Nuts about these coffee cups



This is the second Make & Take project from my launch party at the weekend. We made three projects, all using the new In Colors; the third project was a bookmark showcasing all five colours, which people can keep in their catalogues. 

I love these cute little coffee cups and I think the ladies did, too. We filled them with monkey nuts to make a fun little gift or party favour. 



They’re really simple to cover - you simply remove the ridged kraft cover and use it as a template to cut the DSP. The cups came from eBay - search for “paper coffee cups 4oz” and remember to order lids as they are separately. 

The outer is made from a 2" strip of Hello Honey cardstock, cut from a sheet of 12"x12". Score at 5" from each end before cutting both ends with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. The base is covered with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, with the edges fringed to represent grass. 

I know I shouldn't say it myself, but I LOVE this project!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
