Starbucks has made is easy for papercrafters this year!
img_0588It’s easy to wrap gifts from Starbucks this year, I hardly had to do anything to the packaging! Love that their logo is “CRAFTED BY HAND AND HEART” this year!

To make the bag, I just used the bag from the store, and scored 1 1/4″ on the 2 sides and the bottom. That makes their flat bag gusseted, so you can fit a wider gift in it (like their adorable ornaments this year!) The ornament I chose to give is their signature cup, and on the opposite size it has the state of AZ on it.

img_0590I added the coffee cup pattern below. You can decorate the coffee cup any way you want! Our Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper goes well with this theme! I used a real Starbucks “hugger” and just trimmed the sides down to match my coffee cup, then adhered it to the front. Same with the Starbucks logo, I just cut it out and adhered it with Dimensionals.

img_0589The sentiment or gift card goes on the part that slides out of the cup. The lip stamp is retired, but have no fear, a new KISS STAMP will be coming out in the Spring Catalog!!!!

Here are the dimensions of the coffee cup card. It is a little taller than 5 1/2″, so if you need this card to fit in an envelope, you may want to make it a tiny bit smaller. I didn’t put my card in an envelope, I just slipped it in the gift bag.

When you adhere the coffee lid, put a strip of Tear Away Tape ON THE VERY TOP EDGE. You can see how I can still lift the bottom party. This is so the coffee lid will slide over the coffee cup. It will make more sense when you create it and slide it in the coffee cup card.

Hope you enjoy this! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
