Starbucks – Northshore Illinois Style

Starbucks Coffee - Northshore Illinois Style

Oh what things one can create with imagination!   In a pinch for a gift to give a special coffee lover?  Why not try altering a case of Starbucks coffee – it’s fun and quick and really makes a person feel special…

First think of a theme – you can use a Stampin’ Up! stampset to set the mood…

Next choose a color scheme to match the mood…  you can use a Simply Scrappin’ Kit by Stampin’ Up! to make matching colors a breeze…

Now put it together… using the starbucks box as your pattern.  For each corner of the box, cut the side 1/4″ longer and fold around the corner for a more seamless look.  Cover the 1/4″seam with the next side.  To make the handle a little more polished – use the large oval punch from Stampin’ Up! to punch out the handle before attaching on the box.  For added durability/ reduced cost – use craft glue to glue the paper to the box instead of mono adhesive tape.

Voila – you have the perfect gift for your coffee luvin’ friends…

🙂 Power Idea:

Empty the bottles and fill with treats such as nuts, candies or for a teacher fill with fun paper clips, bandaides (we used curious george), chalk and sharpened pencils.  Attach the following poem to a card:

For My Teacher

Paper Clips for each time You Inspired Me,
Bandaides for the Overly Curious Georges in your Class,
Chalk for Creatively Drawing Ideas on the Chalk Board,
Sharpened Pencils for every time You Encouraged Me to Work Hard.
Have a great summer!
