K-Cup Gift Box

I've been in a serious funk lately.  I've made some incredibly ugly cards, some of which have wound up in the trash and unfortunately wasted a lot of paper.  I had these grandiose ideals about some beautiful cards and they just didn't pan out the way I had intended. 

My local Publix Grocery Store sometimes has K-Cups on their clearance rack for only $1.00 a box! Needless to say I will buy them all!  The last time I picked up 10 boxes.  They vary from the Publix brand (which is very good), Starbucks, New England Coffee, McDonalds, and many more.  I keep half and give the other half to my sister.

Speaking of my sister, who just happens to be a I decided to make a teacher appreciation gift with my haul of K-Cups.  I scoured the internet to try and find one I liked, so I settled on this one as my inspiration.

Using my Coluzzle and my Scor-Pal I constructed the box.  It holds 4 K-Cups.  Then I used my Cricut to make the coffee cups.  They are embellished with a few paper punches, a crimper and some apple brads.

The tag was stamped and then attached with a homemade button and some baker's twine.

Inside the box, I made a little chalkboard and stamped the sentiment.  Then I die cut teacher out of some glitter card stock and finished it off with a paper punched apple.

I thought the coffee holder needed a little jazzing up, so I added a die cut apple.
