Coffee Lovers Hop Day 3 - Relax!

Day 3 of the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I've got something special for you!

There's a new file in town over at the Cutting Cafe and it's a very cool 3-D Cup.  Not able to leave awesome enough alone, I paired it with the flowers from the Flower Popup Card to make this cute gifty box..

I used the CTMH No Worries papers to create an easy breezy summery vacationy take a load off kind of feel.  

The 3-D Cup file comes with a bunch of coffee/tea sentiments that you can use along with your project and I die cut one in a circle and used it here as a tag along with some of the Complements from the No Worries paper pack.

And these popup flowers... so I had saved some of the morning coffee from me belly and was using it to create a kinda cool background on another project and decided since this gift box will contain some coffee type gifts, I'd use it to paint these flowers.  The lightest stains are the coffee and then to get my dark brown center I needed to use some watercolors because the coffee wasn't dark enough for my liking... it does give the project a nice coffee aroma and I love the distressed look of it.  I finished off the centers with some gold Nuvo drops.

Because these flowers are for a popup card they are all attached together, but to keep them in place on my cup, I attached them to a scalloped circle and created myself a lid for my cup:

You can see at the top here that my lid slides into the cup.  All I did was copy the base piece for the cup in Design Space and then I made it very thin, cut two more circles and put it together just like the cup.  I was going to make it an actual lid, however I forgot to make the circles bigger before I cut it so it didn't fit, but I was able to jam it inside the!  I've decided to change the file I saved in Design Space and make these circles a tiny bit smaller than the cup ones because I like how it fits inside the cup instead of outside.  Not that I'll always need a lid, but since I've done the work already, why not save it?

Now it's time to (see above photo) ... not really... back to work in my crafty space!

See you again soon!  And hey!  Don't forget to check out the Coffee Lovers Hop and play along... lots of great company and lots of great prizes!   And if you are playing along I'll be over to your place soon to see what you've created!
