Project: Thank You Pod!

Project 1

This covered pod makes a quick, easy, and ADORABLE Thank You gift for the coffee lovers in your life! 🙂

Check out the matching card here!

Notes:
To make the pod cover, start with a piece of Old Olive Cardstock measuring 2in x 8 1/2in. Next, use the Simply Scored board to score the length of the piece at 1 1/2, 3 1/4, 5 1/4, and 7in. (Fold and make crisp edges using your Bone Folder.)

Next, stamp the beans!
I’m left-handed, so I worked from the bottom up, but chose a path that works for you and stay consistent. First, I stamped a column from the bottom to the top (the entire length of the cardstock), and then I turned my block/stamp so that it was upside down, and stamped another column from the bottom to the top!

To make the small coffee cup:
Cut two small cups (one in Whisper White, and one in Tempting Turquoise) using the COFFEE CUPS Framelits (and your BIG SHOT Die Cutting Machine!) Next, use Paper Snips to cut the lid and the band from the Turquoise piece, and adhere them to the White piece using snail. Next, use snail again and adhere the cup to the band!

Stamp the sentiment:
Stamp the sentiment using the COFFEE CAFE Stamp Set, and again, cut using the coordinating Framelit from the COFFEE CUPS Set (and your BIG SHOT Machine.) Adhere the sentiment to the band with Stampin’ Dimentionals!

Finally!
The final step is to add Tear & Tape adhesive to one flap, wrap the cover around your pod, and seal it closed! (There is no need to secure your pod to the band with any adhesive–the wrap is tight enough to stay on without help!)

And…the final, FINAL step is to give the pod to someone special!

Happy Stampin’! 🙂
