As the teachers head back to school they are going to need their morning coffee. I was required to bring my own coffee pods to work, so a basket full of these would be the perfect gift to give the teachers at your school.
These projects were created for the Coffee Loving Cardmaker blog. I have been a guest designer throughout the summer and have truly enjoyed sharing all these coffee projects with their readers.
These boxes were easy to make using coffee pattern papers, a few coffee stamps, and tags. Each box was created from a 5″ x 10 piece of pattern paper that was scored and folded to create the box.
I shaded each of the stamped images with TriBlend markers and attached them to the front of the box atop some pattern circles. The colors of the mugs, straws, and sprinkles were chosen to match the papers I selected.
To hold the box closed, I punched a hole at the top with my favorite multi-tool and threaded some ribbon through. I like to tie off my ribbon with twine so that it is easier to open.
The twine also allowed me to attach each of the tags to the box. These were stamped using images from the stamp set and layered onto pattern paper.
These boxes were designed to hold coffee pods, but you could fill them with treats, sanitizer, or other smaller gifts.
In my video, I show you how each of these boxes is assembled so that you can make a few to give.
These went together really quickly and you can make a basketful of them for the teachers’ lounge or send one with your child on the first day of school. For those who have a cutting machine, I have an SVG of this box in my resources.
I hope this project inspired you to create a few little gift boxes of your own. If you have any questions about the project or the supplies used, please feel free to post those in the comments below.
