a K-cup treat

Do you love your Keurig and Tassimo? ♥ Do your friends and family love theirs too? Today Virginia and I from the Scor-Pal team have the perfect summertime gift for you to create for those you care about. How about a unique box filled with iced teas, coffees, etc?

On my recent trip to the stamp store in Buffalo, NY I bought this cute little Nellie Snellen fairy and I was anxious to ink her up so she landed quite nicely on my project.  😉   Isn’t she sweet?

Inside the box I chose to put some Keurig K-cup iced tea pods for a perfect summertime treat.

Here’s some simple directions to get you started.  Virgina created the original box and I made an adjustment or two. 

1) For the box, start with a 9 1/4 x 9 1/4 inch square and place onto your Scor-pal. Score each side at 1 3/4 inches.
2) Fold along score lines. Choose two opposite sides and cut from the outside edge to the corner point where the score lines meet. Use scor-tape adhesive on the flaps and fold in to form the box.
3) To make the lid with a window in the middle, start with a 9 5/16 x 9 5/16 inch square. Repeat Step 1 and 2 but do not adhere the corner flaps until you create the window. To make the window, take a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square cardstock and center on the lid and trace with a pencil. Use scissors or a craft knife to cut out the square window. Do not worry that your cutting has to be perfect because you can use a border strip to cover the outside window edges.
4) Cut a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of acetate and put thin Scor-tape along the edges and adhere acetate over the open square. Fold in the corner flaps to create the lid.
5) You have just created a window box to fit 9 K-cups snugly and now you can have fun embellishing!

Now be sure to pop over to the Scor-pal blog for more samples by Virgina Nebel!  And also check out this thread on Splitcoast for additional samples.

    Greetings from Buffalo, NY! Great job on this project, Diane! I love how you colored the sweet little fairy then coordinated the colors on the box! I live close to Sharon’s store and spend way too much time there! (haha) I’ll have to pick up the little fairy the next time I go…although my coloring will never look as good as yours! Thank you for sharing your tutorial on how to make it also…what a great gift idea! debbie

  3. I LOVE this, Diane. The window in the lid is absolutely fabulous!!
