just super busy, so not much creating going on (except in my head)– hoping to break the trend this month! I hope your holidays are going well– how is the coffee business?? I love your goodies but please don’t include me– I’ve enough feathers and just wanted to stop by after so long!! Love your creation as always!! I have the image of that Thanks card you did for PC &S on my desktop!! xo
