Last week I was inspired by Project Tuesday. They had a wonderful tutorial on how to make a gift card holder from a coffee sleeve! That day I was at the grocery store and bought a small coffee. I saved my sleeve to try their challenge. But I never got around to it :(
Then I had a request from the baristas at one of the coffee shops where I sell my greeting cards. Could I make a special card for them to send to a former customer who moved away? They wanted it to be in a coffee theme.
I decided to use my sleeve to make the card. Here is what I did:
1. Tear sleeve open and place a scrap sheet of paper inside. Gently fold right side of sleeve closed to create a fold in the scrap paper. Repeat for left side.
2. Trim top and bottom of scrap paper to fit in envelope.
3. Fold a sheet of 8.5"x11" card stock in half. Use scrap paper template and trace. Cut out.
Here is the finished card (sort of).
Tomorrow I will take the card to the baristas, but I will replace my grocery store sleeve with one from their shop ;)
Really simple. Inspiring? Let me know. Right now I could use some coffee...my girls woke up at 4am this morning. Julia's teacher said she fell asleep at school. It's a good thing she's so cute or else I'd be mad at her :)
