Today is the day teachers go back to school. It’s going to be a long day!!! I am not a coffee drinker; however, many of my coworkers are, including my assistant. I made this little welcome back gift for her.
I know she will get a kick out of this coffee cup sticky notepad. We have lists for everything (and then we lose the lists)! I found the sticky notepad at Walmart. The idea came from fellow demonstrator, Dawn Olchefske (DOstamping with Dawn).
The “coffee rings” print from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice to decorate my little gift. (If you saw the paper “coaster” my assistant uses for her coffee cup you would agree! LOL) Here’s a look at the other patterns.
I used Dawn’s measurements to cut the DSP then changed it up a bit to decorate mine. Cut a 3/4″ x 8″ strip of wood grain pattern DSP and adhere it to the center of 2″ x 8″ piece of “coffee rings” DSP. Wrap the DSP around the coffee cup sticky notepad and adhere together in the back. Next, I wrapped my ribbon around and tie a bow. The sentiment from Watercolor Wings is stamped in Early Espresso ink and cut out with a banner framelit. I used some Linen Thread to tie it to the ribbon. Quick & easy gift!
I cut a 7/8″ x 3 1/2″ piece of the coffee bean print DSP to line the R.S.V.P. pen These pens are easy to take apart. Just roll the DSP around the pen barrel and insert inside. Love how it makes a matching gift set!
If you didn’t want to give a pen you could always add a treat instead. I made another one and this time I added some coffee bean candy. I was so excited to see the treat tubes in the Holiday catalog (on page 53)! These were in a former Paper Pumpkin kit and were a huge hit!!! I bought several refill kits and filled them with all kinds of goodies for Halloween, birthdays, Christmas, etc. I can’t wait to start decorating and filling them again!
Which one do you prefer…matching pen or treat tube?
