A little Coffee Gift

HI there. Sorry I have been a little MIA. Things have been a bit crazy with preparations for my DD's 1st Communion this coming weekend. I also experienced a case of the missing mojo last week...but I am back and coloring images and creating again. Yesterday I got 3 images colored, and ready to be made into cards! Well, today I wanted to share a quick little gift idea I made. Being teacher appreciation week, this is a fun idea to give to a teacher too. This project seriously took me like 3 minutes. So you could whip a whole bunch of these off in no time. Could also be used for shower favors, end of year gifts, or you can use them at Christmas time for office gifts...you get the idea...lol. Enough rambling...here is the project.
Sorry the photos are so fuzzy...the constant rain this past few days isn't giving me the sunlight I like for photos. Anyway...as you can see...super easy! I took a piece of mug PP, and wrapped it around the little bag of coffee. This coffee bag, I found in the Target $1 spot...they have them a couple times a year. I got this one a few months ago, and have been staring at it, and never did anything with it...lol. I used scor-tape to hold the PP on. Then I used the Smell the Coffee image from QKR Stampede. It is actually stamped onto the back of the mug PP. I trimmed it down, and rounded the corners. I added the little mug brad, and layered it onto the PP. That is it...super easy...I told you. You could also add a bow to the top, or other embellishments. I decided to just go simple for this one though. Well that is all...I am off to lunch duty at my girls' school, then hoping to get the other cards done tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
