Coffee Table Gifts for Stamp Club
I saw a cute little Stand Up Treat Holder by Janet Wakeland online recently, and adapted her idea to the treats I wanted to use. I need taller sides to keep in our larger-sized beverage sachets,but wanted to show off the smaller items as well, so I came up with this!
Here it is before I added the treats. I used a different side of the Coffee Break dsp for each treat holder. I made one hot chocolate holder as one of my stamp club ladies doesn't like coffee.
I filled them with 2 hot beverage sachets, either hot chocolate or cappuccino and mocha. I included a wrapped tea bag, 2 barista sugar sticks, one brown and one white, that I sourced from The Little Big Company (https://www.tlbc.com.au/candy/rock-candy/),
and two Merci chocolates in the front.
I used the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cup Framelits and the matching cardstock. They were quite heavy when filled, I thought it was a great gift, and would look perfect on someone's desk at work for a little 'pick-me-up"!
This is the link to Janet's tutorial, I worked out my own measurements as my treat holder is bigger, but you will get the idea from her excellent youtube video:
Once you have watched Janet's video, and you have an idea of how the base and box are constructed, you might like to make my version, so here are the measurements, and they go together much the same way Janet's does:
cardstock base: 1 11.5cm x 29.7cm (full length of A4)
scored at 7 and a quarter inches (18.4cm) and again at 9 and a quarter inches (23.5cm) with a .5inch scored end
1 11.5 cm x 19.7cm (7.75") scored at .5inch . These two pieces join the same way they do in Janet's video.
The pocket at the front measures 11.5cm x 29.7cm (full length of A4)
scored at 1inch, 5.5inches, 6.5inches and 11inches. Turn and score at 1inch for the bottom.
To make the top edge of the pocket, I measured 1.5inches down and 1.5inches in and cut diagonally from each side, then across the front. The dsp is measured in the same way. If I have confused you, feel free to message me and I will reply with a picture diagram :)
