Guest for Dare 2B Artzy Project 2!

Good Morning Dare 2B Artzy Fans!

Pam here back for another guest spot! And I am totally loving this next awesome set of stamps called Perk Up!  There are so many wonderful sentiments included with this set. I think you are going to love it!  I decided to make a small little gift for a friend who wasn't feeling well.  I hope you try this fun project!

Here are the designer steps:

Start with an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of white card stock. Start with the 8 1/2 side up on your scoreboard and score at 2 and 6 1/2.  Turn so the 11 inch side is up on your scoreboard and score at 4, 6 1/4, 8 1/4 and 10 1/2.  Cut away all four corners as shown.

Using a 1 3/4 inch punch, punch out two circles and place them on the small 1/2 flap side.  These will serve as place holders for your K cups so that you can center them correctly.  After you have them where you want them go ahead and punch the holes over top of the place holders.
After you punched your holes make your cuts or slits for the side flaps as shown.

Cut two pieces of bright pink card stock one at 4 1/4 x 2 and the other at 4 1/4 x 1 3/4 and run them through the embossing machine. Glue the smaller piece just next to the cut holes as shown.
Flip the project over and adhere the other piece to the top.  I rounded the corners just for a more finished look.  Using the fold guidelines begin to form your box. Tape the flaps and make sure your pink card stock is showing both at the bottom and top of the coffee holder.


Stamp two heart cups and color with copics and cut out.  Then stamp the checked frame with the Hope you Perk Up soon sentiment inside the frame and cut out.  Plus punch 3 small hearts and attach to project as shown add the bow and you have a finished gift!

I hope you give this project a try it is a sweet little gift!

Take Care and Blessings
