Today I am showing you a great little coffee themed gift set featuring a card shaped like a Coffee Travel Cup and a Coffee Folder that pops open to reveal sachets of coffee inside.

You could add a stick or two of Biscotti, chocolate coated stirring sticks or squares and there is one sweet little treat to make for a teacher, friend or co-worker – it would also be perfect for Mother’s Day and for Teacher Appreciation gifts – the end of the school year is fast approaching…yikes!

Please read on for details on how to make both the card and the folder – and to find the link to my free printable tutorial and as always, this week’s blog candy…

Don’t you just LOVE that stamped image? SUPER CUTE!  It is from the Hostess set A Slice of Life that you can find on pg 4 of the Occasions Mini Catalog that features beautiful images – BUT it is only available for another 4 days because it retires on Saturday along with that Mini Catalog – so if you want it, be sure to place your order before then!

Firstly that Coffee Folder…

It is made using Early Espresso cardstock (it had to be really, didn’t it?!) and onto it I added a layer of Soft Suede that I textured using my Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

I trimmed it with a border that I made using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and added some cute Pearls.  My Belly Band is decorated using a piece of polka dotted paper from In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack – cute!

The white Belly Band slides off of that folder and the lid pops open to reveal three sachets of coffee along with a space to write a note – this folder is designed to hold Starbucks Via sachets that you can find in most grocery and big box stores…

And now onto that ADORABLE co-ordinating Coffee Travel Cup Card for which I give all credit to a wonderful stamping friend of mine – Deb Bryson – who mailed a card just like it to me this week…

We are in a monthly swap group at Stampin’ Addicts and when it arrived I just knew I had to use that design to create a card to go with my coffee folder which had been in the works for a few weeks…THANK YOU DEB!

Isn’t it cool?  My card base using Crumb Cake and I added a layer of that polka dotted paper to tie it into my Coffee Folder.

The coffee sleeve is created using Soft Suede cardstock that I ran through my Crimping Tool which you can find on pg 198 of the Catalog – LOVE the effect you can create with that tool…

I added that same stamped image and some cute Pearls to finish it off and just love how it turned out…

    Love the folder you made Sarah and how great that our minds were on the same track at the same time. I must add a disclaimer that I didn’t come up with the design for the travel cup card, but when I saw it, I knew immediately I had to do it for the swap. Too cute. Glad you liked it, and thrilled that it fit right into what you were planning!

    Love that image. It could be used for tea and hot chocolate themes too.

    Super cute coffee holder & card. The shaped card is so fun.

    What a great idea! And would make such a neat little gift for someone.
    May need to make one for the ladies in my Bible study group. They would love it!

    Once again, you’ve come up with such a great project!! I can’t thank you enough for all of your creative ideas that you so generously share with us! And I love the ala carte Tiny Teacup stamp – was in my first order when the new IBC came out last summer. (I snipped the “hello” sentiment off of it and mounted it on the side of the stamp, making it easier to use each separately.) And I’ll be ordering the Morning Cup set, soon. Thanks again!!

  • April 26, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    I just love love love this set!! I am a coffee junkie and Morning Cup was one of the first sets I got when the new catalog came out last summer. I sooooo have to make this set for my husband. He’s a coffee junkie too – and a big Starbucks fan!! Thanks for sharing your fabulous tutorials!

  • April 26, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    I love the card! I have so many friends that this would be great for! The coffee holder is great too! Thanks for all your inspiration!

    I love these, especially the coffee cup! It’s very trendy and reminds me of a Starbucks cup.

    Thanks for sharing!

    These are amazing!! I love the colors, I love your coloring, they are just too cute!!

  • April 26, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    This is so cute! You are right about them being great teacher appreciation gifts. I am not familiar with these little coffee sachets though. Are they little packs of instant coffee, or are they flavorings for a cup of coffee? Or perhaps they just smell yummy like fresh coffee…sorry to be so “not with it”…I don’t text message either!!!

  • April 27, 2011 at 3:54 am

    Really cute card and gift holder – great colour combo too. I can’t wait to have a go myself. Thanks for sharing. Sue

    this is such a great idea!!! I have seen some items like these in the stores……but nothing as cute as yours. Thanks for sharing the how to’s on this ….

  • April 27, 2011 at 6:35 am

    They are sachets of instant coffee – makes it real easy to get that Starbucks taste quickly and easily :)

  • April 27, 2011 at 7:51 am

    So cute and clever! I can almost smell the coffee.

  • April 27, 2011 at 8:21 am
