Coffee and tea are popular subjects these days (and not just in papercrafting), so I was excited to see The Stamps of Life release dies that coordinate with their coffee themed stamp set. I put together a few projects using the new dies, and thought I'd share them with you!
First, I made a treat packet using a glassine envelope. I put chocolate covered espresso beans inside, folded down the opening of the envelope, and added a paper band around the bag to keep it closed. I used the coffee cup die to create a small gift card that I added to the front of the treat packet. The backside of the coffee cup shaped gift card is just slipped underneath the paper band that wraps around the bag of treats. The paper band holds the coffee cup card in place, and the card helps decorate the front of the treat bag. Yummy!! Yes, please!
I also made this card, using the negative shape of the coffee cup die. Using different patterned papers with the die made this card super easy to make! The coffee die set also comes with the itty bitty coffee cup die I used on the circle charm. I cut it out in chocolate brown paper and added a cute antique button to the center.
And speaking of coffee .... if you're a coffee drinker, what's your favorite brand and roast?
