Club Scrap Blog Hop: Celebrate with coffee and chocolate!

Yes, this is a special post for the
It is a celebration for kit #200!
I am sure you came over here from 
and her wonderful art with this special
Celebrate pizza box with it's wonderful papers,
embellishments, stencil and rubber stamps.
If you loose your way,you can always go back 
to the Club Scrap blog.
So I thought it would be the best way to celebrate
with Coffee and Cocolate!
As I am already a member of Club Scrap since 2003 and
I have seen and used many wonderful kits since then,
I had missed getting the Mocha Java kit.
So I kept begging Tricia for a new coffee kit. And many
coffee cards and pages later there was the Mocha Java remix
kit and I have used it all up. So new requests and just this month
the Coffee Break kit is here. That is how  this idea popped
into my head! You all now me as a coffee addict.
I had seen this coffee cup around,but never tried it
and so with a great video tutorial and my envelope
punch board I went to work. Here is the tutorial:

The instructions are very easy to follow.

The result is this cup.
Inside the cup you can also add some
sweets, or other present.

The sentiment is from Celebrate and the spoon is from
the Mocha Java UM stamps.

Inside the cup I made this tag.
It is a picture from my first Retreat in 2007
that I made when Tricia was having a cup of coffee.
The cup on the bottle cap is a stamp from the new
Coffee Break kit.

This is the background I created with 
stamps and stencil. Most of it is now covered,
a shame, so I  may do it again and make a card.

And now for the chocolate bags.
Also great for Valentine!!
In the left bag I added a window,so you can see the
coffee bean chocolatesthat are inside. In the right
bag there are chocolate hearts for Valentine's Day.

To make this bag you need:
a 12x12 inch cardstock
envelope punch board
Start with punching at 1,5 inch and score.

Turn your paper and punch at 3 inch and score.
Turn and punch and score at 1,5 inch and
turn and punch and score at 3 again.

Flip over your paper and start again with scoring at 1,5 inch
and score and do the same as above all around.

This is how your paper looks when finished.

Now for the cutting. The larger part is the front and the
vack of the box. Cut allong the lines until the crossing.

Alonf the smaller side you leave a flap for 
the double sided tape.
Put the tape on the front sideof the flap.

Glue everything together.

Three flaps will be folded inside the bag
and the one that is left will be folded over the front
and used to close the bag.
Try to fold the sides like this with
your fingers.

Now the box is ready for decorating.
Make holes through the flap and the  bag
to pull a ribbon through.

Here the Valentine box.

As you can see I had a lot of fun playing with my
Celebrate papers and stamps.
For more celebrations and project ideas go to 
and have lots of fun!
(hope will share more coffee in the future xx)

Thanks Clu Scrap for all your wonderful kits!

Have a creative day!
