Coffee-Inspired Ideas

I am not a morning person. I am, however, a coffee person. The two projects below are inspired by the caffeine that takes the morning blues away!

The small shots in this layout showcase events from a recent trip. I crammed in large chipboard letters and layered sticker strips under the photos to create a busy look.

• Crop photos using a punch to keep grid snapshots unified
• Trim accents from patterned paper, as with the two birds on this page.
• Make an easy coffee mug piecing — Create two circles (one slightly smaller than the other) using a circle cutter. Cut off the tops of both circles so they are flat. Trim a handle from a smaller, punched circle. Add hand-drawn steam for a finishing touch.
• Prop up photos with adhesive to add dimension

On a recent Starbucks run, I spotted this create-your-own tumbler. The customizable container is a great gift idea. However, there isn’t much room for embellishing. (To insert the design, you remove the bottom of the tumbler, then slide in the design around the actual drink container inside.) I made mine using rub-ons and letter stickers — and the letter stickers were a tight fit. It would probably be best with only rub-ons and a couple photos.
