Summer Hop Graphic

I did a little recycle gift packaging project to share and have two different offerings of blog candy.

One is the Sponsorship Prize and one is a standard Blog Candy.

Read further down to see them both and for details on how to enter to win each!

Well start with my project for today and show the prizes at the end.

Coffee3PM 480504

This is a recycled gas station coffee cup turned into fun gift packaging for a coffee loving friend.

I had also saved the sleeve, so I used that to trace my decorative paper band. Once cut out, it fit perfectly.

I adhered coffee themed twill to the top and bottom of the band, made a quick little gift tag and topped it off with a single flower.

I was done in a flash and I think it’s pretty cute!


Here’s the tag I made. I just cut it at the paper cutter – nothing fancy.


Here’s the flower on top. Easy peasy! We currently have these Prima flowers on closeout.


And what did I tuck inside the coffee cup as the gift?

Well, Coffee Bean Twill, of course. I think my crafty coffee loving friend will love her new twill!

We have a small Coffee Shop in our store. Check it out!
