Blog post 13 out of the 20 consecutive posts this month to celebrate my 20 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! Seems appropriate that post 13 is a Halloween themed project!! This adorable little tote holds a Carmel Apple Cider K Cup and is decorated with the Merry Cafe stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. This set coordinates with the Coffee Cup Framelit Dies that are in the main catalog. Video tutorial (and photo tutorial) below!
The backside of the tote is even cuter then the front! I used the Spooky Night paper - one pattern of the paper coordinates with the new Cat Punch! Just punch the cat out of the preprinted cats on the paper and add it to your project! The witches hat is on another pattern in the pack- I cut it out with my paper snips.
Here is a peek at the K cup hiding inside!
I used some fun new products from the Holiday Catalog to embellish my tote. Including the new Black Vintage Crochet Trim (SO spooky looking on a project!) and the new Black Rhinestones!
A close up!
I even added a Black Rhinestone to the center of the hat!
The video tutorial.
Start with a piece of designer paper that is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Place Tear & Tape across the entire top and bottom edges.
Two strips of card stock 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Attach the strips to the Tear & Tape and then curl the entire piece gently with the bone folder.
Place a piece of Tear & Tape on one end of the back side of the paper.
For the bottom of the tote cut a piece of card stock 3" x 4" and score it at 3/4" on every side.
Make cut up to the intersecting score line in the areas shown - cut out a "wedge" to make the assembly of the box easier.
Assemble with glue dots.
Wrap Tear & Tape around the entire box bottom - staying fairly close to the bottom edge of the box.
Peel off the Tear & Tape backing on the box bottom. Then remove the backing on the tape on the designer paper end. Starting with the opposite end (the end that does not have Tear & Tape), start adhering the paper to the box bottom.
Keep gently adhering it all the way around the box. The punched out cat helps hide this seam at the back of the box.
A HUGE thank you to Stampin' Up! demonstrator Raquelle Clifton (The Lady and Her Stamps) for designing this adorable project. You can see her cute version with the Coffee Break paper here. Also thank you to Sue Dyas for sharing the project with me!
