Lotta Latte Box

It's time for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Winter Blog Hop, so I made a gift box featuring a YNS die I won from their Summer hop!


The box is large, about 9 x 5 inches, and I created it in SCAL and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo. I took apart some actual coffee sleeves, inked the blank side, and glued them around each side. The snowflakes were made with a Martha Stewart punch,  and I added some betel nut pieces in the middle. I used a coffee bean stamp from a Stampin' Up! set to deocrate the sides. The blue tag was bought at Ikea years ago, and I backed it with a piece of a coffee sleeve. The words were die-cut from an adhesive paper; the "coffee" is a YNS die, and the "time" is made from a letter die from QuicKutz. I had tons of fun making this, almost as much fun as I had looking at all the gorgeous projects at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Winter Blog Hop!

Here's the present I put inside, a coffee travel mug that I painted for Mom at Hot Pots:

What a great box! It reminds me of a basket you'd get at the farmer's market with your berries in it... but much bigger and a lid and so pretty!
