For today I used the ADORABLE Garden Cafe line of paper and some coordinating accessories to create an apron card (Anna Wight’s template) and a matching little teacup with a Keurig tea pod (K-cup) inside.

On the pocket of the apron card, I scored some diagonal lines in both directions and then sponged over them to highlight the embossing.  The pocket was attached with Scor-Tape.  I added American Crafts buttons and a coordinating dimensional sticker.

To make the teacup, I followed the directions for the coffee cup, except I made it shorter in height.  I started with a 9 x 3 1/2″ strip instead of 9 x 4 1/2″.  The handle was made with circle punches and I inserted the ends in the side seam instead of attaching them to the outside.  The Scor-Pal and Scor-Tape are AWESOME for projects like this!

To decorate the teacup a bit, I used my initial from the American Crafts Thickers (glitter foam stickers).  I also placed a little flower from the Accents & Phrases Sticker Book onto a scrap of the paper, cut it out, and inserted a medium jewel brad before attaching it to the cup.

Here I removed the Keurig pod so you can see the cute dotted design on the inside.  The tag on the Keurig pod is also from American Crafts.  I altered it a bit with a thin strip of the Garden Cafe paper and punched the bottom edge.  The “doily” underneath  the cup is a diecut.

I had a lot of fun creating this…I hope you enjoyed it too!  I have to say…the American Crafts paper is a nice thickness…not flimsy at all…and was perfect to use for my projects!  The accessories are delightful too!  ♥  They make a great combination with the Scor-Pal products!
