Baby, it’s cold outside! Amanda here today with a cute and easy gift packaging idea that will warm the hearts and hands of your friends and loved ones. Nothing works better at warming me up in the wintertime than a cup of tea or hot chocolate. No longer afraid of looking like a dork in winter, I am also a fan of wearing knit headbands, hats and gloves (sometimes all at the same time) to keep warm. But making and giving handmade items is just as fun. Embellished paper coffee cups are perfect for packaging up cozy, handmade gifts.
Inspired by the Pick-Me-Up paper from Pebbles’ Happy Day collection, I created coffee cup gift containers that can be used for giving small gifts and treats of all kinds. Heck, they’re even good for holding a warm drink.
Making the coffee wraps is easy as pie. Die cut the wraps and letters using your favorite electronic die cutter. Be sure to use your favorite, whimsical fonts. To make the labels even easier, die cut the letters from sticker paper.
Follow the curve of the die cut wrap as you apply your letters. Start by applying the middle letter near the middle of your wrap first. This will center the sentiment and make it appear straight when wrapped around the cup.
Have fun and stay warm!
