Easy DIY Gifts For Coffee-Lovers!

Hello there!  We’re so excited to share even more simple ideas from Brittany Young, the Certified Celebrator.  We loved our Sunday Brunch with her — creating a welcoming and beautiful space to entertain anyone with supplies we already know and love.  Now, let’s take the same cheerful personality and infuse it into simple pick-me-ups you can give to all of the people in your life!

First of all, isn’t that just adorable?  Yes, it really is!  This Breakfast In A Cup is so thoughtful and cheerful — and completely customizable.  We simply took a disposable coffee cup, traced a coffee sleeve on our Sunday Adventure Prints and placed it in a cellophane bag with some paper shreds. Next, slide in a K-Cup of your choice + a breakfast bar or granola bar. Tie it up with some FSJ Lemongrass Journey Thread and embellish it further with the Limeade Splash Satin Ribbon.  Now, let’s add some handmade details that will make all the difference.

This tag is so simple yet adorable.  Stamp the waffle from the Sunday Morning Stamp set repeatedly using the Citrus Cooler True Color Fusion Ink Pad.  Use a circle punch to punch the circle and set aside.  You can now take your Pineapple Smoothie cardstock and stamp the cute coffee cup from the Sunday Morning stamp set with your Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink Pad.  Cut the cup using the matching die and adhere to the punched circle using a Journey Foam Square.  Finish tying up your bow and you’re all set! Drop it off on a doorstop or desk and you’ll have a happy recipient!

Would you like to see Kim and Brittany’s fun time putting this together? Check out the video right here:

Not only is the banana bread no fail (and yummy!) but the outside of the packaging looks so fun, too!  We just love how Kim + Brittany took a treat for a friend or family member and really made it special.  After tying up the bag with the Lemongrass Journey Thread, let’s create the tag that will have the recipient smiling.

Using your Sunday Adventure Prints and Bread Tag Die you’ll have your base easily! Simply dress up the tag with the Create A Bow mini die set (we used Orange Creamsicle cardstock) and the Sunshine Alpha. You will not believe how simple it is to create something so adorable.
