Time for Coffee ...

You know when you have an idea in your head but it does not seem to come together, well this is what happened to me recently.  I purchased a box of Robert Timms Coffee Bags intending to design gift packaging to put them in.  Well I just never seemed to find the right stamps or design.  You can imagine my squeal when I opened the new Occasions Catalogue and found the Cups and Kettles Framelits dies and the stamp sets Timeless Textures and Balloon Celebrations.  Oh what bliss!

The gold embossing did not show up very well in the photo, but it looks great against the Early Espresso Cardstock.  I have put the measurements for the coffee folder at the end of this post, they are for the Robert Timms Coffee Bags available in Australia. I am not sure if they are the same size in the big wide world, so you may need to adjust your measurements to suit.  I cased the Occasions Catalogue on page 29 for the stamping, I just changed the tea cup for the coffee cup.

I made a matching 3"x 3" gift card, carrying on the wording from the coffee folder.  I also made a small envelope to fit the card, using the Envelope Punch Board

The inside of the card is very simple with the sentiment Happy Birthday.

Measurements for the Coffee Folder

Early Espresso Cardstock 12cm x 26cm
Gold Satin Ribbon 45cm
Gold Foil Sheet 8cm x 11.5cm (for front)
Crumb Cake Cardstock 7.5cm x 11cm (to be stamped for front)

Score the Early Espresso Cardstock on the 26cm edge at 4cm, 12.5cm, 13.5cm and 22cm.  Fold and burnish all score lines.

Add tape to the top and bottom (on the inside) of the 4cm flaps, when adhered down these create the pockets for the Coffee Bags on the inside of the folder.

Add the ribbon to the folder, and then do the stamping and adhere this piece to the Gold Foil Sheet mat and then adhere this to the front over the ribbon.

Thank you for visiting.
