Give The Gift Of Coffee
A simple gesture to say thank you
The other day on Facebook, I asked my friends a rhetorical question since my little guy just started daycare. Question: “Does this mean I have to buy his teachers gifts for the holidays?” Apparently, yes I do! If it weren’t for Pinterest that same day, I probably would have completely forgot about this and felt really bad, then ran out at the very last minute to find something to stick in a bag, and then felt even worse knowing that’s not how I do things!
When I was browsing the Silhouette Design Store, I came across a few of these K-cup holders. How stinkin’ cute are these?! Obviously, you would have to know for sure that the person uses a Kurig before giving this to them. So, if anyone is wondering… Yes, I do. 😉 I’m sure if you Google it or Pinterest it, you could find some kind of candy containers or something that would also fit in these holders. The cuteness of this little gift comes from the adorable ADORNit Coffee Time watercolor pages, that I made into a tag. They have an assortment of different coffee inspired designs that make sweet cards or tags for your coffee loving friends!

If you’re looking for a super easy, ridiculously cute gift for a friend, or possibly a teacher, this little K-cup holder is perfect. Let me show you, in a few short steps, just how easy it is to create.
Start by opening your design #169273 for the K-Cup Holder, in Design Studio. Ungroup all the objects.
This design would work best if you have your Cameo, but mine has been on the fritz, so I was able to use my Curio without any issues. Yes, I was holding my breath the entire time it was cutting the main piece, as it fits with just a hair between the edges!
I used the same color paper for the main piece and the k-cup holder insert, so load your desired color paper onto your mat, and cut out all the pieces. I wanted a sweet and simple box to match the tag I made, so I kept it simple with yellow and kraft paper.
I taped my outside pieces onto the main holder before I started to assemble. This makes it a little easier to adhere them.
Then, simply fold on the perforated edges of the main piece, and glue or tape together. I always use my E-Z Runner (Get it HERE or HERE) for projects like these. It does a great job holding, even on thicker card stock. Do the same for the k-cup insert, and place inside of the holder.
Voila! How easy was that?! Easy, indeed. Now, I had some extra embellishments that I wanted to add, without going overboard.
Then, use your creativity to layer card stock, creating an adorable tag. Add some ribbon and pack up your sweet little K-cup holder.
