Merry Café Christmas Cheer and a Happy New Year Single Coffee Cup

I know you all loved the mini coffee cups when we boxed them into 2 cup packages.   If you’d like those instructions, search “coffee” in the search bar top left corner of this site.
Here’s a idea for a single cup using the Merry Café set (this matches with the Coffee Break die set. 

The holder is 3 x 11, score at 4 ½, 7, 7 ¾, 10 ¼. Burnish your folds. I used Garden Green. Punch a 2” hole in the front  I usually punch a 2” circle out of a post it note and then use this as my template so my circle is centered.  Fold up the holder and adhere together.

Decorate the front of the cup holder with designer paper 2 ½ x 3 ½ (think about using a small pattern).  I used the Merry Mistletoe designer paper. 
Cut a piece of designer paper for behind the sleeve of the coffee cup.  It’s about 1 x 6 and it’s nice if you take the time to cut it in the curve of the cup.  Glue this one with liquid glue.
Stamp Christmas Cheer in Cherry Cobbler and the cut this out with the Coffee Break dies.  Attach this to the front of the cup with dimensionals.

Stamp the “and a happy new year” from the same Merry Café set on a ½ x 3 piece.  Put this on the very front also with dimensionals.

You can stamp a greeting and put it on the back.  You could (as I did), cut a piece ½ x 6 and wrap it around the top of the holder. This will act as a holder for a gift card.  I added a mini metallic green bow.

Stamp a Christmas tree (lots of sets have these – the Merry Mistletoe, the Watercolor Christmas) or anything that fits on a 1” circle piece.  Attach a 1 3/8” garden green circle and attach both to the lid. I like to put the hole (I’ll add a straw later) and line this up to the left.  I put my Christmas tree on top, with a star or rhinestone. 

Add some candy to the cup – nice for the receiver but also the weight of the candy holds it up well.

These cups come from    Sadly they only sell massive quantities, so if you are local and want to make one, just let me know and I’ll give you a mini coffee cup.   

Happy stamping, MaryKate
