Coffee Gift Set

Happy Friday!! Today I want to share a coffee gift set I made for a very close girlfriend of mine. I bought a template from My Time Made Easy for a coffee cup take out holder and to-go coffee cups. I fell in love the first time I saw these templates!! And I love they are available in svg format because I can cut them with my Cricut. I used the Free To Be Me 12x12 super paper pad from My Momenta for embellishing.

I was drawn to this peace sign patterned paper and the matching embossed peace sign cardstock. The bright fun colors are perfect for a birthday gift. The embossed cardstock looks great when sanded. I took my nail file to the paper and just sanded slightly.

I used my Cricut to cut all the flowers and added lots of buttons and fun baker's twine!

The coffee cups are made using the template and I snagged 2 lids from my local coffee shop to finish them off. I found some single serve coffee packs at Target and added those, plus some chocolate, to the cups. Some caramel coffee syrup and a Starbucks gift card round out the gift.

And I had to make a matching card! I paper pieced the cupcake using matching Momenta paper. And added a birthday vellum sparkly sentiment.

I really enjoyed making this gift. It took some time but it's so satisfying when the whole project comes together. I hope my girlfriend liked it! I will be making more of these for my coffee loving friends in the future!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a great Friday!
