Mini Coffee Cup Treat Holders

Another fun craft to make for gifts are the decorated mini coffee cups.  I got the cups at a local restaurant store and wrapped them with retired designer series paper.  You could make them for any occasion but since mine were for upcoming holiday craft fairs I used a holiday design.

To make it easier and a little nicer to package I found a template on how to make a holder.  Thanks to Stampin' Up! demonstrator Anne Burnham for the directions on how to make the holder.  Directions are below.

I filled each mini cup with a K Cup and I will be able to tell what flavor of K Cup is in each one by using the same pattern of Designer Series Paper for each flavor.  I like to do a variety of flavors, and this is an easy way to help me know what is inside each one.    You could also use candy, but since I am filling a coffee cup I thought adding some real coffee would be nice.  I have also seen this design where you could add a coffee gift card to the holder as well, and I will do that for personal gifts that I will be giving out.

To make the holder start with a piece of card stock that measures 2 1/2" x 11" and score on the long side at 1/2", 3", 3 1/2", and 6".  Fold on the score lines as shown in the second picture below, punch a 2" circle for the coffee cup to fit, and  bring the bottom piece up and attach it to the back of the base. I used Fast Fuse adhesive to adhere it.  I also used my retired corner rounder punch to round the top corners and put on some matching Washi Tape to dress it up a little more.

Finished Product!

I added some mints, put everything into a clear cello bag, and tied on my sentiment.
