I am so excited to share with you my creation, a little goodie perfect for any time of the year!
Using the You Are Here coffee cup, I paper-pieced this adorable treat together, forming a box for a small goodie. (I had a similar pattern from years ago - not sure where I obtained it from - and decided to recreate it.)

Papers used: Cardstock - Kraft, Cranberry, White Daisy; Patterned Paper - from Beary Christmas.
Here is a view of its dimension. (It is slightly less than 3" tall.) The bag inside contains some chocolate - a perfect treat, don't you agree?! I love creating little gift items for people and hope you find inspiration from this.
  • Design space link for the coffee cup: (You have to own the cartridge to access the link.) 
  • Cut two of each piece for the front and back coffee cup.
Here is the image for cutting the base. A better image can be obtained by clicking here.
Cardstock measures 3" x 5 1/4". Along the 5 1/4" side, score at 1", 2 1/8", 3 1/8", and 5 3/8". On the 3" side, score at 1". Get a solid crease on each score line. Cut on the red lines. Form a box, overlapping the first and last panel. Form the box bottom. Add the coffee mugs on the front and bag. Fill with a tasty treat.

I love comments on my blog. Consider leaving one and then please head over to Melinda's Blog to view her artwork creation using this Cricut Collection.

Happy hoppin'!
