Quick - need to make some little gifts to have on hand but don't want the usual Candy Canes? How about these darling coffee singles? My friend went to a craft show and bought some of these. I saw the wrapping paper in the dollar bin at the supermarket, and I could not resist making a few of these to hand out.Read More »
Hand out to those deserving of a nice break from the holiday madness, or maybe in need of a little caffine to get them thru the madness :-) Regardless, I'm sure you can think of someone who would enjoy a cup!
|Sweet Treat - coffee single wrapped like a candy cane|
Candy cane pattern wrapping paper
Coffee Single (Via or Folgers brand)
I made my tag, you could easily use a regular gift tag.
The stamp set used is retired, but you can use the current you could use the current stamp sets:
Morning Cup 116988 or Every Little Bit 117096 or even Itty Bitty Bits 117056
I stamped, then punched that out with the Circle punch; and mounted it onto a red Scallop punch piece.
Trim your wrapping paper to cover the coffee single, mine was about 2.75" x 7"
Wrap around coffee, and tape closed. Roll the bottom and tape, shake your coffee down to the bottom of one end, then roll the long end to form the curl of the "candy cane"
Punch hole in tag and tie onto middle with ribbon.
