Coffee Anyone ?

Today's fun project is these cute "Mugs" which hold some tasty chocolate treats.



For this  I used my Simply Scored Board, together with my Envelope Punch Board and some gorgeous Watermelon Wonder cardstock from the new range of "In Colors" (2015-17) and Lost Lagoon cardstock from the 2014-16 "In Colors".

The punching from the Envelope Punch Board along the bottom of the mugs gives them a nicely rounded shape around the base.

For the handles,  I used two  dies from my Oval Framelits. But as my accompanying video demonstrates - you can make an alternative handle.

The  *Mugs" in these photos were  finished in pretty cherry patterned paper from the current 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Stack  "Cherry on Top" and papers from the last Christmas season's Designer Series Paper (now retired).  I am waiting patiently to see what this year's Christmas Designer Series Papers are going to look like!!

For the Mug I demonstrate in the video I used the Merry Everything stamp set and Note Tag Punch (available both as a bundle (stamp set and punch together) or individually.  



The cardstock has been doubled over, making the "Mug" is surprisingly sturdy.  

Its a fun way to package a little chocolate treat !!!

This is my video tutorial which provides you with full instructions and measurements etc :
