I have a cute little project to show you today and...
drum roll please... a mini tutorial!
I made this for our new challenge at Totally Papercrafts, where the lovely Sarah is hosting this week's theme of...
Not A Card
My favourite challenge and I can't wait to see what you come up with.
We have 2 fabulous sponsors for you this week
I bought this new drink a few weeks ago and, when my DD said she'd like to try it, I remembered I had some paper cups in the cupboard and came up with this little gift for her.
I also wanted to play with this lush Bo Bunny paper. This is out of stock at Crafty Emmas right now, but check out all her other gorgeous new papers - Prima, Fancy Pants, My Mind's Eye... don't hang around though, these lovelies go quickly!
This is really easy to make and if you give it a try I would love to know how you get on.
1 piece card for the box 270mm x 185mm
1 piece card for the cup holder insert 205mm x 122mm
1 piece card for the handle 168mm x 152mm2 paper cups (the base of my cups had a diameter of approx 55mm)
Box - score at 50mm on all sides.
Snip into corners as shown, tape or glue and fold up into box.
Tip - I use DS tape and run a pritt stick over it. This not only makes it stick better but also makes it slide a little,so it can be lined up perfectly.
Cup holder insert - score at 20mm all the way round.
Cut 2 circles for the cups - I used a 60mm diameter nestie die.
Snip into sides as shown, tape/glue and fold up as box.
Handle - cut an oval shape, in the top, for the handle - I used a small nestie.
And these are the pieces you should have.
I decorated the handle piece with my DP before putting it into the box and stapling them together at the bottom.
Then you can decorate as you like.
I placed the tea in small cello bags, inside the cups.
I'm already planning another one of these -
I'm thinking Christmas papers, hot chocolate, and marshmallows!!:-)
