Have a Cuppa Gifts

June 23, 2017

Sometimes all people need is a sit down, feet up and a nice cup of whatever takes their fancy and the world seems a better place again.



These cute little gifts are designed to make it easy to just do that, gift someone a cuppa. Whether it's tea, chocolate or coffee these cute boxes hold either a couple of tea bags (one traditional English breakfast tea the other a herbal blend) or instant coffee or hot choc mix. Each comes with an individual pack of 2 luxury cookies and the hot chocolate even comes with  a mini bag of marshmallows.


Made using Stampin' Up! supplies the packaging is gorgeous yet simple and so pretty.


For the tea pot I used a Very Vanilla cardstock base and stamped using a stamp from the Background Bits stamps set using Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum inks. For the tag I cut out two pieces from Very Vanilla and Berry Burst card stock and stamped using Berry Burst ink using a sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set. I finished off with a piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon. [Post Edit: I didn't use Berry Burst for the stamping I used Powder Pink! Whoops!]


For the hot choc mug I used Whisper White stamped with another image from the Background Bits stamps set this time choosing Calypso Coral as my ink colour and finishing off with a piece of Emerald Envy ruched ribbon for a contrast. I stamped a piece of whisper white using another stamp from the same stamp set and stamped the Thank You using the same stamp set again in Calypso Coral. I added a tiny rhinestone to the sentiment too just to add something extra.


For the coffee pot I used Whisper White again and stamped using Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist inks to give a zesty feel to this cute pot shaped gift box. This time I used Daisy Delight for my flower and leaf random stamping and Label Me Pretty stamp set with the Pretty Label punch and a 1.75 inch circle punch to create the sentiment. Finished off with this gorgeous Daffodil Delight stitched ribbon.


I kept the insides plain apart from stamping the card I used to make the box inserts which are super simple to do. You could leave the inside blank for writing too or you could decorate it as much as you want, the choice is yours and with Stampin' Up! the options are endless.


All products are below if you fancy getting your hands on them and the images I used were cut out using an old Cricut machine and were from an image set called Love You A Latte but you could easily fussy cut them using downloaded or hand drawn images or use any other cutting machine. I forgot to add it but all labels were layered together using dimensionals by Stampin' Up! which are now available in regular or mini sizes.


Have fun making them and if you do make them and share on social media be sure to #craftylittlethingsuk so I can see what you come up with.


If you fancy buying a few of these as teacher gifts, gifts to leave on a colleague's desk or to drop round to a new mum or stressed out friend or even to leave for staff on a hospital or care home desk to show your gratitude then they will be available to buy in my store which really is coming soon. They will be customisable as ever and I am working out some multi-buy discounts for you too so watch out for those.


Thanks as ever for dropping in and hopefully you are leaving inspired.
