Welcome to the monthly blog hop of
where we show you the kit of the month June
and this kit is called Pattern Play.
I hope you have arrived here from
and seen how she has played with her kit.
I was a little unlucky this month for my box
only arrived last Saturday, so I had to come
up with a quick project. As I also play in the
Summer Coffeelovers Blog Hop, it has to
be something coffee related. I guess some of you
know I can turn any kit into something coffee!
I made this coffee/card gift box.
For the box I used the Stationer's Box that Tricia made with
us at the Retreat in 2013. And for a period of one
month you can download the instructions here.
And there are even an instruction about
how to assemble the box:
In the original box there are only cards, but I noticed that
where there can be the little cards, it also holds 2 times
4 Nespresso cups and that was just perfect.
The box comes with a lid with a window.
After I followed all the instructions, I had the bottom and
the lid. I assembled the bottom and made the dividers.
For the lid I did some stamping for decoration, before
folding and glueing everything together. I used tone
of the pattern stamps from the kit. You find the stamps here.
Around the box I just the silver ribbon from the kit.
The tag is one of the cut apparts from this kit and
I decorated it with this cute coffee die using some
left over paper (red from stash). On the back you can
write a wish or stamp a sentiment.
Here a look at the inside. On the left the cups
and on the right there are 4 cards.
I took the cards out to show them to you.
Here are the cards. You see they are all coffee related.
For my cards I used dies from Tim Hotz.
The coffee cup to go is die cut out of the
patterned papers from the kit. The flower
is punched out and decorated with one of the cute
enameled dots that were also in the box.
Sentiment from the stampsheet.
Ok, so one card for the tea lovers too!
Ribbon from the kit.
Here I stamped on the cup with white ink.
I cut up one of the stamped sentiments
and made it fit my card. Enameled dots posing
as a little milk in the coffee.
Background embossed with coffee beans and
cut with a thinlit and now showing the
green of the card through. Some gesso
was added to the embossed part of the panel.
For this card I embossed the background
with a tim Holtz embossing folder and added
white gesso for a little more effect.
Cup is stamped with green ink and a decorative
pattern. Sentiment is also from the kit and tag
is made up out of a left over piece.
Here a little info about the Coffeelovers hop:
