one to go please!

Just a quick take away today! A Coffee to go with an insert to write your message on.

Card Recipe:
Cup is 4" x 9", folded in half to be 4.5" tall x 4" wide in Crumb Cake. After it's folded, cut the two sides in, starting about 1/2" from each side on the bottom and angling out to the top corners. Glue the two sides together just along the edges to make a pocket.

The inside of the cup slides open to reveal a message, or place to write one. This piece is about 3" wide by 5" tall,  the sides angled like the main cup in .. about a half inch from each side from the bottom. To make the lid, I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, 1" tall x 4 1/4" wide. I rounded the top two corners to look like a  lid and scored a line along the centre. 

For the wrap, I used a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock that was 2" tall by 4" wide and ran it through a paper crimper. A piece of polka-dotted ribbon in Baja Breeze added a splash of colour. I stamped a cup from the set Tea Shoppe, in the Summer Mini Catalogue, in Baja Breeze to compliment the ribbon on a circle of Very Vanilla layered onto a piece of Soft Suede Designer Label. 

Well, I hope you like it!
Happy Crafting
