Keurig Cup Holder Tutorial

Supply List:
2- 8 1/2x 11 pieces of  green cardstock
1-8 ½ x 11 pieces of burgundy cardstock
Carta Bella Christmas Day patterned paper
Spellbinder dies
Snowy’s Cup stamp by High Hopes
Cup of Cocoa stamp by High Hopes
Copic markers
Memento Tuxedo Black die ink
Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Sponge, ruler, pencil

I saw a box similar to this on Pinterest and when I saw the new Snowy’s Cup and Cup of Cocoa stamps I knew they would be perfect  for this project.   I am so happy with the way it turned out and I hope that you’ll give it a try!

Start with a standard 8 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock and draw the lines on it.
Starting from the left side measure across 2 ¼” and draw a line.  Repeat this 4 times.  This will create four 2 ¼” sections and the last section will be 2”.  Then draw two lines each 2” from each side which leaves a 4 ½” section in the center.  In the 4th section, trace your K cups

Cut on the dotted lines and fold on the solid lines.  Use a circle cutter, die cut, or scissors to cut out the two circles.  Cut the circles out slightly smaller than the traced circles  or else your K cups will fall in.

Use your favorite adhesive to fold up and secure the box.

Cut out a 4 ½”  x 6 ¾” panel from the green cardstock and adhere to the box as shown.

Ad here patterned papers to the box to decorate.

Stamp the sentiment on a white panel and back with colored cardstock before adhering to the front of the box.  Then stamp Snowy’s cup on a white panel and color with markers.  Cut out the image and adhere to the back panel with pop dots.

Now it's your turn!!
Happy stamping!!
