Don’t Worry – Be Frappy! Upcycled Starbucks Post-It Pen Holder

Good afternoon! I’m glad you could stop by for my next project for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

   

For this project, I upcycled the box from the recent Starbuck promo (the one that had the stickers in it), and turned it into a fun Post-It and pen holder, printing up my own sentiment:

Ahhh, fraps… the refreshing drink of summer!

  • Core’dinations aqua and white cardstock
  • Pebbles, Inc. Chalks

Newton’s Nook Spring Coffee Lovers Friendship Card & Post-It Cube Gift

I’m glad you’re here for another day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

This time I decided to make a sweet little gift set using Newton’s Nook Stamps. Their Inky Paws Challenge this month is to use this sketch:

Here’s the gift set I made:

Stamping the cube of Post-It notes wasn’t too difficult… just had to grasp them firmly so the individual pads wouldn’t slide apart! (they did separate just a little when I attached them to my background. Since I used an ultra strong adhesive, They’re not budging now!

    

I still giggle at the joke of ‘If friends were COFFEE (instead of FLOWERS), I’d pick you’! FYI, the backboard die cut is out of 2000# cardstock and I only put the cutting plate up to the edge of the die right before the pattern started again, so it wouldn’t cut the bottom. Then I took a paper cutter and cut straight on down 4 additional inches to wrap it behind and under the stack for stability.

Supplies used:

  • Newton’s Nook Designs stamp sets: Aloha Newton, Beautiful Blossoms, Beautiful Wings, and Newton Loves Coffee
  • Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies
  • Post-It note pads (6)
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 pink card and green and white cardstock
  • Memento dye inks: Bahama blue, Bamboo Leaves, Elderberry, Rhubarb Stalk,Rose Red, and Tuxedo Black
  • Papertrey Ink dye ink: Orange Zest
